The eXtended Reality Learning Hub at Southern Illinois University is a transdisciplinary project created by a collaborative team of educators and researchers. We combine place-based archaeological, historical, and scientific evidence, and the use of mobile technologies to expose, contextualize and investigate relevant social issues, and scientific themes. Our central aim is to engage learners through multi-dimensional experiences based on our local and international research projects. Our XR Learning Hub is at the forefront of educational innovation providing materials that help students find their place in the world using innovative augmented, virtual, and mixed reality tools on the go or in classroom settings.
