Services

Educators in VR offers consulting, training, and production support for educators, learners, faculties, researchers, business, educational institutions, virtual apps, and organizations and associations. The Educators in VR team represents decades of teaching, training, and event production experience. Since 2018, Educators in VR has presented hundreds of virtual educational, business, and social events in virtual reality, including the record-breaking Educators in VR International Summit featuring 170 speakers in 150+ events across 5 virtual platforms over 6 24hr days.

The Educators in VR summit was an amazing community-driven effort to showcase what that could look like. I did a rough estimate and factoring in the travel time and CO2 estimates that would have been spent. This summit took about 9 thousand cars off the road for the week of the summit and saved attendees around 5 million miles of travel. So whether we’re combating a global outbreak, climate change or remote work – there’s a lot that AltspaceVR and other VR platforms can do to help.
Quote by Katie Law in “VR Takes The Stage As Conferences Cancel” by Charlie Finks on Forbes

Virtual events save money, time, defy geographic limitations, and are green events as their impact on the environment significantly reduces carbon emissions and pollution. People can meet any time of the day with no commute or travel plans in an immersive experience, feeling like they are “right there,” connecting, learning, and building strong relationships. VR events can happen in traditional meeting spaces, historical places, fantasy worlds, or just about anywhere you can or can’t imagine. Educators in VR works with clients to ensure a unique and engaging experience that is comfortable for all.

VR events happen in a variety of social and educational virtual platforms on mobile and tethered VR devices, as well as on Windows desktop computers in 2D, offering inclusive experiences for your students, teams, or audience.

Consulting

Alvin Wang Graylin of HTC Vive speaking in Engage at the 2020 Educators in VR International Summit.As leading experts in virtual events and conferences, Educators in VR is available for consulting and advising on your next virtual event, or if you are considering moving your event or classroom to virtual reality, or adding a virtual component.

While it may appear as easy as turning a real-world meeting into an online conference call, VR is an immersive experience proven to be an intimate and accessible way to connect online. According to Canadian entrepreneur and AR/VR/MR/XR Developer, Daniel Blair:

I’ve been to hundreds of conferences as an entrepreneur, but I’ve made stronger business connections and more meaningful relationships in a few months in social VR than any conference.

There are the normal speaker and audience logistics and management challenges in virtual reality, and the stress of booking event and lodging spaces goes away – a bit, but there are different challenges. In a real-world conference, attendees and speakers fly in from around the world to a single time zone. In virtual reality, people attend from any time zone. Everything needs to be scheduled in VR, including arrangements for social networking and exhibit hall access. Our research and experiences reveal that people want to attend virtual events in a flexible manner, and they tend to be fairly creative in process, and our experts will help you understand the audience journey through your virtual event to maximize attendance and access.

The Educators in VR Consultant Team will help you:

  • Structure your virtual event.
  • Advise on best practices.
  • Explore speaker and audience logistics.
  • Help review and evaluate virtual social, event, and educational platforms.
  • Assist with event schedule and time zone management.
  • Offer recommendations on:
    • Marketing virtual events and conferences.
    • Event recording and live streaming.
    • Virtual world event spaces and structures.
    • Event hosting.
