Abstract

Online interactive 3D virtual environments are becoming increasingly globally populated and integrated into every day physical society. This paper discusses the development of online interactive 3D games technologies and how integration of these media can extend the ‘traditional’ learning and teaching experience.

In this paper the initial stages of the research project are described and the development of an online 3D virtual interactive learning and teaching environment for the School of Art & Design is presented using a series of screen shots.

The research project is exploring the explosion in popularity of Massively Multiplayer Online Games (MMOGs) and on-line interactive 3D programming tools, that when integrated are enabling new and innovative pedagogies to evolve, which will influence the future of our learning and teaching experiences.

At the Teaching & Learning Conference we presented the methods used for the development of 3D virtual interactive learning environments, where virtual 3D students and staff can interact and experience university life as part of an online virtual educational community. The interactive 3D virtual learning environment can include online teaching support materials, links to ‘live’ lectures and provide real-time distance learning experiences for off- campus students and international/franchise courses.
