Research Questions

What is the effect of XR upon three common academic tasks. Specifically, does XR enhance or improve the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of these three tasks, and in what ways?

1) Preparing to write an academic article

The ways in which these activities are undertaken given the constraints and affordances of the computer tools and environment currently used.

2) Editing review articles for an academic journal

The ways in which these activities can be undertaken in XR currently.

3) Assessing a graduate seminar paper; specifically

What is gained by expanding tools and environment to include XR, and what is not yet possible; the directions XR can go to respond to the needs of academic work.

These questions are addressed by the Use Cases.
