Abstract: This paper explores the possibilities of using a Virtual Reality for cooperative idea generation and then attempts to assess the relationship between a student’s cooperation and the design process, learning experiences and the pedagogy employed by the teacher. The researchers based their research around the following questions:

  1. How could collaborative idea generation be incorporated within the VRE?
  2. How does this relate to teaching and learning within the lesson?
  3. How do communications during the lesson support students’ work?

Keywords: Idea generation; Virtual Reality Environment; multiple communication; cooperative idea generation; cooperative learning; user interface; remote observation, and screen captured videos.
