Abstract

With the ever-expanding development of affordable and available virtual reality headsets, there is a great opportunity for improving learning outcomes through virtual learning. Towards a future of online chemistry education, we present a titration experiment with a corresponding physical haptic burette to embed the physical sensations of labwork inside virtual reality learning for broad access. Our work in progress paper investigates how tactile interactions into fully immersive worlds can improve learning outcomes in multi-modal manners and lead to better understanding and retention of key chemistry concepts, e.g., titration principles.
