Yesterday, I had the opportunity to present at the eLearning Guild’s “Designing and Managing Learning in 3-D Virtual Worlds and Immersive Environments” for the opening general session of the online conference. It was a lot of fun with a great group of attendees. My subject was “Applying the ADDIE Model to 3D Virtual Learning Worlds”
We discussed ways in which the traditional method of instructional design needs to be modified to accommodate elements of 3D virtual worlds (we call them Virtual Immersive Environments).
While the presentation below is not the same one I gave for the Guild, it does have many of the same concepts and ideas.
Also, several people asked for some resources related to virtual worlds so here are a few:
Here are links to Virtual Worlds (beyond Second Life):
And here is a great tour of many virtual worlds, all in 8 minutes.
Of course, here are some Second Life resources and blog entries the provide a good deal of information about using virtual immersive environments for learning:
Enjoy the resources and please add more!!!
