School of Computer Science student, Andrew Cardwell, was given the opportunity to present his work at EduLearn 2017, Barcelona.
BSc (Hons) Games Computing student Andrew (pictured, far right) demonstrated his work on the use of virtual reality in education through a case study of Crime Scene Investigation at the Virtual Reality Experience session which he chaired.
Andrew said: “It was a great experience as I got to share my work with other researchers and professors using Virtual Reality from all around the globe and was also able to learn from their work.”
Andrew’s CSI work provides the user with the ability to step into a virtual crime scene with pre-loaded set ups aimed at developing various skills. The VR programme also works dynamically and can be programmed to change in real-time as the user moves through different crime scenes.
Andrew’s case study was co-authored with academics from the School of Computer Science and Dr Ruth Croxton, Forensic Science Programme Leader, School of Chemistry, University of Lincoln. You can read the paper here.
