About this product
- DescriptionThis book examines the issues involved in creating virtual environments that promote and disseminate historical learning and heritage. It achieves this through a close study of the interactive design principles at work behind both real and virtual places.
- Author BiographyErik is Associate Professor at Auckland School of Design, Massey University, and a member of IGDA (International Game Developers Association), DiGRA, and ICIP (ICOMOS International Committee on Interpretation and Presentation of Cultural Heritage Sites). He graduated in architecture, philosophy, and engineering (Geomatics). His doctoral thesis 'Evaluating Cultural Learning in Virtual Environments' (sponsored by an Australian Research Council industry grant) involved the design and evaluation of online virtual environments; the industry partner was Lonely Planet.

He has taught game design, interaction design, user experience design, architectural design, digital media and CAD. He is now the Associate Professor, Research and Postgraduate Director, School of Design, College of Creative Arts, Massey University, New Zealand. His research areas include: game design, virtual heritage (digital and online interpretations of culture), architectural visualization, serious gaming (using game engines to teach archaeology), innovative peripherals and physical computing (tangible computing, biofeedback, surround displays), interactive narrative, and evaluation techniques for the user experience of interactive spatial media.
