The Immersive Education Initiative, commonly referred to as Immersive Education (iED), is a non-profit international collaboration of universities, colleges, research institutes, museums, consortia and companies that work together to define and develop freely available open standards, best practices, platforms, and communities of support for virtual worlds, virtual reality, augmented reality, simulations and game-based learning and training systems. 

Thousands of faculty, researchers, staff, administrators and students are members of Immersive Education, who together service millions of students and learners worldwide.

Chapters support the rapid and continued growth of Immersive Education throughout the world and operate within the same charter that governs the Initiative itself. 

Immersive Education Chapters constitute the geographically distributed structure of Immersive Education through which regional and local members are supported and enriched. Chapters organize officially sanctioned Summits, Days, workshops, collaborations, seminars, lectures, forums, meetings, technical groups, technical work items, research, and related activities.

Every Immersive Education Chapter is organized and run by a Board of Governors (BoG) that liaise directly with the international Immersive Education Initiative, other Chapters, and related governing bodies to support the growth of Immersive Education around the world.

To learn more about chapters refer to the Immersive Education Chapters document (PDF format).
