The Application of VLE with 3D Google Earth and Interactive Technology

Wei-Kai Liou, Chun-Yen Chung

Abstract

The purpose of this research is to provide a viable, efficient and economical Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) educational system, which is easy to show VLE interactive system in any classroom. And most students and teachers are highly satisfied with, the system and willing to use. The effect of the proposed interactive system that incorporates 3D Google Earth into VLE may be summarized as the follows: 1) With a projector, screen, PC, LaDIS, KMC, WCT, 3D Google Earth and B&R 3D eyeglasses it is easy to show VLE interactive system in any classroom. 2) The proposed VLE system provides a viable, efficient and economical VLE educational system. 3) Most students and teachers are highly satisfied with, the system and willing to use, this form of VLE interactive system because of its naturally superior interactive performance in classes.
