Metaverse Virtual Classrooms

Metaverse Virtual Classroom: The New Era Learning Experience

Virtual technology has been leading the world towards the new paradigm of various industries- from VR healthcare labs to virtual classrooms for education. Over the years every industry has embraced the idea of an immersive environment. In the coming time, this might even help shoot up the productivity and efficiency of the people involved in the process. 


One of the industries in which immersive technology has helped usher in a new era is education. During the pandemic, the education industry saw a shift, and a gap was created between the educator and the student. Though, this was bridged by technologies like online classes and webinars, soon the problems grew obvious and frustrating for educators and learners while using online classes.


These were: 

  • The non-interactive classes 
  • The classes were easily procrastinated
  • Peer-to-peer learning was barely happening 


And as the problem grew bigger, it led to the entry of the emerging technology of the metaverse. 

Web3-based technologies like blockchain, nfts and metaverse became a perfect hammer to break all these limitations. 


‘Edverse- the education metaverse’ is the best Metaverse platform for online Education as it unlocks a door to a world of vast opportunities. Edverse recently raised $700K in its seed round, with our core idea of integrating Education with metaverse. During the past 7 months, we are ‘the shift’ that education has witnessed. Launching our pre-alpha version in July, we became the world’s largest education metaverse to have a running version.


Now, we have successfully launched our virtual classroom, ‘ Edverse’s Metaverse Classroom’. This virtual classroom will deliver the 3D immersive learning experience in a way never seen before.


Edverse’s Metaverse Classroom



Edverse Meta classroom is the world’s first virtual classroom that will offer classes for educators and learners inside the Metaverse. Aside from an immersive learning experience, these metaverse classes exponentially shoot up the efficiency of both the students and teachers. Everyone can join from the comfort of their own home and educators no longer need a physical infrastructure, pen drives with ppts/videos or even worry about not being heard at the back of a room. 


How will Virtual classrooms help rewrite educational pedagogy?


Metaverse classrooms are indeed rewriting the ways classes were conducted previously. When we compare traditional education with what metaverse education has to offer, we can clearly see the gaps that Edverse is covering. 


Benefits of Virtual classrooms for students


Let’s take up a simple example to understand the benefits of virtual classrooms for students. If a student from India had to study culinary arts, firstly, he would have a hard time looking for an adequate institute. After that, the second issue that the person will face is the geographical distance they have to travel to that institution. Lastly, not every session that they’ll attend will hold their attention span and the retention rate is comparatively lower.

 

On the contrary, Edverse’s virtual classes give any student an opportunity to study from the aces of their respective domains from all across the globe. This being said, any student will have an opportunity to choose what they want to study and from where they want to study. The second issue automatically dissolves, by logging into any of the metaverse classes. The geographical barrier is trimmed as every classroom is just one click away from any student. Lastly, the attention plus the retention rate is exponentially improved in e-learning.

- Analysing the benefits of e-learning, SH!FT has observed an increased learning retention rate of 25% to 60%. Observations claim that face-to-face learning retention rates range from 8-10%.


Benefits of Virtual classrooms for teachers


Geographical constraints are a barrier for both, let it be the teacher or the student. And as previously discussed, this barrier is well tackled by Edverse’s virtual classes. Moreover, virtual classes will give educators a limitless teaching experience. This means that the upper limit to the number of students they can teach will rise.

In addition to this, the teachers will be delivered 3D NFTs based on educational models. These NFTs (as we call them Ed-NFTs) can be used to educate students. 


These Ed-NFTs enable any tutor to grasp the practicality of any concept at its core. Thus enabling their students to embrace this knowledge.


These are just a few of the infinite learning and teaching opportunities that Edverse’s metaverse classes will provide. Why don’t you read through and follow some simple steps and eventually witness how exactly Virtual classes will change the pedagogies of education?

New and emerging technologies like Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence will impact all areas of our lives. Educational institutes can offer cutting-edge solutions to students and invest in metaverse land to build meta-versities.


The Valued Added Learning that Metaverse Virtual Classrooms Offer: 


Synchronous Virtual Classrooms can address specific and individual needs of learners. They go beyond the scope of physical classrooms to offer engaging experiences with education. Moreover, offer real-time teaching, instant resolutions, and high engagement activities that lead to active learning.


The one–on–one connection is established flawlessly in a virtual classroom, just like a physical classroom. However, it demands changes in pedagogical approach and educational content delivery methods.


Student–Focused Approach


Virtual classes shift the focus from content to student-led and encourage active participation. The teachers allow collaborative and independent learning space, and students are encouraged to participate at their comfort levels. The method aims to generate self-interest and self-confidence to be in charge of the goal accomplishment.


Highly Interactive


Virtual Learning offers immense scope for student-centric methods, making them active learners. Active learners are better engaged with course content enabling higher retention and positive outcomes.


This further escalates intrinsic motivation to achieve more milestones. In virtual classes, teachers can pave the way for high interactivity through frequent one-on-one interactions, brainstorming, group discussions, and Q & A s.


Encourages Collaborative Learning


Learners collaborate through the available tools to achieve shared learning goals, doubt resolutions and exchange of information. Collaborative learning in these classrooms occurs through break-out rooms, shared chats and group work.


Collaborative learning virtual rooms encourage healthy team bonding and healthy group competitions. Groups are formed to create information centres and subsequently disseminate knowledge further to the group of learners. It enhances skill development and team bonding.


Multi-Modal Content Delivery


Virtual learning rooms build upon the concept that no individual learns alike. Hence it facilitates the exchange of instructional material through many modes and deploys a wide range of media. Links, text, videos, audio, animations, embedded.

 

These are a few of the futuristic features that metaverse classes and as a whole Edverse will provide to all the stakeholders of education. Though we are at an early stage of this educational revolution, we are standing firm with a lot more to offer to those who have an enthusiasm for education. Stay tuned to see what Edverse has to offer in the near future and till then have an immersive education experience with Edverse Metaeverse classroom.
