How streams work

PROSPECTS FOR THE FUTURE

Immersive education encompasses many ways of providing students with immersive experiences in their learning activities, ranging from virtual worlds that provide alternate realities for learning to augmented realities that add new dimensions to the students' actual learning space. For online education, in particular, virtual reality experiences often provide ways of student learning about something that they cannot obtain in the real world. A clear example of this is the active learning experience activities discussed in the Vallance paper. We intend to secure papers about the use of virtual worlds and their use in online education in the continuing stream. Other topics will include augmented realities, technologies for increasing student access to immersive education, and examination of implementations in various disciplines (an example of an implementation in nursing/community health is provided in this issue in the Nursing Stream). From a practical viewpoint, we hope to be able to consider various products as well as cost and accessibility concerns, with a major focus on improvements in learning effectiveness through the use of immersion.

We would be interested in hearing from you if you have innovations that we should know about. Contact John.R.Bourne@gmail.com or dspicer@usmd.edu if you would like to discuss what you are doing in this area.
