Forensic investigation simulation for students at UWE. The simulation allows students to explore a detail rich environment collecting a variety of information from each object using an interactive tool. They can place rulers to take screen shots simulating the use of photographs to document a scene, collect finger mark information and test their methodology for approaching a crime scene investigation. The crime scene is set in a bedsit environment and is based on actual events allowing the students to relate what they see in the simulation to other learning materials used on the course.
Environment for use in gamefication of presentations given on distance learning courses using the BBC show Dragon’s Den as an inspiration. Students present their ideas and tutors give feedback by bidding a score. These scores are displayed above the tutor’s avatars as they bid giving real time feedback to the students as they present.
