Bring experiences to life with Immersive Spaces
Give students, customers and employees experiences they’ve never had in the real world, with unique experiences and simulated learning made possible by Immersive Spaces.
Our Immersive Spaces are revolutionising education, work and entertainment through their interactive environments.
Since we launched our first Immersive Classroom for schools in 2021, we have been offering pioneering digital 360-degree learning environments to a range of sectors, from local authorities and healthcare to sports and entertainment.
Our expert partner, Immersive Interactive, specialises in the technology that allows customers to create interactive content quickly and easily. Its cloud-based solution connects over 500 spaces around the world, all sharing interactive content. Combined with our own vast network, market knowledge and ability to scale, the opportunities that Immersive Spaces offer to transform society and businesses are accelerating at pace.
This type of digital innovation is helping us to develop inclusive communities, with our Immersive Spaces currently in five locations across the UK. They run on a fast, reliable 5G connection (a feature unique to BT) and our dedicated expert team works closely with customers to ensure a seamless, end-to-end and bespoke set up that allows the customer to change interactive environments.
Learners at all levels are experiencing education like never before thanks to our Immersive Spaces. Primary and secondary school pupils are especially engaging with these multisensory environments that offer an expansive learning experience. All children (mainstream and SEND) are discovering the transformative potential of immersive learning, using it to enrich every aspect of their educational lives.
Borders College in the Scottish Borders is home to one such space. The 360-degree room, run on BT’s EE 5G network, projects onto all four classroom walls to bring real-life immersive learning opportunities that would otherwise not be accessible to students.
One example is for construction students at the College, who have previously not had the opportunity to access large-scale inner-city developments for on-site learning. With the new immersive technology, they can now experience these real-life construction environments first hand, which enhances their overall learning experience.
Our Immersive Spaces are not only helping students unlock their learning potential. They are also transforming how multiple industries operate. Their innovative potential is endless and can help support communities through training, attracting tourists and encouraging investment.
Training can be transformed with this technology, not only in terms of remote learning, but also in creating realistic real-life scenarios. For example, fire and safety training for firefighters can demonstrate how a fire was started with 360-degree full sensory sound, visuals and smells, without the need to create a real fire.
In healthcare, trainees can react to stressful medical and emergency scenarios safely in a controlled environment. Our Immersive Spaces are perfect for this type of simulation training and can support local authorities, healthcare, construction and manufacturing organisations, to name just a few. These sites harness a number of innovative technologies, including virtual and extended reality, enabling audiences to interact with the touch sensitive walls and floor.
This interactivity is powered by the Immersive Edit Suite, which puts the customer’s imagination at the fore and enables them to bring their ideas to life. Customers can create interactive scenes where, once selected, media is activated or the audience is taken to a new scene, allowing them to self-navigate through the immersive space with interactive touch pads, floor mapping, quizzes and hotspot sequencing.
