Lighting Up New Possibilities
EnlightenerVR is dedicated to exploring the educational potential of Virtual Reality. As an advocate for emerging technology, we try to promote the integration of VR and traditional industries. We are addressing the foreign language education industry, particularly those who are learning English.
Business dialogue simulation
ConVRse is an English learning VR application. The goal of the application is to allow students to learn and practice English in an authentic language environment, anytime and anywhere.
We capture real-life conversation scenarios in English-speaking countries, mainly in the United States, with 360-degree cameras. We then add interactive functions to create immersive English conversation simulations. Virtual Reality technology has the power to provide English learners with a sense of presence that's far beyond any other traditional medium. This feeling of presence allows students to learn English in a much more contextual and efficient way.
