Abstract: It is vitally important that a person chooses a professional field which they their capabilities are strong in and are content. The problem with traditional research and open days is that most students are given a great deal of information which ends up overwhelming them and they end up not sure of what they want to do. They may choose a specialization they think would be suitable for them, only to find out later in life that the field they chose is not a field that they are comfortable with. To avoid this for Multimedia Development students, a Virtual Reality simulation would be designed and developed to visually demonstrate the key concepts of Multimedia to improve on the current methods that are used to inform people about the importance of Multimedia concepts and how they are integrated together to develop interactive applications that solve problems while providing a sense of entertainment. We then present the findings on how the students interacted with the application and their overall experience.
