Get students learning more naturally using all of their senses

Immersive Classroom gives students the opportunity to learn through sight, smell, touch and sound. Full sensory immersion helps them connect more naturally with the material they're studying, which increases engagement and deepens understanding.

Develop problem-solving skills and improve information retention

Figuring out solutions by actively engaging with content helps students to develop critical thinking skills.  Plus, hands-on learning in a stimulating environment or true-to-life scenario helps them to retain information better2 than passively listening or reading.

Explore topics and places where time and travel aren't barriers

Immersive Classroom lets teachers take students to places they might not usually get the chance to learn. Everywhere is accessible for everyone, with realistic themes across history, the globe and beyond. For example, those studying astronomy can study the planets in space, just as an astronaut would.

Create life-like work scenarios to support vocational students

Train the next generation of first responders, emergency services and more within a life-like interactive workplace simulation.
