Speech Title: Structure Oriented Evaluation (SURE) model for e-learning

Abstract: Each complex process involves many different groups with specific tasks and roles. To evaluate such a process it should be possible to include into evaluation the expectations and interests of all involved groups. Moreover, the evaluation method has to be able to take reference to the logical structure of total goal of complex process. Finally, the corresponding evaluation principles and their score calculation rules should be consistent with the calculation rules of general measure theory which forms the proven scientific basis for measurements in geometrical context or the evaluation of probabilities in probability and statistics, for instants. This is realized by the structure oriented evaluation model (SURE model) developed here. The model consists of eight steps which form the methodical concept for a structure oriented evaluation.

Speech Title: Future Education: The Roles of Metaverse Education to Enhance Immersive Learning

Future schools are metaverse smart. The Metaverse is the post-reality universe, a perpetual and persistent multiuser environment merging physical reality with digital immersion. It is based on the convergence of meta technologies that enable multisensory interactions with virtual environments, digital objects and avatars such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). Hence, the Metaverse is an interconnected web of social, networked immersive environments in dynamic multiuser platforms. It enables seamless embodied users’ communication in real-time and virtual interactions with digital artifacts. It provides an immersive experience based on mixed reality (AR + VR) that creates a mirror image of the real world; stimulates dynamic interactions, and triggers multi-modal sensory to experience meaningful learning. The purpose of this presentation is to visualize future education and to decipher the roles of Metaverse education to enhance immersive learning. In creating smart metaverse schools, digital eco-system must be in place. In metaverse pedagogy, the teachers could customise their teaching in their own way − from creating metaverse courseware to simulating sport activities. Finally, the challenges of metaverse education will be discussed.
