3 uses of Virtual Reality in workplace education

I’m always surprised when someone makes a sweeping declaration such as “No one’s using virtual reality in the workplace” I heard this very statement recently at an e-learning conference. Yep, an e-learning conference. Virtual reality can foster empathy.

Special Report – Hacking in the MR World

eLearning 24-7

Earlier this year, I attended a VR/AR/MR conference in London, UK. I’m not concerned about hacking with Virtual Reality, nor with Augmented Reality.

Mixed Reality is the future in the immersive experience world. Here’s A Real World Scenario.

What it means that MS LifeScience Award Goes to 3D Virtual Conference Design

Event By now you've probably already heard that the Microsoft Life Sciences Innovation Award 2010 has gone to a project that uses a 3-D virtual environment to hold a virtual scientific poster session. Results measured after the poster session demonstrated that the virtual environment was effective for scientific meetings and was well accepted by the current generation of scientists, suggesting that these environments can be used to deliver immediate value.

Virtual Worlds #lrnchat

Clark Quinn

In last night’s #lrnchat , the topic was virtual worlds (VWs). This was largely because several of the organizers had recently attended one or another of the SRI/ADL meetings on the topic, but also because one of the organizers ( @KoreenOlbrish ) is majorly active in the business of virtual worlds for learning through her company Tandem Learning. The first question to be addressed was whether virtual worlds had been over or underhyped.

8 Scary and Uncomfortable Reasons for the Growth of Virtual Worlds

Kapp Notes

While I think there are many legitimate reasons why an organization should partake in virtual immersive environments (VIEs) for learning and collaboration, there are also some "less-than-comfortable" reasons organizations are leaning in this direction. They are looking for safer alternatives to meeting face-to-face and virtual worlds is an option. Video conference technology doesn't make people look good, there are glares, bad hair days and less-than-flattering outfits.
