A three-Dimensional Model to Improve the Teaching Effect During COVID-19 Pandemic

Bin Zhao and Xia Jiang*

April 18, 2023


Virtual simulation experiment teaching can make up for the shortcomings of traditional physical experiments, but most of the current simulation software is two-dimensional, and the teaching effect is limited. This article uses Three.js3D technology, taking the "Saxon Bowl Sinking Experiment" as an example, and breaks through the plane constraints by constructing a three-dimensional model to achieve a three-dimensional, online, cross platform, real-time and interactive virtual simulation system. The system performs three-dimensional modeling of experimental equipment and processes, achieves three-dimensional simulation, and designs four types of experiments for users to explore the relationship between variables. Supported by virtual teachers, the system fully simulates the interactive scene between teachers and students offline. Video and voice add role switching, greatly increasing interest and observability. The application practice shows that the system can greatly improve the teaching effect during COVID-19 pandemic.
