Abstract

During the spring of 2013 a university course was taught entitled, "Virtual Reality in Education" to a group of preservice teachers. The course took place inside a virtual reality (VR) environment, called OpenSim. This paper will share instructional design decisions and lessons learned. It will identify a rationale and identify the affordances of Virtual Reality environments. This includes a sense of place, kinesthetic movement, object identity, self-presence, collaborative presence, and creation. Recommendations for implementation are also listed.
