Abstract

Design education is concerned with learning theory and its applications in the design of artifacts that are essential to our society. 3D virtual worlds have the potential to make a major contribution to design education as a new teaching and learning environment, supporting synchronised communication and 3D modeling. This paper presents three categories of formal methods we have adopted for evaluating 3D virtual worlds in design education. The paper concludes by evaluating the effectiveness of the different methods through comparison and discussion.

Keywords: 3D virtual worlds, evaluation methods, design education, collaborative design, creative design
