ROI from VR: Extraordinary Case Studies That Prove It
Several clients from different business categories all had very different learning objectives. What do they have in common? They all used immersive learning to achieve jaw-dropping results. From a 400% ROI from training to up to $3,000 saved per employee and customer, the myth of VR being too expensive, too complicated, and too time-consuming ends right here. John Blackmon, the CTO of eLearning Brothers, will share examples from Transition Associates for Fendi, Illumina Interactive for a nonprofit, and Komatsu Mining, which will blow you away!

Ultrasound Training in VR: More Students Supported, $600,000 Saved
Between public safety and squeezed budgets, scaling up a training program is nearly impossible in a higher-ed clinical environment - unless you are Dr. Susanna Rudy, DNP, APRN, and Dr. Jeff Gordon, Ph.D., both from Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, and John Blackmon, CTO, of eLearning Brothers. As some of the earliest pioneers in immersive learning, they conquered what seemed impossible; they developed a program that affordably and safely trained a growing population of nurse practitioner students without purchasing more ultrasound machines for $100,000 each.

Now, less than two years later, state by state, the use of simulation in prelicensure nursing education is becoming a modern staple of training strategies in healthcare. Attend this session for an up-close look at what immersive learning can do. Find out why this eye-opening case study received a Platinum LearnX Award and was short-listed for Learning Technology’s Best Use of Simulations or Virtual Environments for Learning.

Guided VR Experiences: The Missing Piece to School Adoption
Why is VR so hard to coordinate for classrooms and trainings? How do you teach with standalone VR if you can't see what your students are doing? How do you actively engage teachers in the VR learning process?
 
In this talk, Sean Strong, CEO & Co-Founder of Grove XR, will go over the lessons learned implementing and improving VR in learning contexts. This talk will cover how Grove XR's suite of experience guiding tools — including remote launching, screen streaming, and content curation — make VR easier to use for teachers, trainers, and groups.

Vendor Session 3C: Democratizing Data with Immersion
Democratizing Data with Immersion
Justin Chow
BadVR

As we enter a time of exciting emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, and quantum computing, “Big Data” is becoming more important. However, accessing, working with, and gleaning meaningful insights from Big Data, is an ability that is relegated to a limited population of society who have proper technical training. What about the myriad people who don’t have a data science background? How can we enable them to also participate? In his presentation, Justin will discuss how complex datasets can be understood by anyone with immersive tech. His company, BadVR, works with organizations such as the UNDP, NOAA, and NSF to enable you to literally “step inside your data”. He’ll discuss the reasons how and why BadVR’s innovative platforms work and the macro implications of data democratization. Listeners will walk away knowing immersive tech will allow anyone the ability to unlock the power of data, the benefits of which extend well beyond the office place and into the global narrative of the most pressing issues of our time.
