How Virtual Reality Will Disrupt Education and Training for the Skilled Trades with Mike Christian



Mike Christian

Virtual reality (VR) has the potential to significantly reduce the costs of learning while increasing retention and the depth of knowledge.  Education and training that currently depend on physical locations are being disrupted.  

Whether you are involved in education and training for skilled trades or are interested in the opportunities of VR, join Mike Christian as he discusses the ins and outs of working with VR.

    Session Description

    Find out why vocational schools, as we know them, may soon go the way of the dinosaur as physical locations fail to face the growing challenges that the pandemic accelerated. VR can meet those challenges.

    • Learn what the current state of the art is in VR capabilities and the pitfalls to avoid when working with a VR developer.
    • See current examples of the disruption that is already under way and why learners are embracing this change.
    • There are many cost considerations that should be considered when developing a VR curriculum. Discover what these costs are and learn what the potential returns on investment can be.

    Vive la VR Révolution!
