As Co-founder of this startup in virtual reality and education, the journey of this organization has been far more than building a user experience architecture or developing a content strategy for a client. I have been a part of every decision made to move us forward as we have developed this market-making company.
To envision and build is an education technology studio-lab where teens create and share immersive stories and games from inside the Virtual World by means of motion capture technologies and 3D tracking systems.
Work with my co-founder Alex Stolyarik to implement the vision, find both human and financial resources to allow us to build a platform and hold workshops with students to test our assumptions and our methodology, get feedback, then iterate on what we’ve learned.
Finances have been our biggest challenge—we have been self-funded for most of the process, though we did successfully complete a Kickstarter campaign to help us develop some of our story-games based on workshops that our student groups completed
Many results are still to come, but we have received accolades from other virtual reality companies throughout the region and continued interest from students and potential funders alike.
