Immersion is believed to be a relevant factor in providing an effective training simulation. In this study we consider one influencing factor, the media used. We sought to test whether differences existed in perceived levels of immersion when using a single screen, three screen or a semi-cylindrical projection system. We were also interested in what role the level of perceived immersion played in learning. We also briefly consider the phenomenon of immersion and its measurement.
