7:15 AM Workshop B: Building Next Generation Training Systems

Economists and theorists have stated since 1991 that, “Virtual reality will revolutionize the way we live. It lets you travel to places you’ve never been and see things you’ve never seen and do things you’ve never done, without ever leaving the room.” (Korn Ferry Institute, Sept 2017). With the constant hype around virtual realities often putting off employers to begin testing the implementation process, we must accept that these new design and training programs will eventually take over the learning and development space across nearly all industries. Sales of headsets have hit 1 million sales according to Forbes and is expected to grow to a staggering 81.2 million units by 2021. (Nov. 2017). How do we create the next generation of training for learning?
This deep-dive will accelerate attendees’ L&D Immersive tech aspirations and will explore how to:
·       Delve into the differences and various ways people obtain information and learn
·       Develop a training curriculum for your organization
·       Create consistent and structured training models
·       Implement augmented reality technology to enhance your learning and development modules
·       Trial different headset examples and discussing benefits vs. limitations


1:45 PM Exploring Simulated Environments in Education and Training

·Simulations in an immersive VR environment, a use of the technology that truly brings the benefits of VR forward in training
·An overview of specific VR settings including branching, updates in voice interfaces, and when and whether 360 video is better than fully rendered VR
·Introduce some early frameworks to help you think through managing the creation of VR training simulations
