Purpose of Study

The goal of this survey is to establish an up-to-date overview of which topics, technologies, and learning goals play an important role in the teaching of 3D Interaction and Virtual Reality. You are being invited to participate in this survey because you teach a class/module/unit at the University level that involves topics in the areas of 3D Interaction and Virtual Reality.

The results of the survey will be shared with the rest of the community, with the aim of improving the current practices. 

Conditions for Exclusion

The survey is open to anybody, aged 18 and older, who has taught a course involving any topic related to the areas of 3D Interaction and Virtual Reality at the University level.

Risks

There are no direct risks associated with participation in this study, besides those related to the normal use of a web browser on a computing device.

Procedure

Before taking part in this study, in the next screen you will be asked to give your informed consent.

If you do not agree to give consent, the survey will terminate and no data will be collected.

The survey consists in a variable set of questions concerning different areas of teaching, such as: addressed topics, used technologies, evaluation of student learning, etc. If you teach multiple units that are related to 3D and/or VR, you can submit multiple responses. Every survey response must be related to a specific unit/course.

You may stop participating at any time. You can pause and resume your survey at a later date by clicking on the "Resume later" button in the top bar. Incomplete responses will be removed at the expiration of the survey.
