INTEGRATING KNOWLEDGE FROM VIRTUAL REALITY ENVIRONMENTS TO LEARNING SCENARIO MODELS - A Meta-modeling Approach

Nicolas Marion, Ronan Querrec, Pierre Chevaillier

Abstract

This paper focuses on learning scenario modeling for Virtual Reality Learning Environments (VRLE). Learning scenario models used in computer-supported learning environments are usually not able to describe educational activities implying interaction of learners with a virtual environment. In this paper, we propose an IMS-LD extension making it possible to describe executable educational activities taking place in virtual worlds. Moreover, the model described in this paper is generic in the sense that it can create scenarios regardless of the nature of virtual environments or application domain.
