X2O Media Partners with FutureDJs to Deliver #Immersive Remote Learning Experiences
X2O Media today announced a global partnership with pioneering music education company FutureDJs to deliver an immersive remote learning experience. X2O Media, part of the STRATACACHE family of marketing technology companies, and FutureDJs will make world class music education widely accessible globally, all powered by X2O Media’s virtual classroom technology.
FutureDJs are providing a dynamic way to support teaching music, making music education globally accessible with their Virtuoso classroom, built on top of the core X2O Virtual Classroom, a next generation immersive remote learning solution. Partnering with X2O Media for the technology to bring advanced remote learning experiences, FutureDJs have now found a dynamic way to bridge the knowledge gap, support the teaching of music and reshape music education across the world.
The X2O Virtual Classroom offers an unparalleled experience similar to that of in-classroom participants. The scalable solution enables up to 120 remote participants to appear at one time on avatar displays with directional audio and dedicated cameras. FutureDJs’ students will be able to learn from world class teachers and professional DJs either face-to-face or remotely, making learning accessible to everyone, wherever they are in the world.
“With DJ decks, MC’ing and electronic music all now recognized as part of the National Curriculum in the United Kingdom, we have been preparing to launch our Virtuoso classroom to reimagine the classroom of the future, and that future is now. Our industry has been turned upside down. Artists, DJs, musicians and visiting music teachers globally are suddenly without work and questioning the future,” Austen Smart, CEO of FutureDJs said.
In 2016 my partners and I noticed that UK exam boards AQA, OCR and Eduqas were recognising DJ decks as a musical instrument alongside the piano, violin or guitar and that made them a potential part of music GCSE!
