Create Magic in your Classroom
Teachers, you and your students can create Augmented Reality Experiences without needing to write any code. Metaverse is a FREE Augmented Reality Platform that is being used by thousands of teachers to build all kinds of interactive learning experiences for their classrooms.
Creating AR Experiences is easy, takes minutes, and anyone can do it.
Experiences are built in Metaverse Studio by arranging components on a “storyboard” and linking them together. Hundreds of components can be combined to create almost anything.
Experiences are instantly shareable via a unique link or a QR code, sent via email, embedded in web sites, or uploaded to collaborative Metaverse Boards.
Students can tap the link or scan the code with the Metaverse App to interact with AR Experiences.
Some things teachers and students are building
AR Challenges/Escape Rooms
These Experiences require that students crack the code based on the clues provided. Here are some to try:
Here’s how you can build your own Breakout for your class:
Experiences can be bundled together in a group to create a scavenger hunt. Each Experience must be completed in order to finish the hunt. By default, Experiences can be accessed anywhere, however you can make them only available at certain location on campus to create a campus-wide scavenger hunt.
Fun tip: Teachers have even printed out Metaverse QR codes and have placed them in different areas of the classroom.
Teachers are constantly submitting tutorials of things that they have built in Metaverse. Watch the full playlist here.
Students are building their own Experiences
Students love creating AR Experiences using Metaverse. It’s a lot of fun, and great at teaching the logic behind computer programming, allowing students to build things they can see, use, and play with immediately.
Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts (7th Best Film School in US) is teaching an “Augmented Reality Storytelling” class using Metaverse.
San Diego State ZIP Idea Lab is using Metaverse to build client projects.
AR Education Pioneers help spread the magic
