10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Friday, July 28
Two of the more important elements in quality eLearning are interactivity and storytelling. Virtual reality enables you to take those two elements to new heights, but it also presents new and unique challenges.
In this session, you will learn the story behind The Price of Freedom, a mind-bending spy drama that takes place entirely in VR. You will learn about the challenges that came up in building the game and how the storytelling evolved. You will learn about what makes VR storytelling unique, and how to harness VR platforms to create new and immersive experiences.
