Designing a Curriculum With Custom and Present Virtual Reality


The pandemic has created many challenges for education. Despite many schools now having already returned to instruction in-person as opposed to the challenge of doing so virtually, many have adapted to the new normal of having hybrid modes of instruction. One of these methods is through VR/AR technology. This paper will discuss how custom VR/AR applications can be used for education; particularly on how to design a curriculum which incorporates pre-selected research areas that can be made by teachers through educational software to be visualised in VR/AR for students to directly experience the areas and how students can also be directed to model these areas as part of their learning. How this and leveraging available resources for learning for common subjects such as Chemistry from seeing 3D visualisations of molecules can create an interactive classroom, whether it be inperson or virtual, would be engaging to students will be discussed and how these experiences can be best adapted to fit such experiences will then be discussed. As part of this, a case study based on the authors’ experience will also be included to discuss how a custom VR application based on a research area that students in a course are currently researching the area needed and how it became a core part of the course's curriculum. Finally, the authors will discuss the future of virtual reality for education and how it serves as a solid foundation to build on for creating further interactive curriculums of the future.
