IRVINE, Calif., June 23, 2022 – Immerse, the leading education metaverse platform, has partnered with Meta to launch the first educational virtual world on Meta’s app store.

Immerse is pioneering the best way for people to become fluent in a new language. Unlike 2D phone apps or pre-recorded VR simulations, Immerse doesn’t force you to memorize pre-written scripts. Instead, Immerse invites its members to a virtual world where they can put their foreign language knowledge into practice supported by a community of expert educators and fellow learners. Immerse members can now access the excitement and effectiveness of language immersion from the comfort of their living room using VR - all in an effort to eliminate barriers to human connection. 

Now, language enthusiasts and globetrotters alike can sign up for an Immerse membership where they can schedule live Spanish classes, enjoy live peer-to-peer conversation practice, and participate in weekly community events - all in VR from the comfort of their own home. 

Over the past four years, the Immerse team has partnered with major education brands to bring VR into the traditional classroom. Simultaneously, Immerse partnered with over 20 of the top research universities in North America, Europe, and Japan to prove the efficacy of learning in virtual reality. Over the course of that time, the Immerse team designed and battle-tested a pedagogy for teaching and learning in virtual reality with over 5,000 learners. This on-the-ground development experience, coupled with the rise of the metaverse, has positioned Immerse to pioneer the next era of learning. 

Immerse membership includes: 

  • 12 Live VR lessons facilitated by an expert Language Guide per month
  • 24/7 access to the Social lounge for live conversation practice
  • Personalized feedback to accelerate fluency growth 
  • Weekly events to build new community and cultural insight

For the last decade, educational VR companies have been seen as a supplemental tool and add-on to the traditional classroom. But in this new era of the Web3, Immerse is building a platform that reimagines how the metaverse will become the one-stop shop for education. Immerse has three goals for their educational metaverse platform: 1) develop the best practices for immersive teaching and learning  2) build a thriving virtual world community that will one day rival the likes of Rec Room, Roblox, and VRChat, and 3) usher in the next evolution of learning in Web3.

Quinn Taber, Founder and CEO of Immerse comments:

“After Facebook rebranded to Meta it became clear that the metaverse was going to fundamentally change how people work, play, and learn. The time had come for virtual reality and the metaverse to no longer be thought of as a small add-on to the classroom, but instead for platforms to go direct-to-consumer and disrupt schools head-on. So our team began meeting with Meta’s teams, as well as with top social impact investors, to design a new virtual world built explicitly for a community of learners. We are now on a mission to build the first thriving metaverse community that learns, teaches, and builds together…with VR language teaching and learning being our starting place.”

Immerse is available on the Meta VR App Store for $44.99 per month. Immerse is live on the Meta Quest 2 VR headset and will soon become cross VR device compatible to further increase access to immersive learning experiences.
