Overview

The Special Track on Immersive Medical Education at the iLRN 2019 Conference will focus on the use of Extended Reality (XR) which includes augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), augmented virtuality (AVR), virtual reality (VR) and related technologies for learning experiences that inspire and engage learners in immersive ways.
