ViewSonic Corp. is launching a beta version of a Metaverse for education.

The product, UNIVERSE by ViewSonic, features immersive virtual learning spaces such as classrooms, lecture halls and collaborative spaces.

Students can express themselves and interact with peers through personalized avatars. Intuitive controls allow them to navigate around the digital campus and engage with classmates in a digital environment where they’ll feel at ease to develop personal and meaningful connections. All communication can be conducted through private and group chats, emojis and true-to-life spatialized audio.

Teachers can utilize comprehensive teaching tools such as screen-sharing, presenting a camera feed, and creating pop quizzes to best suit the needs of each class. Meanwhile, students can collaborate through open discussions in the main learning space or break out into different meeting rooms for more focused discussions.

UNIVERSE by ViewSonic will be showcased at ISTE Live 22 Conference & Expo in New Orleans, June 27-29.

“The pandemic has changed the education landscape, and we’ve seen how digital innovation and technology has helped the education community overcome unforeseen challenges during this time,” said Kevin Chu, director of UNIVERSE Business Unit at ViewSonic. “Through ViewSonic’s continuous commitment to innovation in EdTech, we’ve created an immersive digital learning platform designed to enhance out-of-classroom learning experiences. UNIVERSE by ViewSonic aims to support educators teach with more creative freedom within online learning environments.”
