Abstract

Virtual Reality is gathering increasing popularity for Intelligent Tutoring Systems. We introduce an approach that improves the baseline VR experience for ITS by enabling access to open educational resources and more intelligent navigation with the support of multiple artificial intelligence algorithms. A preliminary user study result not only reveals the potential of the proposed method, but also helps to identify the clues to improve the current design.
