Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6249)


This paper describes an approach, where an O3D-based virtual environment for learning cultural heritage is combined with a game environment to provide a friendly environment that makes learning more pleasant. We describe the game flow, design approach, and the exploration-based O3D API for creating interactive learning environment first. By using interactive teaching and learning system and multimedia exhibition methods, the game can arouse the enthusiasm of players’ learning.
