Learn how they advance community-driven ideas through collaboration, design, education, and scrappy problem-solving to accelerate innovation. In our next Innovation Chat, hear why KPMG has chosen to invest innovation dollars in designing a bricks-and-mortar center in Florida, and how its learner-centric design will foster not only learning, but co-creation, collaboration, innovation, and engagement.
Immersive TechLearn Lab
Maxime Ros, CEO, and Brandon Rosenthal, Vice President, US, Revinax; Steven Skiles, Senior Manager of Learning & Development, and Bill Shafer, Manager of Learning & Development, Samsung; Christian Gossan, Director, KPMG International; Additional Demos TBA
The value and impact of immersive technology for learners is promising, yet can seem complicated, costly, and overwhelming. The key is understanding what skills are needed to develop and implement this type of technology, as well as how it fits into the future of training. Get hands-on with several examples of VR, AR, and other immersive tech to experience the possibilities first hand. Demos include:
- KPMG: Experience how KPMG's Globerunner app moved learners from the challenge of engaging with passive, paper-based, dry content to an interactive, engaging and globally scaled learning experience. Discover how they have complemented scalable and cost-efficient digital experience with physical tournaments (including their World Cup). We are likely to run a small competition for participants, as part of their use of the app.
- Samsung: Learn how Samsung's internal learning team in the U.S. has been creating DYI interactive learning 360 VR videos for on-boarding U.S. employees and helping them better understand the broader Korea-based company and its culture.
- Revinax: Experience what it's like to be in the shoes of a mechanic or a surgeon, and how organizations use Revinax's method for training technical skills from the first-person point of view. Learn to better understand how to create VR content and different models for deploying it.
