Creating Case Study Educational Simulations for In- and Out-of-World Use

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join a lively presentation on the techniques used to create multi-use case study simulations in an OpenSimulator grid. Also, the early findings from a study -- of the impact of increased out-of-world exposure to virtual simulations on the participation rate for in-world learning activities -- will be discussed. Using course-related case studies, screen capture video clip dramatizations can be created in-world (and made available -- out-of-world -- in online course sites). Accordingly, every member of the selected online courses has an opportunity to view the case study simulations and learn about the available virtual world learning activities. Additionally, the smaller subset of students that volunteer for the in-world activities have expanded opportunities to either experience the pre-staged case study simulation in-world or to take part in dramatizations that will be displayed out-of-world.

Professor of Practice, Tulane University
Dr. Kay McLennan is a Professor of Practice at Tulane University. Kay has been creating and using virtual world learning simulations in her online economics and business studies courses since 2008. In particular, Kay uses student feedback to continually refine and expand the educational simulations she creates to use in her e-courses (see highlights of the student survey data collected @ http://scsmetaverse.wp.tulane.edu/virtual-world-learning/student-feedback/). Also, Kay's... Read More →
