itorium, an education technology start-up from the co-founders of the University of the Netherlands and Flanders, has launched Virtual Classrooms, a new interactive learning tool for organizations and educational institutions. With the help of the most innovative technologies, Virtual Classrooms give a new dimension to personal interaction in a digital learning environment. The Virtual Classrooms tool meets the increasing demand of companies and educators to find an effective way to plan and present their digital learning experiences.

itorium has started a partnership for this with media technology company NEP. The ISO-certified technical backbone of NEP and its state-of-the-art its state-of-the-art broadcast facilities are deployed to create interactive and safe learning environments together. Thereby the user experience is created to fit the learning content and is designed for a ‘human’ way of learning and communicating.

Virtual Classrooms

In the Virtual Classrooms, trainers or teachers can give lectures and courses from a studio, supported by NEP’s Augmented Reality features and LED display technology.

Whether it’s about developing a learning program, content creation, or the deployment of our interactive learning tools, for every question within the online learning process, itorium can add value. We analyze the content of the course and find the right technology to create a learning experience as natural as possible, which current online learning environments often can’t provide. The Virtual Classrooms are an extension of our current portfolio and offer the possibility to bring online learning experiences to the next level. In this way we try to make the difference and make online learning for everyone appealing and effective.”
