2009 Computer-Aided Design of User Interfaces VI  
We developed a free form deformation application for an immersive environment in which users can interact freely using data gloves.  ...  In fact, the degree of symmetry of the tasks performed with each hand seem to have a significant impact on whether or not users take advantage of bimanual possibilities.  ...  -an object using their bare hands, as they would with a real object. It is also possible to explore 3D scenes at real scale, allowing to experiment total immersion in a virtual world.  ...

Paradigms in Physics Education Research [article]

Amy D. Robertson, Rachel E. Scherr, Sarah B. McKagan
2018 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we describe two paradigms in physics education research (PER): recurrence-oriented and case-oriented PER.  ...  We briefly offer examples in which researchers take up both the recurrence- and case-oriented research paradigms.  ...  Individuals conducting case-oriented research thus immerse themselves in the details of a local context, separating the universal from the particular by connecting case to theory.  ...
