About

Founded in 2014, the Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that connects educators, developers, and researchers to work together on developing the scientific, technical, and applied potential of immersive learning. New and emerging virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and other related technologies (collectively known as “XR”) present new opportunities for tackling some of the world’s most capacious and pressing societal, environmental, and economic problems; iLRN seeks to foster a global, interdisciplinary community of scholarship and practice, founded on the principles of open science and open design, aimed at leveraging these opportunities for the good of our planet and its inhabitants.

Central to iLRN’s mission and goals is developing and showcasing a rigorous evidence base of “what works” for facilitating effective and engaging experiences using XR and immersive technologies across the full span of learning—from K-12 through higher education to work-based, informal, and lifelong learning contexts. By offering resources, tools, and forums for experts to meet, share, and collaborate as well as by undertaking its own, strategically targeted research efforts, independently and in partnership with other key organizations, iLRN strives to assist and promote the development of knowledge, skills, principles, and practices throughout the multitude of enterprises where the unique affordances of the technology may be powerfully harnessed to support and catalyze human learning and achievement.
