Ukrainian edtech company DAN.IT launched the first metaverse via ZEEON in Great Britain.
- DAN.IT is the first of its kind global Tech education centre offering students from around the world a fully immersive learning experience in a 360 online environment.
- As the company experimented with new technologies and innovations, it became increasingly clear the metaverse was the most efficient form of teaching, allowing the team to reach a wider range of students, from more countries, and provide a more collaborative and immersive educative environment than, say, a Zoom call could.
- Courses available now: Full-Stack Web Developer, UI / UX Design, Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Product Owner.
- Kseniia Stolbova, CEO of DAN.IT: “Our plans to migrate fully to the metaverse were accelerated by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which forced many of our employees to leave the country and our physical business to close down. Just over 120 days ago, our business had to leave the physical world and enter the metaverse, with an uncertain but exciting future ahead. Time for the metaverse.”
