Gold Lotus Presents at the Vancouver Film School
We recently presented at the Vancouver Film School in an online workshop which demonstrated how webXR can support the creation of engaging learning environments.
WebXR is an extremely accessible framework which allows people to view virtual and augmented reality content just through a web browser. This means that even if you don't have a VR headset, you can still access the XR content through a phone or desktop computer and at least get a sense of what spatial computing is all about.
Thanks to the kind invitation from VFS Program Development Manager Mary Lim, Michael of Gold Lotus alongside webXR developer Matt Cool showed how the Spoke platform by Mozilla Hubs enables people to easily create their own educational webXR content. We shared the opportunities and pitfalls of such technology and guided the students through a creation of a simple VR scene.
Michael and Matt also announced an exciting new initiative which will continue to push the boundaries in how foreign languages like English are taught in VR - more information on that very soon!
If you would like to have your students learn English and future skills in VR then take a look at our VR for English and Future Skills program and get involved. If you're a business looking to understand how VR can support your employees' English language skills, get in touch via our contact page here.
