Immersed Technologies

It’s tough to escape the current media hype surrounding 3-D-printing technology; this emerging technology has great potential for learning and development. If we can make 3-D-printed training aides, what else can we do with the data?

Participants in this session will explore the ways eLearning, mLearning, and instructor-led courses can leverage 3-D technology, in addition to making a strong case for the single-source authoring and multichannel publishing model. You will hear about the concept of single-source authoring and multichannel publishing and see a demonstration of how it can support eLearning, mLearning, and instructor-led workflows. Actual 3-D-printed training aides, time-lapsed video of the 3-D-printing process, and iPad demonstrations of several leading 3-D apps will drive the workflow discussions.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to get your company 3-D ready
  • The advantages and disadvantages to using engineering data (CAD) versus traditional illustrations
  • Best practices to using engineering data (CAD) versus traditional illustrations
  • How to protect company proprietary data
  • The features two industry-leading 3-D apps have to offer in learning and development
  • The options for printing in-house versus print-on-demand service bureaus

Audience:
Intermediate. This session will most benefit participants whose professional background and experience relates to course design and development of training programs. It is not necessary to have experience with 3-D technologies. 

Technology discussed in this session:
SAP Visual Enterprise Author, SAP Visual Enterprise Viewer (3-D Modeling App), SolidWorks, eDrawings (3-D Modeling App), iPad, iBooks Author, Adobe InDesign, Interactive PDFs, and 3-D-Printing technology. 

Student technology needs:
None.
