Anatomy in high school is widely used to increase students’ attention towards the biological and anatomical functions of living organisms. Carolina Biological, an anatomy curriculum provider in the US, worked with VictoryXR to develop the educational content. Wendy Martin, a national finalist for Teacher of the Year and an expert in high school science teaching for 20 years, is an anthropomorphic content educator, guiding students through the use of a virtual scalpel and scissors.
HTC VIVE Focus 3 is an all-in-one VR headset powered by the Qualcomm XR2 chip that delivers high-precision hand tracking, shared 5K resolution, and ergonomic comfort, which HTC has stated can help enable better learning experiences for students.
“Technology plays an important role in transforming the learning experience for students,” said Daniel O’Brien, General Manager, Americas, HTC VIVE. “Through this new partnership with VictoryXR, VIVE Focus 3 enables students to immerse themselves in anatomy curriculum in VR with remarkable visual fidelity and deeply immersive engagement to drive better learning outcomes in school.”
High school, college, and university educators can now purchase a complete learning solution with 30 learning experiences on VIVE Focus 3 for $1,399, including the animal anatomy curriculum, available now from Triumph XR.
