To accommodate the influx of interest at the university level, and to provide a measure of financial relief, InstaVR is now offering a single price point for University-wide subscriptions. The normal single per user subscription of InstaVR Pro at $199 USD per month will now be offered for unlimited student and staff access on approved academic email domains. If there are 10,000 students and staff in the university, the cost per user per month is around $0.02 USD.

To get started with the new InstaVR Academic tier, a single user from the approved university email domain needs to sign up and purchase an InstaVR Pro annual subscription. All subsequent users who sign up with that same email domain will automatically be upgraded to the advanced Pro tier. Find approved domains at 9,704 domains listed.

“We recognize the challenges of teaching higher education students remotely,” said Daniel H. Haga, CEO and Founder of InstaVR. “Virtual Reality helps create a more educational and immersive experience for students. It’s also a great technology for students to learn to use themselves, as forward-thinking workplaces have already incorporated VR into their daily environments.”

Additionally, given travel restrictions, colleges can utilize their organization-wide InstaVR Academic access to create 360-degree virtual campus tours for prospective students who can no longer physically visit.

“Coronavirus has unfortunately altered the way learning takes place,” said Haga. “The classroom of the future, driven by immersive Virtual Reality, is sadly becoming a reality much faster. Hopefully our platform and Academic tier pricing helps universities with that transition.”
