X3D and E-Learning
Goals: X3D and E-Learning
The Web3D Consortium is starting a new interest group: X3D and E-Learning. We want to collaboratively harmonize and integrate X3D content with other standards to enable Web-Enabled 3D content, tools and platforms for online e-learning.
Our tasks include
• Explore and demonstrate best practices for integrating X3D Graphics models with e-learning content.
• Create demonstration examples showing how X3D model display, animation and user interaction can all augment the learning effectiveness of online textbooks.
• Show how X3D can serve as the common archival publishing format for a wide variety of diverse 3D graphics technologies.
• Document these lessons learned for repeatable use by partnered consortium members and the educational community.
• Formalize this effort and start a Working Group to implement these requirements to the respective standards specifications.
We are working on the following tasks.
- Maintain this X3D and E-Learning wiki page to track issues and progress
- Identify people in Web3D and IMS Consortium who want to collaborate with on these issues
- Report on efforts regularly to firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list
- Discussions to occur on the email@example.com mailing list and firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list
- Other tasks and efforts as needed
