ST1. Immersive and Engaging Educational Experiences


Immersive and engaging learning environments are powerful teaching tools and allow innovative forms of entertainment, learning, training, and other experiences. More and more virtual reality platforms, virtual world environments, augmented/alternate/mixed reality applications and game­-based experiences, and various forms of interactive media are designed to create engaging and immersive experiences in an educational setting. This can be a traditional classroom, a virtual and remote classroom setting or activities that further the educational agenda. In this track, various forms of interactive media, methods-based and “entertainment with purpose” are discussed to create different forms of engagement. In this special track we discuss how we can design, develop, and analyze educational environments to be both, immersive and engaging, while still learning outcome oriented. The track does not only cover research on design, development, and analysis of such environments, we also invite submission describing non­-traditional and traditional design practice and development approaches to create different engaging experiences.

List of Topics

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

Learning: learning in immersive environments, augmented realities, mixed realities, virtual realities, virtual worlds, and games
Design: design techniques, practices, methods (problem-based, storytelling, scenario-based, etc.)
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
