606 BYOD: Scan and Embed: Using Mobile 3-D Scanning Tools
12:45 PM - 1:45 PM Wednesday, June 26
Currently, you can find copyright-free 3-D objects available for varying costs, or even free on the internet. However, these 3-D objects do not resemble YOUR products or desired object examples. There are software packages that will allow you to create your own 3-D objects, but there is generally a steep learning curve or high amount of artistic and programming skill sets required to use them. The cost to purchase the entire software package does not equal the time and profits lost learning how to utilize the tool. But what if you could create 3-D objects using your own products and desired object examples with minimum artistic and programming skill sets?
In this session, you will explore how you can use your smartphone to scan and create 3-D objects from YOUR products or desired object examples. Minimum artistic skills will be required, with absolutely no programming involved. What can you do with your newly created 3-D objects? Using minimum programming skills, you will learn how to embed them into a deployable medium that can be shared in both digital and print formats.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to cut training costs using mobile 3-D scanning tools to replicate costly physical products
- How smartphones can be used to create 3-D objects
- How to deploy 3-D objects for use in training or advertisement
- How to use augmented reality to engage learners of varying technical skills and technical backgrounds
Designers, developers, managers
Technology discussed in this session:
Zappar/ZapWorks, Qlone app, smartphones
A smartphone (iOS or Android) with the Qlone and Zappar apps downloaded before this session. Participants will also need a laptop (Mac or PC) with ZapWorks Studio downloaded and installed.
Senior Curriculum Developer
Cherie Cornelius is a senior curriculum developer with Aristocrat Technologies. Several years ago, she shifted from technical support to the realm of training. A year into her training role, Cherie’s artistic flair in a PowerPoint presentation caught the eye of management, who suggested she join the curriculum development team. Cherie had no formal training in this field, but she was eager to learn and has since gone back to school for a master’s degree in instructional design.
Jerron “JT” Thornton is a curriculum developer with Aristocrat Technologies. JT has over 10 years of instructional design and curriculum development experience, focusing on eLearning web and mobile development and human capital. He has worked in a variety of learning institutions, including the Florida Career College, Florida International University, Miami Dade College, University of Miami, and the University of Nevada¬–Las Vegas. JT holds a BS in computer information systems, an MS in career and technical education, and an MBA. He is working on his dissertation in pursuit of a doctorate in higher education learning technology.
