The goal of this thesis is to realize a number of Mixed Reality modules for the Virtual Learning Environment Moodle using the emerging WebXR standard. An important part of this process is the conceptual design of the different learning modules to provide meaningful ways how learning material can be presented using Virtual Learning Environments. Apart from this, it should be investigated how the modules can be integrated into Moodle on a technical level. An additional focus should be laid on creating the necessary documentation and tools that streamline the setup workflow for lecturers.
