XR Terra is known to provide quality training in augmented reality and virtual reality. Version Learning HQ, on the other hand, is a free learning platform available to K-12 educators all over the world.
The training platform, XR Terra, developed an “XR Foundations for Educators program.” This program is an immersive training designed to help instructors become confident by equipping them with knowledge of the latest technologies, which include AR and VR.
The program began around the summer and ended in the fall of 2022. A total of 500 teachers were trained at the time. However, the goal is to stretch the figure to about 2,000 teachers in 2023.
