The aim is to design, develop and evaluate a 3D virtual learning environment incorporating a haptic interface. This will enable students in secondary schools to explore and experiment in the tactile 3D world. The project will investigate the extent to which learning in such a rich cooperative 3D haptic environment supports learning of complex scientific concepts.
