Virtual Reality provides new innovative solutions to tackle major challenges in education.
An economic challenge for educational institutions and society is for instance that institutions are facing economic pressure as they are looking to increase learning outcomes and motivation by incorporating new digital and interactive technologies to their portfolio of education materials. For instance, the requirement to invest in high cost laboratory equipment is a prohibiting factor to education institutions’ continued growth and their ability to reduce the gap between academic studies and career development. A large number of institutions are removing laboratory experiments when faced with budget limitations, and this has a severe impact on student skill development, and leads to graduates lacking essential skills for work in their intended industries.
This challenge is addressed with innovative Virtual Reality solutions by delivering high quality laboratory simulations to students, shown to work as intended by 3rd party researchers (Bonde et al. Nature Biotechnology, 2014). There is a vast untapped market potential in offering solutions that provides a significant financial return on investment while increasing education quality, which can be achieved through innovative and disruptive use of technology, in nearly any educational topic.
We present a new platform, allowing anyone to easily build engaging VR education content.
