Abstract

One of the most challenging tasks in Extended Reality based environments is the creation of realistic, interactive and attractive simulation with personalised content, without overlooking the main purpose of the system, which, in our case, is education. This paper introduces the XRLabs platform, which is an Extended Reality platform to assist in the training of students in all educational levels, focusing on the use of simulation for wet laboratories. Within this framework, the proposed systems are based on cutting-edge Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality (Extended Reality) technologies. We adopted gamification methods and simulation to enhance the conventional educational practices in laboratories. The highly interactive platform will allow students to enjoy sustainable edutainment experiences, especially in distance/online learning contexts for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
