Abstract


The lack of student participation in the learning process results in the decrease of their learning interest and comprehension. In addition, in the interactive learning process, two-way communication takes place between instructors and learners. Teachers deliver learning material and learners provide responses to the learning material they receive. This can be realized by using a Multiplayer Virtual Reality to display the visualization of learning material. Virtual reality can be used to increase the effectiveness of delivering material with an immersive environment so students can develop intuition to perceive the abstract knowledge that is difficult for teachers to describe. The multiplayer system allows teacher-student interaction, which supports the ongoing learning activities in the virtual world. The test results show the mechanism of object interaction in a virtual environment is easy to use with 50% of respondents agreeing and 50% of respondents saying the interaction feels natural. Furthermore, solar system multiplayer virtual reality can be an interesting learning media with 50% of respondents strongly agree and this learning media is effective to be used in the delivery of solar and eclipse material in sixth-grade of elementary school with 67% of respondents expressing their agreement strongly.
