The Scientific Approach in Designing a Virtual Reality Educational Program

Abstract

Educational Virtual Reality (VR) is an improved multimedia tool that creates a computer simulation learning environment which is very close to reality. It is realized a sufficient improvement level in several applications, such as education, research, and training. The implementation of virtual reality offers numerous educational benefits which leads to use it for more than the traditional instructions. But, the main limitation of using this technology is the cost. In this paper, the main concepts, bases, approaches, requirements, and components that are essential to create an educational virtual reality program and its main strength and weakness points are explored. In addition, the design making process of the virtual reality program and the use of fuzzy logic in the building of educational virtual reality program are described.
