CoLearn VR
Collaborative VR Learning Platform

I want to let kids from Canada, the US, Mexico, and Colombia walk the Medieval Canals of Venice together to learn about history, culture, and each other. - Sean Lander, Co-Founder

CoLearn VR is a Collaborative VR Learning Platform where students and teachers can learn and explore in an endless number of virtual reality experiences.

Our learners will have access to everything from atomic-scale nuclear fission, to the ecology of a dense tropical rainforest, to a turning-point battle in World War 2, all from the same room. By providing a shared environment, teachers and learners can ask and answer questions, provide background information, or even work together to interact with the environment itself, helping to provide an engaging social learning experience.

As a distributed platform, CoLearn VR also provides a benefit to administrators, allowing schools, districts, and other organizations to pool their teaching resources to provide a wider range of options for their learners. Schools can now offer niche classes with small local attendance by relying on other organizations to provide students, while schools with fewer teaching resources can utilize outside resources to prevent their students from falling behind.

CoLearn VR provides a portal to an engaging, affordable, accessible education.

Our Games

In Development

"Life was easy before the tires came." Scavenge and thrive using everything the junk yard can provide. Just watch out for the old cellphones, 'cause they don't go down easy.

WasteCraft arose from the question "can you actually make waste management fun?" From games about swiping trash into the correct bucket to...games about swiping trash into the correct bucket, the answer looked to be "not really." With a challenge like that, who were we to pass it up! WasteCraft is made possible thanks to the fine folks at the City of Columbia Waste Management Division and their small project grants.

Continuous Development

You're the star in this VR serial about TV, ego, and chasing ratings.

As the star in an over-produced, under-funded TV show, it's your job to follow your director's whims, no matter how bad his ideas. What's popular right now? Zombies, of course! Jump on the band wagon and hope we get renewed for a second season!

Continuation of a short VR project created for CoMo Game Jam III.
