St. Vrain Valley Schools Becomes First District-wide Adoption of Avantis Education’s Eduverse VR Platform


Chicago — Avantis Education has partnered with the 33,000-student school district, St. Vrain Valley Schools, in Colorado to provide Eduverse – Avantis’ award-winning library of immersive VR and AR content and standards-aligned lessons – to all of the district’s 60 schools. The contract marks the first district-wide adoption of Eduverse and means teachers in all 60 schools can now take advantage of Avantis’ immersive content even if they don’t have access to VR headsets.

“St. Vrain Valley Schools has been using Avantis’ ClassVR headsets since 2018. We have the headsets at 21 of our schools right now and love the rich library of content available to those students. We had been managing the licensing for these schools individually, and are pleased to be able to manage ClassVR at a district level,” said Eric Pierce, the district’s director of IT Services and Support. “Additionally, with this district-wide Eduverse license, the content that’s available in ClassVR can also be accessed on devices that students already have, like iPads, which is exciting for us. We’re a 1:1 district and having this curated library of experiences available for all students on all devices is very valuable and a win for our students.”

“Our goal at Avantis Education is to make it easy for teachers to bring innovative, immersive content and VR experiences to their classrooms,” said Avantis Education’s Chief Executive Officer Huw Williams. “For schools that want the full immersive experience, they can use ClassVR. If schools only have ClassVR for some classrooms, but not others, they can use Eduverse to access our immersive content on any web-enabled device, including laptops, Chromebooks and tablets, inside or outside of the classroom.”

St. Vrain Valley Schools plans to pilot Eduverse content next semester to schools that don’t currently have it. Eduverse has been added to the district’s ClassLink platform which makes it easy for teachers to access the content with a single sign-on password. Pierce is especially excited to see what impact Avantis’ science and social studies content can deliver to the district’s schools. “We can virtually take students to other countries or have them explore the surface of Mars. We’re looking forward to bringing those unique experiences to all our schools,” he said.
