A Measure of Precision Regarding Procedural Tasks of Non-Traditional, Adult Learners In an Immersive Virtual Learning Environment

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Immersive Virtual Learning Environments (IVLEs) are an increasingly popular tool used extensively in modern training techniques, but little is known about the learning transfer process accompanying curricula based on these methods and the ability of the technique to teach procedures. As an advantageous instrument in teaching and developing psychomotor and spatial activities, further research and assessment into the strengths and applications of IVLE in training activities is needed to evaluate the contributions of this tool in transportation training and development. Using a highway flagman IVLE training program, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the learning experience and learning gains of participants enrolled in the training. The training program's successes in reaching a wide range of learners and recreating real-world situations support the use of IVLE-based learning to increase engagement and knowledge transfer.
