The system, based on virtual reality technology from EON Reality, allows the students at St. Clair County Community College, Michigan to learn about emergency response using interactive 3D visualizations. When using the system an object appears to pop out in the middle of the room and becomes responsive to the user's actions.
Steven L. Fosgard, Associate Dean of Instruction Department, has conducted the development of the emergency response presentation. It has been used as a teaching aid in the classroom to visualize ways of handling hazardous materials in case of a chemical plastic disaster. "With the use of 3D technology solutions the learner views a person, place or thing as the selected object would appear in real life," says Marly Bergerud, vice president of education development at EON Reality, virtual reality and interactive provider based in Irvine, Calif. "This allows students the ability to learn through interactive, real-world experiences in the comfort of a classroom."
