Abstract

The purpose of the study reported in this paper was to investigate the effect of two forms of presenting verbal information (co-located and non co-located) on learning and retention of knowledge in a desktop virtual environment. Co-located information refers to the spatial relationship between linguistic information (text and sound) and virtual reality objects. The effects of co-located information were assessed via post and retention measures of knowledge of factual information in the virtual environment is designed for safety training in chemistry laboratory. Results indicate a tendency for co-located information to produce improved retention of declarative knowledge.
