In 1968, Ivan Sutherland invented the world’s first VR headset thus, it could be said, setting the stage for Extended Reality. Since then, XR has continued to re-define possibilities that lie ahead for key industries, one of them being education. At TILTLABS, we believe that education goes hand in hand with engagement. An engaged mind is open to absorbing new concepts and knowledge, thus shaping it in new ways. For example, in the past, first-graders were limited to learning about the moon through textbooks. Today, thanks to the marvel of XR, they can don a headset and, in a matter of seconds, take a step on the moon, following in the footsteps of Armstrong and Aldrin. Beyond classrooms, XR learning can also be applied to high-consequence industries such as medicine.

Learning is a lot about interaction between students and teachers as well as other learners. XR breaks down geographical boundaries to create a realistic platform that enables much richer sharing of ideas and knowledge.
XR provides students with the opportunity to sharpen their skills by putting their theoretical knowledge to practice in a realistic environment. One such example is that of medical students getting to perform surgery in a simulated setting.
Imagine taking students on a tour of a far-off country or even transporting them to another planet! Thanks to XR, students can learn about new cultures and geographies without having to leave the classroom.
Learning games are an effective way to nurture an interest in learning. VR adds a new perspective to this teaching practice, creating an interactive and fun learning environment. In fact, virtual games have been known to promote memory and cognitive learning.
