2019 #VWEDU: #DTA: Rezmela™ supports easy creation of instructional scenes. A demonstration in VWMOOC19

Rezmela™ supports easy creation 
of instructional scenes
A demonstration in VWMOOC19

A demonstration of the RezMela™ system.  The system itself could work with any objects, thus allowing Illustrative layouts, as practice, or arrangements as student products.  

  • Key word: rez
  • Rez:  In virtual worlds, cause a virtual object to appear and become available for use
  • The virtual object can be a building and its contents
  • Education research calls virtual worlds MultiUser Virtual Environments (MUVEs)
  • Educational research on MUVEs

Demonstration video

  • Rethinking Content Creation in Virtual Environments (Video)
  • Video is long--you don't need to watch in all at once.
  • Ann von Rhein (avatar in SL) and the Origin team in Open Sim
  • New way of creating learning environments without knowledge of building or coding.
  • Example apps show how educators can get educational content without building.
  • The environments show the application of RezMelatools across learning domains.
  • Created scenes can be saved and recreated later (for other classes).
  • Classes and groups of students can meet in the instructional scene.
  • Teachers can teach in virtual worlds and rely on builders to build.

Structured presentation 
  • If students gather to work on a presentation, they need structure.
  • They can rez guidance on presentations when they need it.
  • That can be a roadmap for preparing presentations if you want.
A museum beside 
your class room
  • And it is only there when you want it.
  • Or when your class needs it for their studies.
  • Museums could be designed by subject matter experts.
  • Just as text books were supposed to be prepared.
  • A museum could be used by an unlimited number of classes.
  • And the classes can be anywhere in the world.
