Overview

Immersive and engaging experiences are powerful teaching tools and allow innovative forms of learning. More and more virtual reality platforms, virtual world environments and game-based experiences are designed for the classroom. This can be a traditional classroom, or also a virtual and remote classroom setting.

In this special track we discuss how we can design, develop, and analyze educational environments to be immersive and engaging. The track does not only cover research on design, development, and analysis of such environments, we also invite submission describing non-traditional traditional design practice and development approaches to create different engaging experiences.

Topics

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Learning: learning in immersive environments, virtual realities, virtual worlds, and games
Design: design techniques, practices, methods
Analysis: frameworks, exploration studies, user studies
Technology: platforms, devices, engines, environments, graphics, navigation, interactions, user analysis, data analysis, procedural content generation, artificial intelligence
Non-traditional, non-classroom and non-curricular learning environments
Development approaches to create different engaging experiences
