EventScope enables students, teachers and the public to explore Virtualized Realities, or 3D archives of real remote locations, constructed from sensor data. EventScope delivers “Remote Experience Lessons” that consist of a “guided tour” through a Virtualized Reality based Remote Experience. At each stage of the tour [a view represented by a page], curriculum text describes the educational concept that related to the phenomenon portrayed in the view and that was further highlighted by arrow, circle or other annotations.

The creation of these “tours” required educators, artists and designers [who were non-programmers] to work closely with programmers. Coppin saw that a new kind of tools would enable content developers to create Remote Experiences on their own.

Coppin conceptualized and lead the development of a Remote Experience Authoring Tool [patent pending], to quickly and easily create curriculum as annotated “guided tours” through these Virtualized Realities so that content developers could create Remote Experience presentations without a prior background in computer programming.
