In addition to using Zoe on Oculus Quest, educators can now access the Zoe app on iOS devices. This easy access gives ubiquitous flexibility in creating a fully interactive experience in only a few hours – a skill previously reserved for those with extensive knowledge of game engines or visual effects programs. Zoe’s intuitive tools, with simple and visual interfaces, allow for the creation of complex 3D virtual learning spaces that can be used to explain processes, solve problems, tell stories, create games, and more. Educators and students can now drag and drop objects from Sketchfab’s online 3D library to create interactive experiences while also learning valuable planning, project management, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Zoe also prepares students for the 21st Century workplace by developing digital skills, such as design, creating user interfaces, programming, and working with movement and space.
“Educators will be able to breathe new life into their lesson plans and coursework while teaching their students valuable real-time 3D technology skills,” said Emilie Joly, co-founder and CEO of Zoe Immersive. “Sketchfab’s database of assets provides endless options for educators to customize their lessons, making the process with Zoe easier than ever.”
