Virtual Reality Platform for Education | Rumii

July 14, 2020

Virtual Reality,
in simplest of terms, is creating simulated 3D environments with the
application of computer technology. A virtual reality or VR user will
experience a world beyond just viewing a screen. She or he would be placed
within an immersive 3 dimensional simulation of an environment wherein she or
he can interact with not just the environment but also its constituent components.
Even though the technology has been around for a while now, it is only in the
past decade that it has become affordable and now simpler for the common user
to access and enjoy. It has opened up vast avenues of possibilities in almost
every conceivable field- science, medicine, engineering, design, defence,
gaming, entertainment, education etc.

During these
challenging times of the global pandemic- VR technology can provide a wide
range of solution for the education sector, especially in the fields which
require a high degree of interaction. VR can exponentially enhance the
experience and the learning quotients of online meetings, conference, mentoring
online classes, etc. There are many online classes application for PC and
Mobile platform like Zoom, Google classroom, etc. Similarly, there are many
applications for VR platforms too. One of the best applications for VR platform
is Rumii.

“Rumii brings efficiency to the education and training and re-engages people in immersive and social environments that leverage our natural human desires for socialization and achievement, reducing the leader-learner paradigm to an average of 8 meaningful hours of intentional interaction. Imagine that - an entire complex concept taught in an average or eight hours.”
- Doghead Simulation

The best thing about Rumii it is available for PC and Mobile as well as for major VR headsets like Oculus, Vive, WMR etc. Rumii provides immersive experience. To use Rumii one needs a VR supported mobile phone and simple Google Cardboard. Once a classroom environment has been adapted to Rumii it enables the students and instructors to share the same virtual space despite being physically distant. It also provides tools to build realistic environments and classrooms. With the help of avatar customization tool, users can capture their personality, exercise their sense of individuality, and create their true self. With help of Rumii shared asset logic makes it faster for teams to share and collaborate on the images, videos, 3D objects, etc. instead of wasting time searching through files.

This pandemic has thrown many unforeseen challenges upon the education sector. But as design educators, we could be the forerunners of embracing these challenges and adopting newer and emergent modalities of content delivery. It is an opportunity for us all to redefine how education is imparted as well as absorbed.
