Understanding the VR controls

The Immerse application is fun and easy on your Meta Quest VR headset! We recommend taking our tutorials in order to learn how to use Immerse.

These tutorials teach how to:

  • Move around
  • Interact with objects
  • Use your Backpack
  • Understand Classes
  • Navigate your Learning Journey

We highly recommend that you practice before you go to your first class, the Commons, or the Explore areas.

  2. Click the Tutorial tab.
