GeViLab (eTeach)

GeViLab aims to ­make a significant contribution to the digital enrichment of learning and teaching concepts in hybrid form. Participation in experiments enables students to apply their theoretical knowledge and skills in solving complex practical tasks, which supports the overall understanding of the subject matter. Participation is often not possible, especially in the case of special and large-scale tests. Virtual reality offers an elegant and efficient way for students to take part in experiments without affecting the realism and correctness of the experiment.

The project focuses on the development of virtual rooms, in which students can take part in recorded special experiments under supervision (relocation of the laboratory environment to the virtual environment) and discuss the results with the teachers and fellow students. The virtual experiments will be moved to a 3D room, the possibility of joint exchange (multi-user) with desktop computers or VR glasses in the context of lectures will be created and innovative learning status queries e.g., questions about the spatial-temporal assignment will be worked out. In addition, individual and group tasks will be assigned to the students to test the level of knowledge and understanding.
