MediaGrid.org is attempting to push forwards the cause of using both immersive and non-immersive interactive virtual environments for educational purposes.

They have launched an open call to educators, students and professionals who have experience using either virtual learning environments or video game technologies. They do not consider the two to be the same, but they also do not consider video games as video games. Instead they treat all as potential codebases ? extensible platforms from which to build educational systems.
Individuals and organizations can visit ImmersiveEducation.org to select the next-generation Immersive Education platform, contribute to best practices, and establish standards for virtual learning environments and game-based learning platforms.
