With the advent of virtual reality (VR) technology, education and learning applications are able to leverage the fully immersive medium to create more hands-on, sophisticated, and engaging interactions. Alongside efforts to build virtual learning environments, note-taking can be reimagined in a virtual space where visual and auditory experiences can be captured and re-experienced. We classify phases as well as affordances of note-taking enabled self-regulated learning to be content capture, review, and modification. We present a first-principles analysis to identify design requirements for virtual note-taking that satisfy the three key functions of note-taking. We will discuss our approach to overcoming technical and design challenges as I detail the implementation of a standalone note-taking module, MemoryTree.
