Based in the UK, with offices in USA, Canada, Australia and Central Europe, Igloo Vision is a global leader in immersive collaboration technology. It designs and delivers immersive spaces that integrate with any digital content and are within the reach of any organisation to be used for a multitude of things.
When it comes to Education, the technology pairs perfectly, enabling schools, colleges and universities all over the world to benefit from immersive learning. Students and teachers can be inspired, engaged and immersed in any kind of content, enhancing their learning experience.

The technology also integrates with a huge number of applications, allowing students to work with the tools they know and love in a shared immersive space. Art and design students can design using Adobe, architecture students could create models using Matterport, healthcare students could create realistic scenarios using game engines such as Unity or all students could benefit from popular tools such as Microsoft Teams, Trello, Google Drive and more.
