Welcome to the Fieldscapes Wiki and Help Pages!
Fieldscapes is Daden's 3D and VR Immersive Learning application and service. It allows students to undertake a wide variety of immersive learning exercises from field trips in Wet English Valleys, to ones on Mars, as well as time-travel journeys to historical sites and events, and vocational training in hospitals and factories. Most importantly it allows teachers and tutors (and parents) to create their own exercises, share them with other users, and (persmission allowing) let other users customise those lessons for their own needs.
Anyone with ICT skills and a logical mind should be able to create or customise exercises using our library of locations, exercise props and the PIVOTE authoring system. If you really do need to create a new landscape or set of props (called an inventory) then that will require some knowledge of Unity3D (an industry standard application), but that is well within the capability of many Games/Computer science students and departments (at school, college or University) - so go make some friends!
To learn more, including detailed instructions on how to use the system as a user or author, just follow one of the links below.

There is the curated Exercise Directory of what is currently available on Fieldscapes - in time exercise listings, ratings and reviews will be dynamic within the application.
