VR in Education

There’s so much talk about Virtual Reality & Interactive 360° content as powerful tools for educators, however getting started can be daunting with lots to learn, do and buy; sometimes the content available or created is not that relevant for teaching needs.

At VRTY, we want to change that!

We believe Virtual Reality & Interactive 360° content should be accessible to everyone and every classroom across the world. That’s why we’ve created an easy-to-use platform that can support teachers, students and businesses to EXPERIENCE, BUILD and/or CREATE their own curriculum-aligned projects.

If you’re a school, university, VET company, or responsible for corporate, medical, or social education and you are interested in using Virtual Reality & Interactive 360° content then please reach out to us. We also provide professional learning and development coursework to help get you going and creating educational content that can be used and shared across the world.

Why VR in Education?

Using VR in Education has the potential to:

✔️ Increase student engagement
✔️ Provide authentic experiences to impact student identity
✔️ Provide opportunities for students to gain new perspectives and empathy
✔️ Facilitate constructivist learning and Higher Order Thinking skills as a tool for creativity.

How it works?

  1.  All our projects are created via the cloud (web VR environment), so all you need is a computer and internet access.
  2.  Define your learning requirements and outcomes aligned with the curriculum or a learning area.
  3.  Determine your storyboard: will it be a linear narrative or branching narrative?
  4.  Create and upload assets to VRTY platform or choose from the many assets in the Learning Library.
  5.  Build your project with interactive markers, media content and voice.
  6.  Publish your project to the cloud, webpage or to your VRTY Streamer Box for viewing.
  7.  View the project in 360º on mobile, tablet, or computer. Or if you have a mobile VR headset, you can view it on your smartphone in virtual reality.
  8.  Analyse your project data in the Analytics tab.
