Avantis Launches First Educational Virtual Reality Theme Park
Here at Avantis, we are always looking to create unique, fully immersive, and engaging ways for students to learn. Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of Avanti’s World, the first educational virtual reality theme park, free to all existing ClassVR users until June 30th 2021.
The First Ever Educational Virtual Reality Theme Park
Prior to remote learning, our ClassVR headsets were consistently being used by over a million students to deliver fully immersive and engaging lessons using virtual reality. However, as students continue to be in and out of the classroom, they aren’t able to access the headsets as they normally would, identifying a need for schools to be able to deliver this content remotely.
To do this, we launched Avanti’s World; the world’s first virtual reality theme park, designed to deliver engaging VR lessons to any device with an internet connection.
What is Avanti's World?
Avanti’s World is a revolutionary way for students to explore hundreds of virtual reality educational experiences, all in one thrilling theme park. The first three lands are open to ClassVR users to explore, covering:
Each virtual land provides various zones and learning scenes for students to explore independently, as a group, or in a teacher-controlled environment through the ClassVR Portal. Every scene can also be explored in a web browser, through a ClassVR headset or even on a mobile device.
Alongside the exciting content in each virtual land, Avanti’s World Online includes educational resources such as detailed subject information, activities and quizzes to give purpose to student exploration. Avanti’s World Online also provides teachers with comprehensive reporting and assessment tools to easily monitor student progress and achievement to get the most out of every lesson.
Keep Students Engaged in a Remote Learning Environment
For many students across the world, there has been a dramatic shift in learning from home. Before the pandemic, every student would learn from home to complete their homework. However, today, many students find themselves learning from home either part-time or full-time throughout the school week. With the risk of learning loss for many students, research shows it’s important to create fun and engaging lessons to limit the long-term impact on students’ outcomes – and that’s exactly what we’ve done with Avanti’s World.
