402 Connecting the Dots: Tracking Data from the Headset to the LMS & LRS
4:15 PM - 5:15 PM Tuesday, June 25
AR & VR
Imagine designing a VR experience that enables the learner to explore a 3-D world; practicing, succeeding, failing, and learning along the way. Imagine also that this passes your IT department’s security requirements and produces tons of data that is all nicely organized and presented in analytical charts that actually provide meaningful results. Designing an engaging VR experience in the headset is the "easiest" part of the solution. How do you implement and deploy in your corporate environment? How do you safely deploy content behind the firewall? Moreover, how do you connect the data from a learner's experience in the headset to the LMS? How do you implement xAPI and a LRS to gain the full spectrum of data? We'll outline how to do so.
In this session you'll learn how global companies are safely and effectively introducing VR. You will learn how data is stored in the VR devices, how to capture it in an LRS, and how to synchronize with your LMS. You'll learn how to effectively present VR data, and how companies are interpreting that data. You'll learn how standard firewalls are configured, and the advantages/risks of private cloud solutions. You'll learn about organizations that have effectively introduced VR on a global level. You'll leave this session with a broad understanding of the secrets to success and the challenges of implementing VR at an enterprise level.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to diagram your technical ecosystem
- How to design the ecosystem for VR
- How to select the tools best for your company
- How to create ROI models for VR implementation
- How to analyze VR data
- What VR technology is optimal for your environment
Technologies/platforms/devices that will be discussed:
- Headsets: Oculus, VIVE, and others
- Learning Record Store (LRS) platforms
- xAPI scripts
- Public clouds
- CGI development
- VR authoring tools
