Educate in Virtual Reality

Use immersive storytelling combined with interactive education to bring prospective students into your classrooms and on campus, train employees before they step foot onto a job site and help communities see their potential. 360-degree video build into custom apps on the iOS, Android and Oculus Rift platforms can have the potential to help people envision solutions far better than promotional materials.

Helping Future College Students make the right choice

Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) NC has unveiled a new app that will allow users to take immersive virtual reality tours of each of the UNC System’s 16 institutions of higher education. The app is designed to encourage students to aspire to higher education and to connect them with the institution that will help them attain their academic and personal goals. Students who access the app will find 16 short virtual reality videos, which highlight the unique features that characterize each institution. Anyone who does not have access to a VR headset will still be able to watch the 360 videos on their phones and laptops, toggling controls to pan left and right, up and down.

Using VR for Social Good

We’ve been so fortunate to partner with foundations, trade organizations, educational institutions and news organizations to build stories that can help changing populations. Whether it is access to good healthcare, training for trade organizations, disaster relief or experiencing new parts of the world we have built custom solutions and stories for a variety of our partners.

Training the next Generation of Tradespeople

Behind each apprenticeship there must be a job supporting it. For nearly 15 years, unions in the building trades and companies in the biopharmaceutical industry have partnered together with the mission of fostering innovation of life-saving medicines and creating union construction jobs.

Apprentices earn while they learn, graduate debt free, and all this is done through private investment. We helped the Pharmaceutical Industry Labor-Management Association (PILMA) create a 360-degree tour of one of their partners, Local 19, to show how apprentices train before getting onto the job site.

Gaining Access to Dental Care

Native Americans have faced and continue to face incredible challenges as a community--from tribal sovereignty to the battle over sacred lands--but perhaps a lesser known crisis among American Indians is an epidemic of poor dental care. SeeBoundless and The Kellogg Foundation visited the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community to see how dental therapy is helping address the pressing issue of tooth decay.
