The third result of the project will comprise a VRLE (Virtual Reality Learning Environment) Resource Directory aiming to facilitate the adoption and implementation of VRLEs in HEI (higher education institution) teaching practices.
This directory will include, apart from the VRLE and the Manual, publicly available materials (e.g., 3D models, freely available VRChat assets etc.) to be used in VRLEs.
Currently, the amount of publicly available resources is massive and growing fast.
Most often, educators interested in utilizing them in their -physical or virtual- classrooms face difficulty in assessing them and choosing appropriate and/or usable assets.
Moreover, such materials are unclassified, thus difficult to assess their utility for the particular
requirements of HEIs education.
The VRLE Resource Directory will enable the documentation and classification of publicly available material (e.g., by discipline, such as Physics, Archaeology, Computer Science, Medical Sciences, etc.), allowing HEIs teachers and educators to quickly browse them based on their interests, and choose the appropriate ones for their classes.
Apart from classifying publicly available materials, REVEALING will also validate their compatibility with VRLEs (e.g. overall polygon number of 3D models, texture resolution, compatibility with the VRChat engine etc.).
