THE EFFECT OF CONSTRAINT BASED MULTI-MODAL VIRTUAL ASSEMBLY ON STUDENT’S LEARNING

I. REHMAN, S. ULLAH

Abstract


In this article we propose Virtual Reality Training System (VRTS), a computer generated environment for assembly. VRTS provides training to students to assemble a three phase step down transformer on one hand and renders multimodal information about objects that enhances students’ theoretical knowledge on the other hand. The system is cost effective, does not need complex set up and its implementation in real educational environments is easy. Low cost ARToolkit markers are utilized to have real time interaction. The analysis reveals that mean learning of students who got training in VRTS students is 81.5% as compared to 35.75% of those who did not get training in VRTS. Similarly experimental results show that students who used VRTS are more confident in performing the same task in real world as compared to students who did not received training through VRTS.
