"Creative & Innovative Education to Enhance the Quality of Life"

Special Track on XR & Immersive Learning Environments

The Special Track on XR & Immersive Environments for Learning at IEEE TALE 2019 will focus on the use of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and related technologies for creating environments and experiences that excite, inspire and engage learners in immersive ways. Of interest are reports of both research studies and applications covering the entire spectrum of immersive platform types, including desktop, mobile, wearable and room-based (e.g., CAVE). Authors and presenters are encouraged to think creatively in terms of how they might frame their work to accommodate different conceptions of and perspectives on immersion.
