Call For Papers


Education always plays a vital role in the development of our society.
Along with the wave of modern technology, education embraced computer-aided
learning, e-learning and, now, intelligent learning. Among intelligent
learning techniques, Virtual Reality (VR) technology brings about
unprecedented educational experience and shows great potential value in
educational areas. It brings such pedagogical advances as smart classrooms,
intelligent campuses, immersive museums, affective learning, mobile
learning, intelligent learning clouds and personalized VR tutors to
revolutionize current learning practices. Using VR, the effectiveness and
attractiveness of education have been enhanced and the way people acquire,
comprehend and interact with knowledge is changing. Moreover, with recent
advancements of VR technology, high-quality low cost displays and input
devices, such as the Oculus Rift and the STEM Tracking System, have brought
us to a turning point where VR can finally leave the research lab and reach
the classroom with unprecedented quality at an affordable cost.

Hence there is an urgent need for a special issue that acts as a forum for
researchers and practitioners to pool knowledge together and to advance the
science and art of VR educational practice, making it more efficient,
cost-effective, and fun.
