Abstract

In the context of informatization, there is an urgent need for reform in the teaching methods of ideological and political education in universities. This research explores the innovative application of virtual simulation technology in ideological and political courses by creating immersive environments such as virtual societies and historical scenes, facilitating experiential learning in ideological and political studies. The system, developed based on the Unity engine, offers interactive freedom and multi-angle observation features. Evaluation results indicate that 83% of students provided positive usability feedback. Compared to traditional teaching methods, this platform significantly triggered positive emotions, enhanced ideological cognition, and increased the behavior transformation rate by 14%. EEG signal analysis of students also confirmed their increased tendency to engage in active thinking. This study validates the significant role of virtual simulation technology in driving and deepening the transformation of ideological and political education in universities, providing valuable insights for the future development of immersive and open ideological and political classrooms. Subsequent efforts will continue to enrich course content and interactive formats, as well as expand the application scale.
