The current classroom experience across colleges and universities is typically based on one or more of the following: lecture, discussions, hands-on activities, laboratory experiments and knowledge assessment activities. Our applied research team (S.M.U.R.F) in the Department of Computer Science at GCU is investigating the potential of adding a new dimension to the classroom experience: mixed reality, i.e. the combination of virtual reality, augmented reality and interaction with real objects. The use of virtual reality technology while interacting with physical objects in class provides multiple opportunities for enhancing learning activities from a pedagogical and student engagement perspectives. Our team’s current research focuses on the following question: “What is the feasibility of virtual/mixed reality environments as experiential learning environments?”
