Abstract:Focusing on the challenges of teaching virtual reality creation and preservation, our paper will present a case study involving the virtual recreation of the Bethel AME Church sanctuary. We were particularly interested in students’ skills, the technology, and costs associated with teaching and learning virtual reality, and how these factors influence overall student learning experiences. Two courses are explored: 3D Production and Digital Preservation. We have learned that teaching and learning in this space is technology and skill intensive. By assessing the skills and technology needed as well as the costs and student experiences, we are better able to communicate the needs of these projects to potential funders and collaborators. We’ve determined that without external funding, we are currently at capacity and will need funding for additional collaborative projects. The level of technical ability of the students influenced their level of satisfaction as well as their capacity to learn.
