This project aimed to analyze the implementation of extended realities to teach construction management at the university level. Extended realities in this context are referring to augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR); these are the two for which funding was received by Cavrnus. The foundation for this project started with the pre-existing lesson for the California Polytechnic State University’s (Cal Poly) residential construction class. The original lesson was constructed with the students learning the wood framing of a house by reading. While this is a suitable learning method for some it is not the best for all. This project introduces VR and AR into the learning environment bringing kinesthetic and visual learning into the scenario. The theory is by providing a 3D experience one can improve the amount of information retained. With the information gathered, it is determined that VR and AR could be used more in the near future and a good resource to teach. However, there are some software issues that need to be worked on before it becomes available for teaching purposes.
