  1. Adaptive Learning Real–World Example: Exam Preparation for Physicians
    Nick Howe, Chief Learning Officer, Area9 Lyceum
    Doctors are some of the most demanding and time­-starved workers in the world. Experience the adaptive learning solution that the NEJM Group, publishers of The New England Journal of Medicine, and Area9 built to transform medical education. In this session we will discuss why traditional approaches to education were problematic, how adaptive learning solves those problems, and the benefits that doctors have seen with the new solution.
  2. Training Technical Skills from the First-Person Point of View
    Maxime Ros,CEO; Brandon Rosenthal, Vice President, U.S. 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.
  3. Cool New PowerPoint Functions in Office 365 that will Leave You Speechless
    Richard Goring, Director, BrightCarbon
    PowerPoint has a reputation for being boring, and its functions really haven’t changed since flint was at the cutting edge of cutting edges, but things have been really different since Office 365 came along. There are tremendous gains to be had from a whole host of functions. Sadly, they’re all too often hidden away. In this demo, see how you can access graphics seamlessly, add live heatmaps and all sorts of new charts, incorporate 3D models, capture video and screen recording, convert sketches into slides, generate live subtitles as you talk, and of course, use the terrific new Morph transition to do completely astounding things in so easily that you’ll be amazed you ever tried to live without it. If you gave up on PowerPoint, now’s the time to try again. If you’re forced into using it, now’s the time to rejoice that you’re blessed with time to use it. No, really. It’s amazing what you will be able to achieve.
