Virtual Reality (VR) Classroom: Free From Google

Google Is Offering Its Virtual Reality Classroom System to Schools for Free

Nick Statt | September 28, 2015

Google wants students everywhere to begin experiencing the world in virtual reality, specifically by using its low-cost Cardboard headsets and a free field-trip simulation software known as Expeditions. The search giant announced today that it's offering Expeditions, which comes with a box of headsets and software teachers can control from a tablet, free to schools who want to deploy it in the classroom, according to The New York Times. It is both a way for Google to further develop its do-it-yourself VR kit and also an opportunity to make Google products a fixture in education systems around the globe.
