Give your students access to tomorrow’s tools and get them totally engaged in the learning process by making it immersive and physical.

Create sustainable learning with the 3dRudder

Engage your students

While a recent study showed that average human attention span is no higher than 8 seconds, getting your students full attention is key to the learning process. The advantage of using the 3dRudder is it enables interaction in many ways: one student can experiment a VR or 3D application while the other students share the view and can react to what they see; or the teacher can use the 3dRudder to walk students through an experience -like Google Earth for example. Infusing interactivity supports engagement and creates sustainable learning.

Create personalized interactive learning

The 3dRudder makes students actively take part in the learning process by enabling them to physically explore and move in any 3D or virtual reality simulation. With their feet on the board, they can pick their own perspective, get closer to an object, and turn around it to have a better view, while freeing up their hands for interaction. The 3dRudder combined with a VR or 3D application allows an in-depth understanding of the curriculum. Learning becomes interactive, and personalized to every student’s need.

Make learning a giant game with the 3dRudder

Geography: Google Earth & 3dRudder

Geography teaching can be made fun and memorable. Put your pupils in Google Earth. With their feet on the 3dRudder, they can make the earth rotate east- or westward to change continent, zoom in, travel south or north, and learn to locate countries, oceans, in a playful, sustainable way.

The 3dRudder is natively compatible with Google Earth. All you need to do is download the 3dRudder’s dashboard, and use the 3dRudder in Joystick mode.
The video shows how easily you can get started.

Learning programming made easy and fun with the 3dRudder

Scratch Offline & 3dRudder

The 3dRudder is a user-friendly peripheral that proves a great pedagogical tool in teaching computer-science based classes. Combined with Scratch, the MIT Educational software, the 3dRudder helps pupils approach programming in an appealing, playful way.

To use the 3dRudder as a motion controller in Scratch Offline, you just need to download our free plugin.

Introduce a touch of Virtual Reality with the 3dRudder

Solid geometry: Google Blocks & 3dRudder



Some abstract curricula such as solid geometry are difficult to teach. Because it allows students to literally move in 3D environments, the 3dRudder is a great help to turn abstract concepts into concrete knowledge.

Science: ShareCare & 3dRudder



Some students are “science-phobic”. The 3dRudder comes as a help to teach scientific curricula completely differently. Take the ShareCare human body application that lets you visualize organs. With your feet on the 3dRudder, you can literally explore a human heart: turn around it, enter an arteria, see pumping from the inside. Discovering becomes learning without students even noticing it.

The 3dRudder is perfectly adapted to classrooms
