Abstract

This paper describes our new global PBL (gPBL) and discusses its evaluation. We constructed a 6-week project-based-learning class entitled “Design and Implementation of Virtual Space” and conducted it twice a year from 2006. Based on that class, we performed interactive remote teaching trials using a shared virtual space between two universities two times in 2008 and 2010. After these trials, we improved the curriculum by employing tactile information into the virtual space in addition to the existing visual and auditory information. We added a workshop on the tactile device to the class and expanded the interactive remote teaching trials in two directions: sharing tactile information in a common virtual space (hardware) and generalizing the development platform (software). We experimentally confirmed our system between the Shibaura Institute of Technology (SIT) in Japan and the Thai-Nichi Institute of Technology (TNI) in Thailand. Based on this background, we began a new gPBL with a tactile device and HTML5 at TNI between SIT and TNI.
