Abstract

3D visualization in virtual space simultaneously provides depth information with 2D information visualization ability. Since, web-based e-learning system has become popular alternative framework for improving learning performance and increasing convenience and flexibility to learners. Integrating a 3D medical image visualization into e-learning system aims to accomplish the needs of biomedical engineering education where learners can navigate, browsing, and interact with 3D models of reconstructed medical images. In this paper, we present the usability evaluation results of our web-based 3D medical image visualization comparing with conventional 2D visualization for web-based learning. The experimental results show that 3D visualization method improves learners' education performance with tasks involving 2D information.
