The Immersive Training Platform includes a recommendation tool to support the adoption of immersive environments in education and training. Instructors and learning designers are presented with a questionnaire to identify their instructional context, based on resource constraints, learner’s characteristics, and learning objectives. From the identified context, a set of alternatives for educational use of immersive environments are provided. With alternatives and examples for various learning methodologies, instructors and learning designers can mobilize them according to their needs for the training action.
The recommendation tool identifies the instructional context within the conceptual space of immersion theory, which is then employed to rank the educational uses by proximity. These uses are grounded in scientific literature and resulted from a multi-year survey of panoramic studies of immersive learning research (Beck et al., 2020).
