Abstract

Displaying text information in virtual environment is an important demand during 3D Collaborative Virtual Environment (CVE) implementation. Sharing information is the foundation of any collaboration. To facilitate group collaboration, we argue that the positioning of multiple displays in 3D CVEs might influence users’ interaction and further more, collaborative learning. In this paper, fifteen educational technology majored graduate students were assigned to three groups, and discussed on a multi-perspective topic - social network tools used in education. Three different positioning of information displays were randomly assigned to support the students’ discussion. The discussion sessions were recorded and analyzed. From the analysis, we conclude that the rule of thumb to place multiple displays was to ensure all users could be kept together during discussion, and usability issues, like providing users sufficient room to navigate, also need to be taken into consideration.
