The ability to create, explore and connect with people and places that aren't in the same physical space will open up new pathways. This will increase access and economic opportunities, and fundamentally transform the way we learn.
The metaverse will evolve into a collaborative effort between creators, developers and organizations of all sizes. While it's still early, the climate and appetite for new modes of learning is strong. For the first time, AR and VR technologies are broadly available enough to provide daily learning opportunities. Whether it's using AR to help bring stories to life or VR to set aside the laws of physics with friends, our phones and VR headsets provide visually stunning blends of digital and physical worlds.
The pandemic accelerated a global shift in education, with a sweeping adoption of online learning. This universal hybrid approach, which includes both in-person and online learning, has shifted access to knowledge from a traditional one-way delivery to a more learner-centric model, where classes can be better accessed online.
