Abstract

We describe a 3D graphical interaction tool called an amplification widget that allows a user to control the position or orientation of an object at multiple scales. Fine and coarse adjustments are available within a single tool which gives visual feedback to indicate the level of resolution being applied. Amplification widgets have been included in instructional modules of The Optics Project, designed to supplement undergraduate physics courses. The user evaluation is being developed by the Institute of the Mid-South Educational Research Association under the sponsorship of a 2-year grant from the National Science Foundation.Nous décrivons un outil graphique de l'interaction 3D q'on appele un "widget d'amplification" qui permet à un utilisateur de contrôler la position ou l'orientation d'un objet aux échelles divers. Les réglages fins et approchés sont disponibles dans un outil simple qui donne le feedback visuel pour indiquer le niveau de la résolution étant appliquée. Des widgets d'amplification ont été inclus dans des modules d'instruction de The Optics Project, conçus pour compléter des cours de physique. L'évaluation d'utilisateur est développée par l'Institute of the Mid-South Educational Research Association sous le patronage du National Science Foundation.
