Author(s): Phatcharin Haesakul

This research aims to study and analyze confirmatory factors and guidelines for developing educational personnel on Virtual Reality (VR) technology.

Methodology: The sample group consisted of 210 participants of the Pioneer Project for "Developing Learning Center and Virtual Reality (VR) Curriculum for Students" of the Broadcasting and Telecommunications Research and Development Fund for the Public Interest (BTFP) obtained by using purposive sampling. The research tool was a 5-rating scale questionnaire, i.e., highest level, high level, moderate level, low level, and lowest level, divided into 3 dimensions including knowledge, skills, and attributes. The statistics used for analyzing the data were frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and index of item objective congruence (IOC) of model and empirical data through confirmatory factor analysis.

Findings: (1)Participants had opinions towards the guidelines for developing potential of educational personnel on Virtual Reality (VR) technology in overview and in all dimensions (including knowledge, skills, and attributes) in high level. (2). Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) of second-order confirmatory factor analysis of potential development of educational personnel on Virtual Reality (VR) technology consisted of 20 indicators covering 3 factors including 6 indicators on knowledge, 7 indicators on skills, and 7 indicators on attributes. The model was consistent with empirical data with priority of factors ordered in descending order, i.e., skills, attributes, and knowledge (?2=194.687, df=167, p=0.070, ?2/df =1.166, GFI=0.963, AGFI=0.953, RMSEA=0.018).
