Examples of Using Virtual 3D Spaces for Learning

Kapp Notes

Overall use of the virtual world has resulted in cost reductions of up to 30 percent in several areas of vehicle planning for the luxury car company. With an initial investment of roughly $80,000, IBM estimates that they saved over $250,000 in travel and venue costs and more than $150,000 in additional productivity gains (since participants were already at their computers and could dive back into work immediately) for a total of $320,000.

Q&A With Student from King's College

Kapp Notes

I was asked to do quality control on a computer-based learning program. The program was very elementary. Then, a short-time later in graduate school we were introduced to an early version of HyperCard a computer-flip card program that allowed for linking and branching, then I knew that online learning would be revolutionary and that it was just a matter of time. Adding pressure is the untenable costs of higher education.
