Abstract

A widespread adoption of Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality (VR/AR/MR), collectively referred to as Extended Reality (XR), has become a tangible possibility to revolutionize educational and training scenarios by offering immersive, interactive experiences. In this paper we present INTERACT, an authoring tool for creating advanced 3D physics-based Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) by individual developers or small-scale development teams. INTERACT is based on a cutting edge physics engine allowing realistic interactions such as collision detection and ergonomic evaluations. We demonstrate the benefits of INTERACT by developing a set of training scenarios for a use case of a Laser cutting machine. The use case illustrates the numerous possibilities such as creating interaction with objects, ease of configuring a scenario and how to design the visual effects to the machine.
