Bring your lectures to life
in an immersive environment

Stratbox can help you to create more engaging content with on-demand access to world-class outcrop analogues across different geological settings. Students and lecturers can collaborate in real time in 3D space so that you can assess learning in real time. Design your courses integrating data from regional scale (seismic images, cross sections, maps, outcrops etc) to pore scale (thin sections, CT scans, etc) in the same platform.

Next generation tools for tomorrow’s geologists

To develop the skills that they will use throughout their careers, students need to visit the field often and work with outcrops from a wide range of geological settings. Cost constraints and safety hazards do not always make this possible. Thanks to Stratbox, they can develop their skills in an always-accessible virtual environment. Stratbox offers on-demand access to a world-class outcrop catalogue and interpretation tools for virtual field trips.

Augmented learning

Working in a virtual 3D environment increases understanding and retention. Students can make observations from inaccessible viewpoints and do things that would be impossible in real life. They can draw directly on the rocks and experience outcrops at real scale. Data at different scales can be integrated in the same space. Both knowledge and understanding are deepened, as immersion increases cognition and knowledge retention.

When field trips are possible, Stratbox enables lecturers and their students to examine the outcrops virtually, ahead of the physical trip, allowing better planning. It also enables revisiting the site, back in the classroom for continued analysis. However it is used, Stratbox doesn’t merely replicate the experience of being in the field, it augments it with 3D data integration in an immersive environment.

Increase memory recall

Learning in immersive virtual environments has been shown to enhance engagement and recall of taught content.

Create a collaborative classroom

Students can work together from anywhere, interpreting formations using a suite of smart tools.

Make the field accessible & inclusive

With Stratbox, a student’s ability to work at an outcrop is not restrained by physical obstacles.
