Episode Notes

Nicolas is creating the next reality for online learning using VR - the intersection of accessible education and movement towards the metaverse.

After realizing the difficulties and lack of immersiveness of online learning, Nicolas took a gap year from his studies at Cornell as an Applied Mathematics major to found a VR company, combining technology with his passion for educational accessibility. They have now taught over 10,000 students and are currently the 3rd largest VR events producer.

But education isn’t the only application for VR. 3D interactions in a virtual setting form the foundations of the “metaverse”.

“A new reality but a digital life, just like you would do things in real life in a new location and meet people, but in a digital sense and represented as a 3D avatar.”

Nicolas discusses the applications of VR to education, trends of online and in-person education, and the rise of the metaverse.
