“VR technology has the power to transform the traditional classroom experience and enables the educators of today to prepare their students to join the workforce of tomorrow. The ‘VR Horizons’ education programme will help lower the biggest barriers to adoption by providing an affordable, accessible, classroom-friendly solution that provides teachers and students with the tools to integrate 360 content creation into the curriculum” said Oren Zvulun, VP Sales at HumanEyes.

Many leading educational institutions across the globe are using the Vuze VR Camera to more effectively teach the principles of virtual reality and its power to create immersive experiences. Five-time Emmy award-winning Professor Kathleen Johnson at Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication selected the Vuze VR Camera for its affordability and ease-of-use and has expanded the programme to include narrative and commercial storytelling.
Kathleen Johnson, Professor at Gaylord College said: “I believe VR storytelling has made our students better journalists, as they must be aware of the entire 360-degree view around them, versus what only fits in the frame, which can add different elements to a story that may not have been present before.”
