Our 360° videos bring the world to your classroom with a vibrant view of life above and below the waves. 360° video, also known as virtual reality (VR), immersive or spherical video, is video of a real-world panorama where the view in every direction is recorded at the same time, either by an omnidirectional camera or a collection of cameras synced together. During playback, the viewer has control of the viewing perspective and an incredible 360° virtual experience.

Through the use of 360° videos, students shift from passive viewers to active participants, controlling what they see and how they experience the video. This total immersion offers limitless opportunities to engage students throughout the learning process as they become immersed in other cultures and diverse habitats without ever leaving the classroom.
