Web3D Based Multimedia Software of Safety Knowledge for Children
Safety education for children is still a urgent task in china, teaching children to learn safety knowledge in life is very important. With the development of Internet, there is a growing concern in web based e-learning software. Based on the psychological characteristic of children and constructivism learning theory, web3d is a good tool for developing education software for children. The design method of web3d software is introduced with traffic education and virtual digestive system, a finite state machine expresses the behavior state of a virtual character, and NPC characters are introduced to increase the interest of the scene. The Web3d based education software can run both on local PC and on the Internet, a child user can explore safety knowledge in interactive method. The demo system can make children safety education more vivid, interactive and interesting.
