Editor’s Picks - Cool New Tools to Use

 

Missed the summer’s show schedule? Well, our editors made sure you don’t miss out on the new and the next in learning technology.

In a recent study, 2 out of 3 learning leaders have experienced virtual reality and 62% believe Virtual Reality for Learning is here to stay. A look at the trade show floors still show a surprising low number of VR vendors. But, three stood out to us.

If your are sourcing a partner to create the virtual experience Manzalab showcased a game-like simulated environment. With a nod of the head, you can select (click) and travel down a path. The other end of the spectrum is SilVR Thread founded by Hollywood cinematographers. Their virtual experience simulates the operating room, skiing down a slope with all the twists and turns you would expect in real life. Last, was a surprise at Litmos by Callidus Cloud, who hosted a Virtual Reality experience on their LMS. Yes,  LMSs can host VR for learning, ask Litmos.

Some cool stuff is affordable. 

TruScribe, creators of animation by drawing, opens its library of images for a low $50/year to any e-learning developer or instructional designer. Of course, custom images are quoted separately.
