The second part of Assembled 2018 includes five studies demonstrating rigor over a vast variety of themes tethered to Virtual World use. Studying VR/AR technologies use & development, examining online storytelling forum threads in WoW, analyzing Africans’ representation in video games, investigating business and English classes’ use of Multiplayer-Online Games, and testing the use of a mixed reality environment with undergraduate special education students. This issue has been crafted to meet the expectations of researchers and practitioners.
