A Virtual Reality OER Platform to Deliver Phobia-Motivated Experiences

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • This paper describes an on-going project to develop a Virtual Reality platform to deliver phobia-inspired experiences. These experiences could induce a reaction in the user that may help the user overcome, or alleviate, the phobia. The platform includes monitoring sensors that could be used to measure how much impact the experience is having. The project development has been taking place at a Sino-foreign Higher Education Institution in Mainland China, University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC). UNNC has already been host to a number of OER (Open Educational Resource) development projects, and the current project is also anticipated to eventually be released to the OER community. This paper presents the background, development, and current state of the project. Challenges to project completion, and future work are also outlined.
