Abstract

To overcome the challenges of instructing on spatial concepts remotely, we propose Virtual Demonstrator, a virtual reality (VR) presentation software for educators. Virtual Demonstrator provides a suite of tools for creating spatial presentations in VR, analogous to 2D slide-based presentation software. Within our software, Visual Elements are combined across a spatiotemporal space, with discrete states akin to presentation slides. This educational resource is designed to address a growing need to learn without physical presence, and to leverage 3D spaces for learning complex spatial concepts. A timeline expands a 3D environment into another dimension, allowing for an expanded design space.
