The increasing availability of immersive virtual reality (VR) systems offers new opportunities and challenges in teaching and learning with the sensory experience of sight, touch, and interaction. To enrich learning experience and student interest in learning, an effective instructional design is crucial in converting the real environment into the virtual world in immersive VR systems. Therefore, in this study, a framework for designing a CAVE-based immersive visualization system is presented. By investigating critical instructional design strategies, guidelines on content design and development in the immersive VR-based learning environment are emphasized in order to achieve the desirable learning outcomes. With the aim of developing students’ problem-solving and learning processes, a case study in air cargo logistics is discussed to demonstrate how to facilitate instructional design in an immersive VR system. It is expected that insights into interactive teaching and learning can be provided through the immersive VR system enhancement.
