VR TOOLBOX DEVELOPS QUICKTIME VR CURRICULUM FOR EDUCATORS

Pittsburgh, PA, June 3, 1999 -- VR Toolbox, Inc. has just announced
the completion of a long-awaited adjunct to multimedia
education..."The VR Toolbox Curriculum"...workbook for teaching
interactive imaging. "The VR Toolbox Curriculum," subtitled
"building better learning with immersive media," is a powerful asset
for every teacher involved with desktop multimedia. Written as a
companion piece for VR Toolbox's outstanding line of QuickTime VR
products, "The VR Toolbox Curriculum" is the first publication
produced specifically as QTVR curriculum for today's educator.

"The VR Toolbox Curriculum" addresses a definite need in the Academic
market, a methodology of instruction developed specifically for the
teaching of immersive imaging, one of the fastest-growing segments
within the multimedia world. "The VR Toolbox Curriculum" is divided
to address three sets of needs: tutorials, guidance and samples. The
book includes tutorials which guide learners through the essential
steps for generating QTVR movies. It contains in-depth guidance and
support for project-based learning as well as traditional direct
instruction. Sample projects are included with with concrete examples
of immersive media supporting standards based learning. The authors
include two projects that model sample QTVR enhanced lesson
components within reach of innovative teachers, whether they are
looking to revolutionize their teaching, extend their reach to
distant audiences or simply jump start their presentations.

The new VR Toolbox product suite, The VR Worx is well-rounded to the
needs of today's educator, and meets all of the following
requirements:
o Easy for beginners to use while affording experts the control they demand
o Available complete or as separate titles to meet specific needs and budgets
o Available in both Macintosh and Windows formats
o Consistent interface shared by all three applications
o Provides everything needed to complete lessons in this book -
single and multi-node panoramas and object movies from raw image files
o Strong technical product support

The VR Worx is comprised of the technologies found in the company's
three stand alone products, built into a single comprehensive
interface. The basic tools found in The VR Worx are for creating
object movies, panoramic movies and multi-node movies. Respectively,
the stand alone versions of these products are VR ObjectWorx, VR
PanoWorx and VR SceneWorx.

Who should read this book? Teachers who facilitate student learning
in core academic areas through project-based learning and computer
assisted instruction, Media Technologists and Technology Coordinators
who assist secondary teachers and students with the creation of
curriculum, projects and portfolios, and Technology Teachers who have
need of curricular materials and planning guidance for one, two or
three week immersive media modules.

"The VR Toolbox Curriculum" is a superb effort. VR Toolbox has
succeeded in giving the Technology Teacher and the Multimedia Student
one of the most important aids missing in the classroom today, a
complete, easy to read, enjoyable curriculum for QuickTime VR.

As the authors put it, "The goal of this workbook is to help
educators appropriately select and effectively integrate QuickTime VR
into their curricula in a way that enhances learning. It is designed
to meet the needs of a broad spectrum of teaching styles. There is a
danger that some may embrace new technologies because they are
"cool." Certainly the intrinsic appeal of multimedia can be leveraged
to motivate learners but those that use technology as nothing more
than a diversion or reward are missing its true power. It is our hope
that the use of QTVR will unlock imaginations and contribute to the
success of education in the 21st century."

Educators qualify for a special discount program which applies to the
pricing schedule of all VR Toolbox products. The VR Toolbox
Curriculum will be included Free of Charge with lab pack orders of
ten units or more by academic institutions. Single copy purchases of
The VR Toolbox Curriculum are $29.99. Both platforms have the same
retail pricing structure: The VR Worx sells for $299.99, VR PanoWorx
and VR ObjectWorx sell for $149.99 and VR SceneWorx sells for $89.99.
