Irish virtual reality company Immersive VR Education has expanded into South Korea after securing a three-year deal worth €210,000 over the lifetime of the contract.

The Dublin-listed but Waterford-based company has signed a commercial agreement with D’Carrick, a South Korean immersive digital content company, which together with its partner, Fix Games, creates educational programmes.

The deal will see VR Education rolling out its online virtual social learning and presentation platform Engage to students across the country.

The Engage platform allows educators and corporate trainers to hold classes, host meetings, conduct private tutorials and carry out training sessions and presentations with people from all over the world.

VR Education chief executive David Whelan said D’Carrick’s adoption of its platform as a tool to provide education in South Korea was a “welcome first step in the Asian market”.
