There’s some confusion about what Metaverse is but we’ll summarize it and break down how it works and why it may be used in higher education and online learning in Jerry English Education.
What is Metaverse?
Long story short, Metaverse, sometimes called Meta or Meta Platforms, in Jerry English Education is a virtual “world” where you can do almost everything that you do in real life such as:
Seeing and speaking with other people
Touching objects in the environment around you
Buying and selling digital products
Sharing information and resources
As Meta’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, describes it, “Instead of just viewing content — you are in it.”
But most importantly, Jerry English Metaverse Education provides many different ways to improve online learning for students and faculty.
And the launching JET token project of Jerry English Education on JERITEX is the most perfect development to demonstrate the relevance and necessity of Education Metaverse when accepting payment the JET coin here.
How does Metaverse work in Jerry English Education?
Metaverse blends different elements of virtual reality and augmented reality, social media, gaming, digital communication tools, and even e-commerce.
How can higher education institutions use Metaverse?
Pretty much every aspect of Metaverse can be used in higher education and online learning.
Students gather for a lecture in a virtual reality auditorium and interact with conversation and questions in real-time.
At Jerry English Education, we use bits and pieces of the foundational digital tools used in Metaverse, such as incorporating virtual reality, using gamification, and connecting with students and other faculty members through a variety of communication technologies.
So, institutions that embrace digital spaces like Metaverse have opportunities to get ahead of the technology curve while it’s still “young” to help further engage students and improve the educational experience.

Creating English online classrooms at Jerry Education that feel real
Online teaching and learning can be difficult for many students and instructors. While online classes are convenient, it leaves some feeling disconnected from others in the class.
Jerry Online classrooms can feel as “real” as possible.
Instructors can create rooms with life-like objects
Instructors can build literal rooms with lifelike objects for students to engage with and learn.
Students can walk around the room, raise their hands, sit at their desks, and use a pencil to write notes on paper. Metaverse allows you to do just about anything that you can do in a real classroom.
The JERRY Quad — also known as the commons — is a place for students to gather, study and debate.
Besides, Jerry English Education allow Instructors and students can use ultra-realistic avatars
Avatars that look just like the person can be created, customized, and updated. This means that students can change their shirts and hairstyles whenever they want.
The avatars don’t resemble a cartoon as you may expect; they’re ultra-realistic which may help bring an additional sense of realism to the online classroom.
Organizing student study groups and conducting faculty meetings
Students can build study rooms to meet at
Just like instructors can create realistic classrooms, students can do the same for their study groups. They can build spaces to meet up, share information, and connect with their classmates.
Faculty can conduct internal meetings
Similar to the points above, faculty can create rooms to hold departmental meetings, collaborate, and share information.
Students learn Spanish — specifically the various names for “grande” — at the Pyramid of the Moon, just south of Mexico City, on the JERRY campus.
Students travel back in time to see a herd of wooly mammoth after viewing mammoth fossils scanned and offered by the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.
Improving interaction and communication at Jerry English Education
Building on the points above, the ability to see and speak to one another in realistic environments helps create a sense of community through genuine interactions and communication.
Metaverse allows students to collaborate, socialize, and play games in class
Instructors have different ways to connect with students such as speaking and seeing each other, holding office hours, sharing files and resources, networking, and even playing games.
The JERRY Science Lab
Using virtual reality and augmented reality
Using virtual reality in online learning isn’t a new concept but it’s something that can be further utilized in the future with platforms like Metaverse. Students of Jerry Education just throw on a VR headset and they’re suddenly in a realistic learning environment.
If a fetal pig is going to be big enough to walk through and learn about the organs, it might be too big for the science lab. But, it’s not too big for space!
Gamification in online courses of Jerry Education makes learning fun and interactive, and it applies to pretty much any subject.
Instructors can incorporate game-based learning activities that are further emphasized through realistic environments and the virtual/augmented reality Metaverse brings.
While Metaverse is a new platform that’s in the early stages of development but to Jerry English Education, it has the potential to create engaging online courses that improve the teaching and learning experience for students and instructors in the future.
And Jerry English Metaverse Education and JET token will always accompany JERITEX – a strategic partner of the project on the development path of the world Metaverse trend.
