VR Education signs partnership agreement with VictoryXR

LONDON: VR Education, a leading virtual reality (VR) technology company focused on the education and enterprise training space, has signed a partnership agreement with US-based VictoryXR, a world leader in VR and augmented reality (AR) content creation for schools and education, for the use of the Group’s ENGAGE platform.

VR Education signs partnership agreement with VictoryXR 1VictoryXR specialises in US-based science curriculum content and virtual animal dissections, both in the VR and AR space.  To date VictoryXR has created more than 240 unique VR and AR learning experiences spanning more than 50 different learning units.

VR Education’s ENGAGE platform is a world leading education, training and communications tool used by educators and enterprise clients to provide remote training, distance learning and, most recently, as a platform to provide global virtual events.

VR Education and VictoryXR have agreed terms of a revenue share agreement, in which VictoryXR will import its extensive content library onto the ENGAGE platform and provide its services remotely to school children across the US.  Students using the platform will be both in physical schools and home schooled children, including those whose access to traditional learning methods have been impacted by COVID-19.  Qualified educators will run live virtual classes via ENGAGE and additional educational content produced by VictoryXR will be available for replay via the platform.

Commenting on the partnership agreement, Steve Grubbs, CEO of VictoryXR, said: “VictoryXR is taking school inside virtual reality with ENGAGE.  Students will learn with the best teachers and have the best learning labs, all in an interactive virtual world.

“We view ENGAGE as the platform, much like the iPhone is the platform for world of apps.  VictoryXR will build a VR school curriculum app on top of this platform which gives every school and every student access to the best equipment, the best teachers and the most effective learning.”

David Whelan, CEO of VR Education, said: “We are delighted to be working with Steve and his team at VictoryXR.  They have a wealth of experience and the content they have already produced is aligned with the US school curriculum built by world class qualified educators.  Having a platform like ENGAGE to deliver this content and provide easy-to-use content tools allows VictoryXR to develop and deploy similar high quality content quickly and easily at a much lower development cost.

“Even before the impact of COVID-19, the US home school market was quite significant with over 2.5 million home school students1.  As a result of this world changing event, we believe that this number is likely to accelerate quickly as students and parents become familiar with working online at home.  At a difficult time for education across the globe, ENGAGE provides a fantastic solution for distance learning and through this partnership with VictoryXR we are now able to provide services and content that go beyond anything previously offered within traditional educational programmes, not only in the US but globally.”
