Day 5: Engage VR
I had the opportunity to explore the Engage platform a few years ago as a guest in Steve Bambury's event. As described below in my new book, The Immersive Classroom, my first Engage experience was done on my computer. At the time, only specific VR headsets and computers were able to download the application and participate.
Fast forward 4 years ahead and Engage released a new mobile application. The app is simple to use. It's easy for the individual to look and move around using the "joystick" at the bottom of the screen. Check out the video below to see a future virtual vendor hall.
