iLRN Virtual Adventures

iLRN seeks Guides to host Virtual Adventure tours of 50 minutes in duration to various social and collaborative XR/immersive environments and platforms.

Let's Go on iLRN Adventures!

Guide them into your virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, or other XR/immersive experience – or one that you know well! Lead iLRN members into these spaces, co-discovering and video-documenting the learning potential and engagements you found there for sharing with the wider community!

Proposals are being sought for prospective Guided Virtual Adventure tour offerings on Monday, May 30th & 31st, 2022. Tour destinations may be:

* a third-party XR/immersive platform with which you are familiar (e.g., Altspace, Mozilla Hubs, Minecraft, World of Warcraft, Somnium Space, OrbusVR, Second Life);

* a specific virtual environment that you, your institution/organization, or someone else has developed within a third-party platform;

* a platform that you or your institution/organization has developed and/or specific environments within that platform.


Selection Criteria and Requirements 

  1. Preference will be given to proposals that involve environments/platforms that are freely and openly accessible. iLRN also reserves the right to place limits on the number of tours of platforms/environments of a certain type or that address a particular target audience/application vertical.
  2. Where possible, it is strongly recommended that multiple offerings of the tour are made available so as to cater for potential people in different time zones.
  3. Guided Virtual Adventures are expected to produce, in the course of conducting the adventure, a video recording of the immersive/XR experience through which educators and others in the iLRN community might gain a sense of what the XR space is and how it might be useful for learning, teaching, and/or assessment. We have student interns and iLRN staff who may help with this!
  4. Guided Virtual Adventures are intended to be social activities. As such, platforms and environments to be toured must either support interaction among multiple users or make use of the iLRN Discord voice channel simultaneously. Participants must be afforded opportunities for interaction and dialogue. Product demos or workshops/tutorials in which participants either passively “sit and watch” or undertake individual activities in isolation of one another are not suitable for the Guided Virtual Adventures program.



Fees/Charges

Nonprofit organizations and educational institutions may offer their Guided Virtual Adventures, if approved, at no cost to them. Companies wishing to offer Guided Virtual Adventure tours involving their commercial products and services may submit proposals for consideration, but may be asked to contribute a modest fee commensurate with the size of their companies that will help support iLRN’s nonprofit mission.

Participants in Guided Virtual Adventure tours will not be charged any fees, but in order to participate must give their consent to having their video and audio activity during the tour recorded.
