Today’s Immersive VR Buzz: VR & AR/MR for Training & Education – What have we learned?

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

Without a doubt, training, educating and guiding workers with VR and AR/MR are some of the most compelling use cases for immersive technologies.

Yet with so many different learning types and ways to measure the outcomes, ‘training’ has become somewhat of a buzzword. So, what have we learned about where XR is appropriate, and where it can provide the best returns?

On Wednesday, December 18 at 11.00 am ET, we’re running a webinar with experts from across the industry to find out how companies are using immersive technologies to improve training in their organizations, and what impacts they’re seeing

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
