This work has assumed that it is possible to view big data in a mobile virtual immersive environment satisfactorily. Thus, it aimed to propose a visual model...
Taxonomy of VR Platforms
Genesis first, then classification; this is the design pattern for new productions. After seeing current efforts, we realize that writers are struggling to create a virtual reality platform taxonomy and are not reaching a satisfying conclusion. Thus, we present a taxonomy that suits our own priorities of accessibility, immersion,...

These are opportunities for information and interaction well above our processing abilities, and often interrupt our activity (as you can see in the introduction to the chapter 3 of...
WebVR Solar System
Making a website that's a virtual reality experience is getting now lots of attention. Many tools out there to help create such WebVR experiences.

Right before the Educators in VR 2020 International Summit, we had that feeling. We write that not to cast doubt on this organization. Conversely, we want...
iLRN 2020 VR Conference Production Design
Remember that conference where there were respected speakers from immersive learning research and industry, vetted scientific and practitioner research presented in the flipped model, guided adventures as field trips…and hosted in at least 3 virtual platforms (VirBELA FrameVR AltspaceVR)?We do! Heather and Tiago eagerly put our hands to the...
