Create VR Experiences via CoSpaces

CoSpaces is an easy VR tool that allows users to create virtual reality experiences on a computer or tablet. Users begin by creating an environment or setting and adding customized objects to build their own world in the browser app. Users can add photos, text boxes, audio files, and speech bubbles. Objects can be made interactive through coding using both scripts or visual blocks, which is a good introduction to coding.

After creating in VR experince in a browser, users can utilize the CoSpaces app on their mobile device to experience their VR creation. Users login to the app to access content. Content can also be shared with others. CoSpaces is available in the BISD apps catalog.
