Student and Faculty Engagement in 3D Virtual Learning Environments

This paper applies a digitized Human Resource Development (dHRD) Framework Model to student/faculty engagement in 3D virtual learning environments (3D VLEs). We discuss dynamic learning and leadership in context of the Theory of Gamification and psychological theories to explain avatar-mediated learning in 3D VLEs, including advancing technologies, legalities, and ethics.
