Creating Cyberworlds: Experiences in Computer Science Education

M. Gutierrez, D. Thalmann, F. Vexo
2004 International Conference on Cyberworlds  
This article shows that the creation of cyberworlds (interactive virtual environments) can be an excellent educational tool covering a wide range of computer science and engineering disciplines. We present the experiences gathered during more than one semester of work with computer science students in the framework of semester projects at the Virtual Reality lab of EPFL. Our objective is to share the lessons learnt by both the students and researchers (project advisors). We describe the
