We are pleased to announce as part of our strategic partnership with Avantis to accelerate Virtual and Augmented Reality learning across nearly 3,000 schools in the UK, that all of our Award winning Inspyro VR and AR content is now live on the ClassVR LGfL portal.
The Virtual reality experiences available range from the trenches of World War 1, to a sand encrusted Egyptian tomb to a snow-covered barracks on Hadrian’s Wall, all of our Virtual reality and Augmented reality content has been remastered by Inspyro to deliver a smooth experience using the Class VR headsets.
Hannah Davis, Head of Educational services at Avantis share her excitement about the partenship “We’re excited to make Inspyro apps available to all our schools in the LGfL Community. The ActiveLens apps help place history in context, and the range of immersive VR experiences add an interactive dimension. Making them available via ClassVR Portal has made it so easy for LGfL schools to launch specific apps and manage these fantastic resources in the classroom.
Controls within the application are very easy to master – you can walk around the VR experiences by clicking the select button on the left-hand side of the headset and interact with objects by looking at them until the loading circle fills up. To exit the application, you will need to use the ‘head shake’ gesture, rather than the back button.
The ActiveLens AR worksheets will be needed to use the AR tracks; just look at the pages and watch the source materials come alive!
Phil Birchinall , Managing Director of Inspyro talks about the latest update: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have our content available on ClassVR through the LGFL portal. There is no doubt that the combination of their leading headset with classroom management system delivering the LGfL / Inspyro resources is a step change in how schools access and use VR and AR content. We’re really looking forward to seeing how schools will use and adapt the resources for themselves.”
