Direct manipulation is better than passive viewing for learning anatomy in a three-dimensional virtual reality environment
TLDR
We explore the role that direct manipulation plays in three-dimensional virtual reality systems by comparing participants who directly manipulate an anatomical structure in a 3-D VR program to those who only view the structure in the same program. Expand
