MOOFU, a fast-growing UK company focusing on emerging technology, emerging markets and emerging people, today announces the launch of an interactive online 3D tool that enables teachers, students and planners to test learning environments.
LEVROS – Learning Environments Virtual Reality Online Simulator – has been developed by MOOFU in partnership with Institute of Education, University of London, Birmingham Local Education Partnership and the leading educational planner Dr Kenn Fisher.
Teachers and students anywhere in the world can work together to experiment with furniture, resources and layout, moving them freely to modify environments. With this ability to manipulate objects and positioning, LEVROS will be a powerful way of testing the effectiveness of learning environments for disabled students.
A significant advantage of LEVROS over existing simulators is its unique capability which allows the insertion of any architectural design 3D model being developed by architects in association with teachers so that any specific design concept can be tested by the users to provide feedback for the designers to make improvements.

Sylvia McNamara, Director of Education, Birmingham City Council says: “Through the Building Schools for the Future programme, which is more than just buildings, we are committed to transforming learning and curriculum delivery in schools across Birmingham. LEVROS is an innovative change management tool that gives our key stakeholders – students, school leaders, governing bodies and the local community - the opportunity to creatively engage with design concepts throughout the transformation process and explore the full potential of their schools.”
