Volume 11, Number 3 (2018)

Issue Editors:
Kenneth Y. T. Lim, National Institute of Education, Singapore
Cátia Ferreira, Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Portugal

2019 marks the tenth anniversary of a landmark issue of the Journal of Virtual Worlds Research, which was themed on ‘Pedagogy.’ Issue No. 1 in Vol. 2 of the journal was the fruition of a vision of the late Leslie Jarmon. Dr. Jarmon was a pioneer academic in the use of virtual worlds and immersive environments for learning.

This issue aims to document both the present and emerging state-of-the-art, covering the adoption, design, enaction, scaling and translation of immersive and/or mixed-reality environments for learning, and in other contexts of education.

Original Call: CfP: Pedagogy – Taking Stock and Looking Forward

Jvwresearch.org is now JVWR.net

As part of the 2019 upgrade, we have moved the site to JVWR.net

The corresponding domain is still @jvwresearch.org

This symbolizes the re-emphasis on our community and network.
This is an ongoing process that includes many aspects. For now, the main site domain is jvwr.net 

Our backend publishing system remains the same.

Merry Holidays and Happy New Year!
