702 Web Conferencing Reimagined: Virtual Reality and Immersive Learning
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Wednesday, June 27
Immersive learning platforms use virtual reality headsets to enable new kinds of teaching and learning. Unlike traditional web conferencing tools, these new platforms transport users into a shared virtual space that allows them to use their hands to build and manipulate 3-D objects, become immersed together inside a 360 video, and investigate 3-D models.
In this session, you will experience the virtual reality equivalent of Zoom, WebEx, and Collaborate and glimpse the future of web conferencing and immersive learning for online courses. You will be introduced to two platforms—Vizible and Mursion—and learn how they can be used to transform the online course experience, including career and technical education, auto repair programs in community colleges, and nursing and teacher education programs. Finally, you will be invited to brainstorm use cases and applications of the technology.
In this session, you will learn:
- About new opportunities in online education
- About the VR collaboration platforms Vizible and Mursion
- How these platforms enable new kinds of teaching and learning
- How instructional design practices can enable hands-on learning
Designers, developers, managers, and senior leaders (directors, VPs, CLOs, executives, etc.).
Technology discussed in this session:
