New technologies like 360 virtual reality videos and 3D printing are creating philosophical shifts in approaches to teaching and learning in the classroom. However, most studies isolate new technology rather than study the benefits using them in combination. Multiple representations support a variety of learning activities especially when students are learning new concepts or complex ideas. This study explores the blending of a 360 video-case study with 3D printed haptic manipulations to enhance learning of ICT systems analysis and design. We hypothesize that the blending of both the virtual and physical can lead to improved learning motivation, engagement and enhance learning outcomes. The study follows a design-based research (DBR) methodology with this paper representing the second loop of the DBR approach focusing on both the usability and learning outcomes from a sample of 24 participants from an Australian University. The results of the study show positive impact on the measure of navigability and communication when compared to a traditional lesson leading to improved engagement and motivation among the learners.

|Other||The ASCILITE 2019 Conference is ASCILITE’s 36th International Conference of Innovation, Practice and|
Research in the Use of Educational Technologies in Tertiary Education. This year’s conference was hosted by the
Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), and held at the University’s campus, between 2 to 5 December
The theme of ASCILITE 2019 "Personalised Learning. Diverse Goals. One Heart." brings together the focus on
the learner's needs in the use of technology and sound pedagogical practices. It recognizes the diverse motivation
behind each learner in the design of curriculum and the common goal in contributing to the betterment of the
global society. Singapore, being the place for people of different ethnicity, culture and religion to pursue their
passion and dreams, personifies the idea of “Diverse Goals” but “One Heart”. This theme also coincides with the
educational aspiration of SUSS, and Singapore at large, that regardless of students’ goals, different backgrounds
or life stages, it aims to equip them with the real-world knowledge and practice-oriented skills to excel, both in
life and in their chosen career. Welcome to ASCILITE 2019 in the city state Singapore.
