Abstract

In this study, we would like to design and develop an embodied learning system that learners can use their hands to hold on the controllers as their real hands, and they can easily move and pile up the blocks to another. Learners' spatial ability can be improved such as their spatial visualization ability, spatial orientation ability, and mental rotation ability. The experimental study adopted the purposive sampling method, and ask learners finish the questionnaire after the learning through immersive virtual reality. As the research result showed positively that both learners' learning interest and flow experience are positive related.
