The Search Is Over

I’ve decided to work with Dr Papka. We’ve decided that I will be doing my research in Virtual Realities in Education. Most likely, the system will try to teach 3 dimensional mechanical physics. The process right now, as I’m starting the proposal, involves me learning a few new libraries, mainly the features offered by Unity and the library that integrates the oculus rift into that reality.

The plan right now is to have most of the world generate on runtime to keep the program size small. Lessons will generate in a small room with voice instructions leading people through the examples. Most likely, the experiment will consist of a pretest, a few different styles of learning the same topic, and a post-test to measure learning among the samples.

  1. Hi Tripp,

    I’m so glad that you were able to find such a good fit for a mentor in Dr. Papka! I’m happy to hear that you’ve begun the process of starting the proposal too. Let us know if you have any questions about writing it. We’re always available at ResearchRookies@niu.edu.

    Best,

    Megan

  2. Tripp,
    I’m glad you have been able to narrow down your topic. Your research sounds interesting, even though I don’t know much about how it works. It will be cool to see it all come together! Keep working hard, and keep working on that proposal!
