Abstract

The goal of the present study was to develop a virtual reality classroom, to improve student's Learning performance and outcomes. A serious virtual reality learning environment was developed, integrating virtual reality technology, virtual reality device, as well as 3D interactive virtual reality digital information content. To evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed design, students' performance in terms of their learning achievement and learning motivation was examined. 105 high-school students from Taiwan were divided into three individual groups of 35 students each, with one control group and experimental groups. The results of this virtual reality classroom showed significantly better learning motivation, learning outcomes and positive impacts on learning students' achievement scores.
