Section 5: Documenting Data from a Virtual Reality Project#

5.3 Documenting the audience#

In addition to project documentation (see Section 5.2), it is important to record information about the intended audience for the virtual reality resource. This documentation will help to guide the development of the resource and also enables later resource discovery and reuse. Such information is particularly important for virtual reality applications which are developed for education or training purposes. The Dublin Core Education working group proposes that the following information should be recorded:

A description of the type of user for which the resource is intended. For educational and training resources state the category/academic level of the intended users, e.g. sixth-form students.

For educational or training resources that are presented to an audience by an individual or organisation, describe who mediates a user's access to the resource, e.g. museum interpreter.

Education standard
For resources that have been developed to conform to an established academic or process standard, a url or publication reference for that standard should be recorded, e.g. English National Curriculum Key Stage 4, http://www.nc.uk.net/.

Interactivity type
Describe the type of interactivity that the end-user has with the resource.

Interactivity level
Describe the level of interactivity that the end-user has with the resource.

Typical learning time
Describe the typical length of time that it is anticipated that an end-user will spend interacting with a resource.
