Celestial Breeze is a dedicated application that aims to provide knowledge about the culture of different European countries. The design of the application is based on multimedia learning theories in an attempt to maximize the learning outcomes of the users. Emphasis is given in examining the effectiveness of Celestial Breeze as a tool of information dissemination in relation to the age and gender of the audience. We evaluated the application through a user study with 20 participants - half of whom were under aged- but all belong to Generation Y. The comparison of pre- and post- test results pinpoints the positive learning outcomes of Celestial Breeze on participants indicating in that way the potential of using immersive applications for cultural education.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/10993||Rights:||© Springer International Publishing AG, 2018||Type:||Conference Papers|
