See how to implement an immersive, computer-based environment to enhance your biology or earth science curriculum. Learn how these environments operate and the overall impact they can have on science education. Assist the development group at NDSU in implementing these worlds in your classroom.

The purpose of the course is to study the theory, practice, implementation, dissemination, and institutionalization of role-based immersive virtual environments (IVEs) for science education. The topics under discussion will therefore be broad. Particpants will engage in the study of immersive virtual environments for science education in the context of instruction in the grade 6-12 classroom. Participants will be expected to evaluate these systems in terms of current state standards and produce a portfolio document.
