Lesson Plan

Here you can download an example of an educational plan to use this serious game in your classes. It has been tested in the introduction to Computer Science subject in the Media Communication degree of the University of Burgos.
  • Pre-test
  • Master Class
  • Virtual Reality
  • Knowledge test


Pre-test serve to assess the previous knowledge of students.


Master Class

Theoretical contents that constituted this didactic unit on computer hardware


Knowledge Test

The test included different questions from the pre-test, because equal tests can affect the learning evaluation.


Features and results of the serious game

This design follows the idea that rather than better teaching of traditional knowledge, the real potential of VR is found in "learning by doing", which is usually very difficult to apply in traditional classes. These are some of the keys we have found when using the serious game with our students

Student satisfaction

the game in both its desktop and VR versions significantly improved student satisfaction compared with the traditional teaching method

Game usability

The students thought it was significantly easier to interact in VR than the desktop PC version con-trolled by keyboard and mouse.

Remembering information

Slightly worse results of the serious games groups than the traditional learning group in remembering information


The immersion helps students to extract applied knowledge for real life.

Visual recognition

Significantly better visual recognition than the group that received the traditional class


The VR group performed the exercise faster and made fewer errors than the students playing the same game on the desktop.
