|Title:||Institutional support for and barriers to the use of 3D immersive virtual worlds in higher education||Contributor(s):||Dalgarno, Barney (author); Lee, Mark JW (author); Carlson, Lauren (author); Gregory, Sue (author) ; Tynan, Belinda (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/9329||Abstract:||Anecdotal evidence suggests that despite recognising the potential benefits of 3D immersive virtual worlds for learning and teaching, many academic staff have chosen not to adopt them, due in large part to the complex array of technical and policy hurdles that must be negotiated in order to make use of such resources within higher education institutions. This paper presents selected results from the questionnaire phase of an Australia and New Zealand-wide scoping study of the use of 3D immersive virtual worlds in higher education. The particular focus in the paper is on findings from the questionnaire about support provided within institutions, technical and other barriers encountered by those considering adoption, and whether and how these were overcome.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||ascilite 2011: Changing demands, changing directions, Hobart, Australia, 4th - 7th December, 2011||Conference Details:||ascilite 2011: Changing demands, changing directions, Hobart, Australia, 4th - 7th December, 2011||Source of Publication:||Changing Demands, Changing Directions: Proceedings ascilite Hobart 2011, p. 316-330||Publisher:||Univeristy of Tasmania||Place of Publication:||Hobart, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||130103 Higher Education||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.leishman-associates.com.au/ascilite2011/
