In this paper, we investigate the effectiveness of using virtual environments for memorization tasks in the context of learning activities. Our approach relies on the Method of Loci. To that purpose, we conducted an experiment comparing egocentric and allocentric representations and incorporating a navigation task. Our results show that an egocentric frame of reference offers the best spatial cues to help memorizing lists of items.
