App Update: February 26, 2022

Student Access Key

For added security, students are now required to enter their organization's Student Access Key to enter the Immerse application. This means that when students update their headset to the latest version of Immerse, they will be prompted to enter an access key before they can begin.
 
Note: Access keys are different than lesson codes.  Access keys need only be input into the Immerse app once by a student. They are not used to enter a lesson.

An additional benefit of this added layer of security is the ability to white-label the student menu with your school's logo. Students will see your logo as soon as they input your organization's Student Access Key.

If you are an Immerse partner school, you have already been assigned a Student Access Key that should be sent to your students.
 
If you are an administrator at your institution and you are unsure of the Student Access Key assigned to your organization please contact daniel@immerse.online.

Student Lobby

Learners can now enter the lobby before their teacher arrives! This means learners with the same lesson code can connect and socialize with one another in Immerse before their lesson begins.

To enter the student lobby before a lesson:

  • Enter your lesson code.
  • Select "Join Lobby."
