Virtual Reality has been used for training and education within the military, law enforcement and research labs for many years. Improvements in computer processing/graphics and a decline in cost has led to this technology now being accessible to a wider demographic of consumers. We are committed to changing the delivery method of education worldwide, by providing realistic simulations and learning experiences that are both educational and entertaining. Students are encouraged to take an active role in their learning, and schools can approach teaching from a new angle. This is also true for our educators – why should professionals and teaching staff miss out on all the boundaries that virtual reality can remove?
The education sector is in the process of widely adopting virtual reality for teaching and learning situations. The advantage of this is that it enables large groups of students to interact with each other as well as within a three dimensional environment. It is able to present complex data in an accessible way to students, which is both fun and easy to learn. Also, these students can interact with the objects in that environment in order to discover more about them.
With the development of an immersive virtual reality training classroom, C-Live is offering a safe environment to train education professionals working with both young people and with parents. C-Live is a powerful blend of artificial intelligence and virtual reality where educators practise their teaching strategies or rehearse new lessons with a configurable classroom of learners or adult avatars.
As we live in a technological society, it makes sense to implement virtual reality as one of several forms of technology in order to educate tomorrow’s technological elite. Education has moved on from books, pencils and pens to the use of interactive technologies to help impart knowledge and understanding to young people and their mentors.
