"One solution for education to deal with the rising COVID-19 cases in Indonesia is remote education. MilleaLab does not just offer three-dimensional virtual learning; it goes beyond that."
In March 2020, Indonesia experienced the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in many activities in various aspects of life. One of the aspects affected by this deadly virus outbreak is education. At the end of 2023, active cases of COVID-19 in Indonesia again made all educational entities worried that it would impact the effectiveness of teaching and learning activities. Fortunately, at the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has triggered the development of various technological innovations to provide solutions to problems. As a result, the world of education will synergize positively with emerging technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR).
One of the education technology (EdTech) platforms that rely on VR technology is MilleaLab. MilleaLab has established in 2019, a year before the COVID-19 pandemic hit Indonesia. Today, when COVID-19 has galvanized all levels of society, including education, MilleaLab can be a leading application to support remote and interactive learning in Indonesia. After all, if we are discussing distance education as a solution to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, social interaction in the classroom will be indispensable.
Besides remote education, MilleaLab also offers an interactive virtual learning world in a three-dimensional form. Moreover, the learning atmosphere in MilleaLab's learning content is very flexible. In other words, educators can customize learning scenarios for learners according to their learning needs. Yes, educators and learners will remain connected to each other when using MilleaLab. This connection is managed by MilleaLab's excellent features, which include the 'Drag n Drop' system, Data Analytics, and Quizzes.
In MilleaLab Creator application, one of MilleaLab's applications, educators can create these learning spaces by using a feature base, namely 'Drag n Drop' system, on the 3D assets that MilleaLab has provided. In addition, educators can also monitor the activities of their students while learning in the virtual world, such as the time students spend on a quiz, the results of quiz scores that students have done, and many more. On the other hand, learners only need a smartphone, which most learners use every day.
MilleaLab Viewer is another application than MilleaLab that learners will use to access VR learning content that educators have created. Learners can carry out teaching and learning activities at their respective homes and still get maximum learning material. Learners can also access learning content in MilleaLab Viewer through 360° mode, non-gyro mode, and VR mode. Thus, educators and students can carry out learning optimally and interactively, even though they are at home.
Restricting learning activities at school using MilleaLab is our first step to adapting to immersive technology such as VR. At the end of 2023, the COVID-19 virus again raised the concerns of educators and parents of students, and students can be conquered through distance education by using MilleaLab. MilleaLab is directly the answer to its contribution in fully supporting the needs of today's education world.
