Design Guidelines for the Development of Motion Capture System for Elementary School Classroom Integration
MetadataShow full item record
Motion capture technology has revolutionized entertainment and gaming industries. Research has shown that the motion capture technology also has the potential to impact education and help kinesthetic learners. The goal of this thesis is to come up with the design guidelines for developing such a motion capture system for elementary school classroom integration. An exemplar system called the Digital Micro-Enactment (DiME) marker based system was used to study the feasibility of motion capture system in a classroom setting. A focus group was conducted with 4 elementary school teachers to understand the constraints of a classroom. The discussion was analyzed to formulate the design guidelines for the development of DiME markerless motion capture system. This system was compared against DiME marker based system in a user study with 6 elementary school teachers. Quantitative and qualitative data analysis indicated that DiME markerless system was preferred by the teachers over DiME marker based system. This thesis will benefit educators and researchers by providing the design guidelines for developing motion capture systems inside classrooms.
