2020 Immersive and Engaging Educational Experiences (IEEEXP) – Fifth Special Track on Immersive and Engaging Educational Experiences

This track aims for content at the intersection of interactive digital experiences (most notably video games), learning and engagement, particularly through immersion. More and more virtual reality platforms, virtual world environments, augmented/alternate/mixed reality applications, game​-based experiences, and various forms of interactive media are designed to create engaging and immersive experiences with educational features. 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 “entertainment with purpose” designs are discussed to create different forms of engagement. We invite scholars to discuss how we can design, develop, and analyze educational environments to be 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
