Uncanny Valley meets the Empathy Machine: CG content Vs 360° video in immersive learning
Olivia Lory Kay, Senior Consultant

How real do we want our digital realities to be?

Learning technology is the magpie of the digital industries, picking freely from other formats to create effective learner experiences. From interactive plotlines to character driven scenarios, we help ourselves to the best bits of other media to do our work.

The latest to step into sight are the immersive technologies of AR/VR and 360° video. They provide unparalleled ability to engage learners inside rich, fully-interactive and reflective spaces.

But like all new technology they come with a new set of rules to understand. How do we unlock the potential of immersive environments while staying focused on learning objectives? Can learning solutions become too realistic, or too interactive?

This session explores research and case studies to show you how to:

  • Balance the possibilities of the Empathy Machine with the dangers of the Uncanny Valley
  • Understand how immersive technology takes control of the nervous system to create unforgettable experiences
  • Know when to use computer generated content, and when immersive video is more useful
  • Design immersive learning spaces that are believable, exciting and effective
  • Leverage biometric data to drive engagement within a compliant and ethical framework

Mapping the landscape and driving the evolution of learning technology
Mark Aberdour,

The expanding learning technology market can feel like a confusing, bewildering place. But we can work out what’s going on by finding the common features and trends the new generation of learning products share.

One clearly emerging theme is that the latest products and technologies are increasingly designed to work together in a flexible architecture of solutions. The workplace learning technology stack is now likely to include a mix of immersive learning, social learning, chat-assisted performance support, on-demand mobile-learning, end-to-end blends and tested behaviour change programmes.

How do you make sense of that kind of complexity?

Get yourself into the driving seat for those challenging learning technology implementations. This session will be packed full of data, insights, tips and techniques to help you successfully navigate the learning landscape and get the most from what’s out there, including how to:

  • Keep track of new learning technologies that are important to your organisation
  • Agile and user-centred approaches to implementation
  • Drive continuous improvement with ongoing user research
  • Measure effectiveness and improve user engagement.
