Eight 3D Virtual World Design Principles

Your competitors are leveraging the power of 3D learning environments to encourage collaboration, exploration and genuine competitive advantage. Are you? To avoid the perception that virtual immersive environments are a fad or inappropriate for corporate learning, make sure you design the virtual immersive experience around these eight principles:

Instructionally Grounded. Ensure the learning intervention is addressing a vetted business need, and that the learning objectives support that need.

Reflectively Synthesized. Self-reflection and group-based synthesis of the experience should be core to the design.

Participant Centered. The participant (not the instructor) should be the center of the learning experience.

Contextually Situated. These environments require the creation of a specific context within which learning occurs.

Discovery Driven. Create an environment that selectively reveals content, information, incentives and learning elements over time.

Action Oriented. Virtual immersive environments are about doing, not about observing.

Consequentially Experienced. Learner experiences need to have realistic and substantial cause and effect as feedback throughout the experience.

Collaboratively Motivated. Learners must work together to achieve the benefits of the collaborative space of a virtual immersive environment.
