Abstract

Presently, Internet or Intranet delivered curriculum does not simulate the experience of touching and manipulating objects or environments (referred to as haptics). This restricts the number of subjects that can be effectively taught, and the types of students who can access the curriculum. This paper describes a project that will develop software applications that make it possible to deliver curriculum that can be touched, manipulated and heard over the Internet or an Intranet. Both the necessary software tools and exemplary curriculum modules will be developed. Developments will be based upon the 3D ISO standard VRML, and a Haptic API developed by Haptics Technology Inc.
