Post-Zoom, a VR Boom? Immersive Technologies, Corporate Training, and Education

Description

Businesses have boarded the XR bandwagon in the areas of marketing/user experience as well as employee onboarding and training, largely using asynchronous simulations or immersive experiences. Early XR adoption in university courses seems to be either from a technical skill building perspective or from an angle of exploring the possibilities of immersive technologies. Synchronous learning in VR is largely overlooked at present, yet has many untouted benefits such as the ability to recreate the magic of community, shared knowledge, and belonging, which in-person training and education offered learners for decades. Learning in VR synchronously can be a meaningful way of enhancing immersive technology adoption in academia and industry. This panel will discuss the various dimensions of integrating VR as the post-Zoom frontier in education and corporate training.
