Abstract: Immersive Learning Environments (ILE) has been applied in many learning disciplines as a tool for providing a virtual interactive learning environment. With the advantages of ILE that could provide a playful and active learning experience in the learning processes, the ILE has been considered as another effective learning methodology using in learning processes together with the ubiquitous learning that provides the ease of access to the learners and encourage with self-learning management. This paper reviewed the ILE related 75 studies which were collected from the web of Science database, then discovered the insights of the collected studies about the application of the ILE in various learning disciplines. The insights of integrating the adaptive learning experience toward the collected studies are discovered to present the ideas of ILE application with adaptive learning experience toward various learning disciplines. The review of ILE studies may provide the benefits for the education researchers by finding the technology used in the ILE studies, finding the ideas for integrating adaptive learning with ILE, and discovering new perspectives and ideas for studying and researching in the learning context.
