Abstract: We present a multi-modal virtual reality broadcasting system to support science education. This system is based on a web platform using Adobe Flash and enables users to explore Google Earth using the Nintendo Wii devices. The Google maps Flash API was used to control the user’s avatar. The Wii Remote was used for zooming and steering and the Wii Balance Board was used for walking. We tested operation workload for 9 different threshold angle combinations. We found a most low workload threshold angle combination of 45◦ (for zooming out) /-15◦ (for zooming in) and of 30◦ (for steering right) /-30◦ (for steering left). Moreover, we found overshoot range during actual operation.
