Using VRPlants for Remote Instruction
VRPlants’ projects include several different tools to support online or remote learning. These games and videos are supported on desktop, tablet, Google Cardboard, and other 360° viewing devices. We hope educators will utilize these free, no-download-necessary media within their own classrooms and instruction.
