The maturity of 5G and artificial intelligence has promoted the XRED (X Reality in Education)'s application and implementation. XRED involves the application of X Reality (i.e., augmented reality, virtual reality, or mixed reality) technologies in the process of instruction and learning. Learning assisted by XR technologies can facilitate students' understanding of spatial structure and function, support their learning of language associations, contribute to long-term memory retention, improve physical task performance, enhance motivation, engagement, and learning outcomes, and promote the development of problem-solving abilities. In this study, we provide a general understanding of XRED by illustrating its development concerning funding support, publication venues, software tools, and research topics with the expectation of promoting its future advance and application. We also highlight the importance and necessity of launching the XRED-focused Elsevier journal: Computers & Education: X Reality. Copyright © 2022 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier Ltd.
