Title Designing VR for Cognitive Load Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 7/11/18 Description Cognitive Load theory looks at the burden on working memory that is felt by a learner during learning tasks. It was first outlined by John Sweller and there is a more detailed explanation here.
It is especially important in immersive contexts because in a VR experience your brain is potentially trying to process the visual environment, hear an audio track, understand the hardware controls, understand the aim of the learning experience, process the knowledge being provided and respond all at the same time. This means that it’s easy to miss key details (often the actual learning) in favour of all the noise around them.
