Abstract: The paper focuses on the experiment of human computer interaction in an immersive and interactive 3D structure by students during their course. We want in this article examine the real effect of the New Technologies on the students and in particular how virtual reality could improve education, specifically in the ease of reception of knowledge. We study in particular the effects of the virtual reality (3D, vision headset, total immersion) on the long term memory of the students and the different form of communication that the specific type of media imposes. In our study, we compares the case of different form of courses from a traditional course (an oral media-based course/ a media-based course in PowerPoint without taking notes/ and with note taking) to a media-based course in virtual imagery (3D, vision headset, total immersion). We analyse the type of communication with the use by students of an immersive, interactive structure, giving the sensation of presence. Our experiment entails a 3D device in the setting of media-based, educational communication (Peraya, 1998; 2000) in scholarship.
