215 - How to Design Instructionally Effective Virtual Reality Experiences

March 31, 2020
The Rosen Centre
Virtual Reality

Creating an exciting experience in the VR headset is only part of the solution. How do you ensure it's instructionally effective, too? Most VR experiences barely scratch the surface of what we can produce­—sometimes passive documentaries and video with little, if any, interaction. The user is merely a bystander and not part of the experience. Effective VR learning solutions often need to go much further to become a realistic experience that leads to deeper learning.

In this session, you’ll gain an understanding of the instructional design principles that work in a VR environment. You'll learn the techniques that are instructionally effective in VR and how to blend VR learning experiences with other instructional modalities. You'll find out how to create scenarios and activities that leverage the full 3D world within VR. You'll also explore techniques for scripting and storyboarding the learning experience as well as when to mix video with CGI in the virtual space to enable practice and rehearsal that reinforce learning. You'll leave this session with an instructional framework that was specifically crafted to leverage the potential of VR.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to design an instructionally effective VR program
  • What interactive techniques are effective in VR
  • What limitations of VR prevent learning
  • Best practices and worst practices for VR design
  • How to script and storyboard the 360 experience
  • How to mix VR with other instructional modalities for a blended solution
