The design principles of the applications are described in detail as well as the technical characteristics of the application. A pilot evaluation of the teaching approach is also presented and the results indicate a strong positive impact on studentsâ performance. The application also aims to emphasize the significant advantages of VRML as an efficient way of offering ICT course materials to students.
