  1. Creating a Virtual Chemistry Lab Experiment Using Xbox Kinect Kurt Winkelmann Chemistry Department

  2. Background • Online education is very popular and is now an accepted method of learning • Rigorous online science classes are not common • Good virtual labs are hard to make

  3. Background • Online labs would have many advantages • Students complete them on their own schedule • No chemical waste disposal • No supplies consumed • Less infrastructure for school • Educators do not know how much students learn in virtual labs • We need to find out

  4. Research Questions • How do virtual chemistry lab experiments help students • learn chemistry? • Appreciate and enjoy chemistry? • In what ways do virtual lab experiments not help students, compared to real world experiments? • Is it possible to design a virtual chemistry lab experiment which incorporates kinesthetic (body) motion?

  5. Kinect • Enhances capabilities of Xbox • Full body motion sensing • Facial recognition • Voice recognition • Sensor and SDK available for PC • Program using C++, C# and Visual Basic

  6. Example of Kinect in Education • Math (1:00 – 1:35)

  7. Preliminary Results and Goals • 2012 results: • students developed physics engine to model movement and physical behavior of objects • Gravity • Momentum • 2013 goals: • Create objects that the user manipulates • Include chemical behavior of objects

  8. Other goals • Kinect collects user data in an online database • Instructor can review student performance and results • Include voice recognition for commands • Increases options for performing different tasks • Makes experiment available to physically disabled • Include facial recognition • Instructors verifies identity of student performing experiment
