Special issue on recent advances in virtual & augmented reality for education

Published 26 April, 2022


Virtual and augmented reality (VR & AR) have reshaped people’s perceptions by providing simulated and enhanced environments where objects are interactive and responsive. Indeed, these technologies have revolutionised education and learning, making them  interesting, easy and informative.  They encourage students to be more participative and attentive in the classroom and have transformed the learning process from theoretical to experimental. They also enable simulated experiments, with students interacting with components via an interface.

We believe that much can be learned from investigating the shared, and especially the unique elements of AR and VR.  For this special issue, we invite articles that discuss a particular research aspect for AR and VR in depth. We are particularly interested in articles that address several aspects in a multidisciplinary manner.

Topics of interest:

The topics relevant to this special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Virtual and augmented reality: different perspectives of the users
  • Applications of virtual and augmented reality
  • Computer-mediated reality
  • The role of artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality in education and othersectors
  • The rise and fall of virtual reality
  • Collaborative augmented reality in education
  • Challenges of virtual and augmented reality
  • Stereo-augmented reality
  • The impact of virtual and augmented reality systems
  • The augmented reality authoring tool
