HTC Vive in Education

Though I have been exploring the potential of virtual reality since getting my first cardboard style headset in 2014, it was in January 2017 when I got the HTC Vive that I really became excited about the future of VR in education. The Vive offers fully immersive, room scale VR that truly transports you to other worlds and spaces. It is the platform I am using to deliver CPD inside VR and is, in my opinion, the single best VR system currently available. Recent partnerships with Google and Apple highlight the importance of the Vive in the development of virtual reality and VR in education.

This section of the site is dedicated to the educational content and experiences that are available on the HTC Vive.
