Virtual Reality – Augmented Reality – Mixed Reality & Demystifying Responsive Design

Saturday, Sep 16, 2017

Time: 9:00am - 1:30pm

Presentation 1: Virtual Reality – Augmented Reality – Mixed Reality

Is Your Technical Curriculum Ready?

At this meeting, we will demystify the alphabet soup of VR – AR – MR and provide you with “hands on” experience with the tools used in successful learning and performance pilot projects. Afterwards, we will invite your participation in roundtable discussion about their practical application in formal training and the workplace.

As an industry professional, you probably already have some awareness of the potential of this technology, so why is this topic important? We believe you will recognize in the presented case studies that a tipping point may be upon us for their application.

An important part of the mission of the ISPI-LA chapter is to keep you informed about the latest trends in learning technology and to encourage the exchange of great ideas that you can take away from a meeting and apply in your professional practice.

Denso Case Study

Denso is a global leader in the automotive market space. You will hear about and experience their just completed pilot project using the Microsoft Hololens as a tool to provide hands free, step by step, guided instruction to technicians rebuilding vehicle components. The device places a hologram next to the real component and responds to the technician’s voice commands to provide guidance for disassembly and reassembly of the rebuilt component.

Join us for this exciting journey into the next chapter in learning technology.

Presentation 2: Demystifying Responsive Design

Do you feel like you need a magic decoder ring to unlock the impact that Responsive Design will have on your next training development project?

This presentation, Demystifying Responsive Design, will share key information and techniques to unlock the mystery of Responsive Design from the perspective of a practicing Subject Matter Expert (Kristen Derr) who has over 10 years hands-on experience in this field.

This session will illustrate how Responsive Design is impacted by several simultaneous trends:

  • Online learning technologies are undergoing significant modernization.

  • Responsive Designs affects e-Learning and dual use of assets for micro learning.

  • Imperfect tools, sales hype, etc. have all generated a lot of confusion that is a point of pain for migrating legacy Flash courses as well as planning future development.

This session will review these and other changes. More important, this session will strip away the hype and Demystify Responsive Design, providing you with the insights and techniques that will help enable you to be more effective.
