Virtual Reality Tech Company Partners With Content Provider On Science Resources

Cyber Science 3D and Cengage Learning will join forces to produce educational science products for K-12 and higher ed schools and libraries. The partnership will combine Cyber Science 3D's expertise with virtual reality tools and Gale's access to parent company Cengage Learning's educational content and resources. Cyber Science 3D will provide the platform for Gale's content.

According to representatives from both companies, the collection of integrated products will deliver more vivid content that will enhance teaching and learning. At the same time, Cengage Learning and Gale will provide Cyber Science 3D more access to markets when the first suite of products is introduced in early 2016.

"We have been interested in Cyber Science 3D's unique immersive and interactive software and educational content for quite some time," said Gale Vice President of Product Liz Mason. "We are very pleased that we will be working with their talented team as we look to expand our portfolio of science resources."

Cyber Science 3D specializes in using modeling, simulation and visualization technologies to create virtual reality content. Cengage Learning's Gale provides educational content to schools and libraries.

"We are impressed with Cengage's willingness to consider new and emerging offerings for integration into their powerful and effective product portfolio," said Cyber Science 3D President Tom Nicknish.
