This is the abstract of the workshop:

In the last few years there has been a steady release of XR-based tools to enhance the learning experience. Until now the focus of researchers has been on the creation of content, but there is currently a lack of tools facilitating the creation of XR experiences for education. The objective of this workshop is to present the work fulfilled in the H2020 ARETE project[1] and to stimulate the discussion around what has been done and what is still left to do to enable researchers and enterprises to easily create XR experiences.
