Deal Moves Teaching Simulator Developed at UCF into Private Sector

A UCF team of researchers who developed an interactive simulator to train teachers announced a deal Thursday that will expand the technology and take it into the private sector.

The immersive TeachLivE simulator uses lifelike – and sometimes sassy – teenage avatars who interact with real student-teachers before they step into a real classroom. At TeachLive’s annual conference on the UCF campus, the team announced a public-private partnership with Mursion, a San Francisco startup that recently secured $1 million in seed funding from New Schools Venture Fund to accelerate the venture. Mursion will scale up the technology with a continued focus on education, while expanding the training tool into health care, hospitality and other fields.
