D2L, a global learning technology company, today announced a new partnership with Unity, the world’s leading platform for creating and operating interactive, real-time 3D (RT3D) content with a goal to transform the education landscape through classroom integration of immersive Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and RT3D technologies. The partnership is a direct response to the increased demand for innovative and engaging learning experiences in the classroom.
“Immersive technology revolutionizes learning by breaking down traditional barriers, turning education into a dynamic and engaging experience that goes beyond the limits of classrooms,” said Natalie Mai, Global Head of Education Sales at Unity. “We’re excited to see how D2L can more deeply connect educators and students through Unity.”
With Unity education licenses now available through D2L Brightspace, D2L’s learning innovation platform, educators can have access to tools, professional training, and certifications to help create immersive learning experiences that can transcend traditional boundaries of learning. From virtual science experiments to medical-training simulations, students can have the opportunity to test their knowledge and benefit from a more engaging and hands-on experience.
“Over the past few years, we have seen exciting possibilities for the use of XR technologies (virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality) in teaching and corporate learning environments. At D2L, we believe that education should inspire, engage, and prepare students for the future,” said Katie Bradford, VP of Product Partnerships at D2L. “By partnering with Unity, we continue in our mission to explore how emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR), can be leveraged to help enable new ways of learning and we look forward to continuing to transform the future of learning with partners like Unity.”
Training and learning management system support will be available through D2L for Business to help users successfully integrate, harness and track the progress of how immersive learning can impact students.
