3:15 PM From Immersion to Presence: How Virtual and Augmented Reality Will Disrupt Learning

The virtual and augmented reality revolution has arrived. Room-scale virtual reality offers a digital rehearsal space of such convincing verisimilitude that learners feel they are there. Two billion phones have been turned into augmented reality-powered magic lenses that can arm your workforce with superpowers. How are Fortune 500 companies driving business results by leaving the glowing rectangular screens behind to step into the virtual and augmented reality of the future? This session will deliver the answer with many case studies and demos. Learn how industry leaders are ushering in a new era of experiential and visceral learning. AR makes the real world the canvas of any number of learning activities, from scavenger hunts to performance support. Meanwhile, VR is used as a “flight simulator” for any technical task that’s too dangerous, expensive, or inconvenient to practice in real life. It is also hailed as the “ultimate empathy machine” for any soft skill training.
In this interactive session you'll watch real demos and learn: 
  • How to leverage the cost of developing for VR and AR by deploying the same simulation to desktops, tablets, and phones.
  • How to make the business case for virtual reality in healthcare.
  • How augmented reality is used for everything from new-hire orientation to performance support
