Research History

Back to the story

Visual Classrooms used to be known as InterLACE, which stood for Interactive Learning And Collaboration Environment, so all of the research papers refer to the platform by this name.

As much as we loved the name, nobody could remember it and it said nothing about what we do, so upon spinning the technology off from Tufts we re-branded to Visual Classrooms.
