CURRENT RESEARCH: Engineering virtual reality for real learning. Funded by JAIST kakenhi no. 18K02940 (AY2018 ~ 2021).
The Research hypothesis: Learning performance in a 3D virtual world is significantly increased when virtual activities are synchronized with real-world outcomes.
Significance of the research: This research will determine quantitative metrics of learning thereby enabling education and industry to appropriate virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality (VR/AR/MR) technologies.
