dc.description.abstractThe Giant Walkthrough Gut is an immersive 3D computer model that utilizes virtual reality (VR) technology to fully explore and learn about the digestive system. The Giant Walkthrough Gut was developed using Unreal Engine by Epic Games, allowing for two different versions of visualization: a video and an exploratory program designed for both VR and desktop monitors. Traditionally, human anatomy and body systems have been taught with the use of 2D illustrations, text, and verbal instruction. Though spatial and auditory learners benefit from this convention, there can be a disconnect to the material for those who are kinesthetic learners. By providing a game-like experience, the Giant Walkthrough Gut has elements that can simplify the complex processes of the digestive system, having the potential to be a powerful and comprehensive tool that could supersede existing teaching methods.en_US
