ABSTRACT


 The Virtual Reality (VR) technology has been around for years

and constantly changing and expanding. In this paper, we

present the game theme instructional module (GTI) centered on

Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture. The GTI module

enabled in teaching computer science undergraduates the binary

trees data structure concepts using gaming metaphor. We used

Python for writing codes in worldviz vizard toolkit with the

stand-by avatar (3D model) created as an instructor. We have

developed a four-dimension classroom activities matrixframework

to help determine the effectiveness of GTI modules.

The pilot study result show the GTI module when implemented

in VR environment as an instructional aid gives improved

learning outcomes with benefit of an engaging platform for

students’ creative problem solving challenges and successes.
