Remote Options Just Got More Interesting

With the advent of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), there has never been a better time to add one to your e-learning curriculum. From simple to complex, we can build it.

Explaining the Difference

To the uninitiated, the terms Virtual Reality, i.e. VR, and Augmented Reality, i.e. AR, are often used interchangeably. This is incorrect! Allow us to explain the distinction, as your needs might vary depending on your use case.

Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality involves complete isolation from the outside world, transporting the user to a new virtual space. Users can have VR with and without controllers, and must use specialized headsets, such as those from HTC, Valve, Meta and more.

Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality does not isolate a user, but rather brings to life something in their real world space, such as a 3D object or pop-out video. This is often more accessible, as most phones can support this feature (e.g. Pokemon GO).

The "Metaverse"

This refers only to the space Meta (formerly known as Facebook) is attempting to create in a virtual space. While there is much hype around the topic, the key takeaway here is the social aspect that AR/VR may have to offer.

Easy Option: VR Video

Unsure, or have a tight budget?  AllSumJobs offers production of VR video, a technology that has been around since the start of VR itself. With 3D VR cameras, we can film with a 360 camera that captures the whole room and leads to more immersion than a standard video.  A budget option, this can still go a long way towards improving your content.

VR and AR Applications

For those with an itch for app development, AllSumJobs has partnerships with VR/AR development teams that can build a virtual app using the popular development tools Unity and Unreal Engine 5. These projects can range greatly in price, so be sure to contact us directly for consultation and estimated prices.

Course Integration

VR and AR are simply tools to meet an end, but AllSumJobs acknowledges that these tools need to suit a curricular focus. Lectures, assessments, and more, need to be integrated in and around these tools, and we offer a comprehensive package such that any individual tool isn’t without it’s lesson plan, activities, and assessments.

On VR/AR

Learning and experience in virtual environments can make indelible impressions on participants. Whether its using an Oculus/Meta Headset; an augmented reality app on our phones, or an interactive experience through a computer, our minds are naturally wired to think in terms of personal experiences and interactions with others.

The virtual world can create characters and experiences that replicate real world scenarios in a safe and challenging way; offering opportunities for testing the limits of our patience, specific skills, and priming us for challenges we may soon face. While its not possible to transplant memories or skills; we can all share the same virtual experience that stimulates our memory, challenges us to react in a professional role, and get valuable feedback on our performance. 

The Oculus Quest can immerse participants in both 360 degree videos or put people who are geographically far apart in the same shared space. We can recreate emotionally strong experiences, empathize with the experiences of others; explore case studies in realistic depth; test specific responses to decision making scenarios; role play from various perspectives; and experience what its like to succeed or fail in a safe environment.

Augmented reality can make on link professional experiences to their current environment. This is another interactive feature that pulls the participant deeper into the experience of solving real word problems. Using the engagement methods use in game design taps the natural motivation of people accustomed to rapid feedback, the desire to demonstrate competence, and build confidence.
