<br>
In this sense, impact does not merely relate to measuring dissemination activity, e.g., how many people read a book, or visited an exhibition in an art gallery, or followed your latest research findings on social media. Rather, it relates to what measurable influence the research has had on its beneficiaries as a result of activities in such a way that a discernible ‘step-change’ is evident.<br>
<br>
In order to address these issues of increasing importance and relevance in virtual and immersive environments, this special edition of The Journal of Virtual Worlds Research brings together four articles to consider these questions in the specific field of education. </p>
