A Study of 3D Stereo Vision System Effectiveness for Improving Visualization Skills


This study compared the effectiveness of a Head Mounted Display (HMD) and anaglyphic glasses on students’ learning of 3D designs. The two stereo display systems were used in an introductory design and graphics class. Data related to students’ subjective perceptions and their objective performance were collected and analyzed. Results of the study reveal that, subjectively, students perceived the HMD to be more effective for learning of 3D designs. However, the study also found that, objectively, students’ did not perform significantly better, when using the HMD.
