Abstract

The rapid growth in the use of virtual worlds in educational contexts has raised many questions about the pedagogical benefits of these technologies for teaching and learning. This symposium will focus on the use of scenario-based multi-user virtual environments (MUVEs) in education and will specifically focus on: 1) the role of virtual worlds in education; 2) the value of scenario-based MUVEs in inquiry learning; 3) the role of 'collaboration' in a multi-user environment; 4) the design issues; and 5) the challenges that need to be addressed to ensure that students can benefit from the virtual experience.
