AR & VR in Education - Going Beyond the Page!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what would an interactive picture be worth? What about an entire interactive world where you can learn, play, and experiment in a safe environment?

Student engagement is not only a 21st century buzz word, it is an important step in getting students to take on the responsibility of their own learning. Engaging students is not a new issue but, thanks to technology, there are now new ways to bring more engaging content to students – one example is through AR and VR.

These new technologies are allowing students to get inside the content and learn from a different perspective - giving them a better understanding. Initial research is showing much improved engagement from the student’s perspective. Join us for some ideas on using AR and VR to go beyond the page and improve your students' engagement.

  • Design as Strategy: Thoughts on User Experience and Virtual Reality Apr 27 2017 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    David Mullett, VR Thought Leader
    As the digital experience proliferates in everyday life and we begin to migrate into the new virtual reality medium, how do we create the most human and organic digital experience?

    Moving forward, digital devices not only grow smaller and closer to the body, but daily use time explodes. The challenge is using design strategies around user experience to mitigate consumer pain points to allow for seamless immersion in your experience or VR product.

    We will talk about how about how design must be incorporated as a process and strategy in VR builds for success.

  • Exploring Mobile VR: Insights and Strategy Recorded: Nov 30 2016 36 mins
    David Mullett, Virtual Reality Content Innovator, Virtualize: david@virtualizevr.com
    Mobile VR is going to be far and away the largest market for virtual reality in both the immediate term and as the VR market expands. This is where VR is going to come in and disrupt entrenched competition in the digital landscape. Currently less than 1% of PCs worldwide are powerful enough to run the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, so producing VR for low end hardware specs on Mobile VR is going to be the best strategy for accessing large numbers of consumers. 5G and expanding wifi is going to explode current bandwidth limitations and be the backbone for next generation Mobile VR experiences. Together with the new WebVR format, 5G and Mobile VR will be the place to build your disruptive VR application and open up a whole new realm of solution, acquisition, and engagement. Through social VR, sharing, avatars, and solutions-based VR, Mobile VR is going to be the brand of VR that changes the world. What can you build in VR that has the same value, or more value, than non-VR applications?
  • Augmented Construction: How Virtual Environments are Impacting the Physical Recorded: Nov 30 2016 48 mins
    Rob Charlton, CEO, Space Group & Adam Ward, Director, BIM Technologies
    In an age of perpetual advancing technology, it’s often difficult to keep up with what’s going to be the “next big thing”.

    Traditional construction methods are fast being overtaken by modern building processes, and what we’re now terming; digital construction.

    As industry innovators, we’re championing the leap from digital construction to augmented construction. There is scope for augmented reality to play a major role in helping construction teams in the field understand how various systems and components fit together during production. But more importantly, it can facilitate a route for architects to take their designs into a virtual environment before the high risk move to construction.

    The current process for a structure is that it is designed in 3D, transferred to 2D documents and then built in a virtual

    3D format. The transition from 3D to 2D and back again can often lead to errors, therefore, what if we could cut this middle step out altogether?

    Just imagine being able to put on an AR headset and see exactly which line on a 2D construction document corresponds to a given object, such as a section of pipe or cable network. Being able to bring drawings into a physical model, giving a sense of scale, proportion, form and space.

    In this webinar, we’ll take you through the following:

     What is Augmented Construction

     Technological advancements and what benefits they bring to the industry

     How to use AR effectively

     What role does data play in this?

     Example projects, who’s using this now

     The next step

  • Understanding Strategies for VR/AR in Business – Methods and Cases Recorded: Nov 29 2016 49 mins
    Prof. Mark Skilton, Warwick Business School & Strategic Leader in Digital Strategy, enzen
    The session will explore how this rapidly developing area of VR / AR / Mixed Reality and its position and convergence in the areas of advanced Customer Experience, Digital Asset Management and new A.I. led augmentation strategies starting to transform processes and experience.

    We introduce a novel approach to framing digital spaces and how to measure Augmented impact on performance metrics and then explore how this is further developing into A.I. Intelligent spaces and what this may mean for Business Operating Models and future work automation design in what is described as Intelligent Business Strategy.

    We include a few actual cases studies of how Cyber-physical systems driving “Digital Twins” are extending across processes and changing supply chain feedback and interaction for smart energy, smart design and new knowledge capabilities.
  • Hacking the Brain: Unlocking the power of NeuroVR Recorded: Nov 29 2016 48 mins
    Luciana Carvalho Se, Chief Evangelist, Racefully & Founder SE3 Solutions
    Can immersive reality actually help us better understand each other? Understand ourselves? How does human cognitive processing change, or become enhanced, once VR and AR are added to the mix?

    What does that mean for our (future) sense of self? What is the impact of literally ‘putting oneself in somebody else’s shoes’ and what that means for human empathy?

    Exploring recent findings on the treatment of phobias, PTSD and mental health issues using VR, and theories around the virtual-physical illusion of presence, this webinar asks how neuroscience has been affected and/or advanced by the development of immersive tech.
  • The Business of Virtual Reality Recorded: Nov 29 2016 48 mins

  • Social Platforms for Virtual Reality Recorded: Nov 29 2016 39 mins
    Alice Bonasio, Technology Author and Journalist
    There is an arms race going on in the Virtual Reality world, and the stakes couldn’t be higher.

    In the upcoming VR boom, the platform that enables user-generated virtual experiences that are both social and shareable will become the next Facebook. And although we shouldn’t count Facebook itself out of this picture, right now it’s anybody’s game to win.

    In this talk I’ll look at four of the major players working to bring social VR to the masses, what they are going to offer, and how they hope to monetize. What gives them the edge, and why should we all care?
