EDIFY will transform Higher Education learning and teaching using immersive
High-quality immersive teaching interventions for core subject curricula.
Custom VR and AR apps will allow EDIFY to collect more segmented higher quality, active and passive learner data, and data about the learning process itself. These rich new data will then inform pedagogy, curriculum development
and learner trajectory.
Currently in the pre-launch phase - we seek a handful of full test-bed institutions.
BETTER TEACHING THROUGH IMMERSIVE TECHNOLOGY:
Pathfinder immersive VR teaching applications.
Initial apps are:
Teacher-led concepts Uniquely suited to immersive technology (AR or VR)
Core to the subject:
relevant across diverse curricula
The platform is extensible:
progressively more apps developed and added.
LEARNING FROM LEARNING:
Immersive technology like VR and AR offers unprecedented levels of (anonymised) learner data.
Immersive technology will yield data from diverse learners & subjects.
Data collection is automated and passive. EDIFY will deliver
pedagogically-driven analytics. We will learn how learners learn.
& IMPROVEMENT LOOP:
EDIFY analytics drive teaching innovation and improvement. Our analytics will improve initial 10 teaching apps, and inspire new immersive teaching interventions.
Over an initial 5-year period our ambition is that EDIFY will evolve to become the smartest, most engaging immersive teaching platform available.
