Featuring Google Cardboard, Samsung VR and Oculus Rift learning applications.
Many believe that virtual reality is the next major computing platform after the smart phone, including Facebook’s Mark Zuckerburg. A new generation of virtual reality headsets and software promises to revolutionize learning. The feeling of being in another place brings immersion to new levels. “It’s like the difference between looking out through a window and actually walking out and moving around in the world,” said Gronstedt.
Anders Gronstedt, Ph.D., President, The Gronstedt Group, Inc. will deliver his keynote address: “Next Gen Learning: The Virtual Reality Experience” at Enterprise Learning! Conference 2016 (ELC16) which is produced by Elearning! Media Group. More than talking heads, this session will immerse attendees into the virtual reality experience.
“We are honored to have a leader in virtual reality learning not only reveal the future of virtual technology, but take us into the immersive virtual reality experience as well,” said Catherine Upton, ELC 2016 conference chair.
At ELC16, attendees will experience live virtual reality learning via Oculus Rift and their own personal Google Cardboard. Gronstedt will demonstrate the training implications of virtual reality in learning. He will showcase a high-end learning experience via Oculus Rift and take the audience on a tour of the virtual realm. Then, each attendee will experience 360 degree applications, as well as open-source learning content and apps via Google Cardboard Viewers. From high-end customized learning, to low cost open-source resources, attendees will experience virtual reality like never before. The virtual experience user experience is far more visceral than anything experienced on a screen.
Gronstedt will also be exploring the augmented reality technology which is on the heels of virtual reality. It’s the lens to the world that that superimposes digital graphics over the world around you.
