This project aims to design and evaluate a storytelling system using desktop virtual-reality(VR). The storytelling system entitled “Survival Skills in Forest” was designed to educate children on survival skills in a forest. It was designed based on the instructional design theoretical framework for VR-based learning environment. Generally, the storytelling system incorporates an integrative goal, problems and support tools to facilitate learning during the storytelling process as well as applying various design principles for effective presentation of information. The usability of the storytelling system was evaluated using cooperation evaluation technique. In general, the results of the cooperative evaluation showed that the storytelling system can be used without much difficulty. Exposing children to the real environment of a forest maybe dangerous, therefore by presenting the environment of forest in the form of virtual environment it is hope that children can effectively explore the virtual forest and interact with it. Indeed, this project provides an innovative way to delivering a story by using desktop VR.
