Abstract

Although some other cognitive approaches in creativity have argued that creativity development happens only in disembodied minds, a creative learning environment plays an essential role in facilitating the creative thinking process of learners. This article studied the use of virtual reality and multi-user domains for higher creativity education, particularly with regard to creative thinking. It reports the establishment of a virtual environment, ‘Learners’ Café’, and an educational web blog for tertiary learners in Hong Kong. The importance of constructing a virtual community for hyper-learning is also explored in this article.
