Greetings, NSVR listeners! (And readers, or whatever.) This week’s show is based on a couple of presentations I had the opportunity to give in Portland, OR over the past two weeks. In lieu of having a guest on the show for this episode, I thought I’d just combine the two, and throw in some extra visual aids. This is a “101” level overview of VR, AR and 360 technologies that I and many others have found useful. Ready?

It’s not every day you discover one of the world’s foremost leaders of VR-assisted learning right in your own back yard, but that’s exactly what I found with Industrial Training International (ITI), thanks to a recent write-up about the company on RoadtoVR.com.
Based in Woodland, WA, just a stone’s throw from Portland, OR, ITI has been has been in the industrial training business since 1986. They work with companies and organizations of great consequence, from utility providers to the federal government and beyond, and teach engineers and heavy equipment operators how to use the massive machines that make colossal-scale construction and maintenance possible. For decades, they have provided hands-on training using real equipment at their eight training centers around the globe, and are now releasing one of the most impressive VR simulators the industry has ever seen.

The Essential Role Of Human Interaction In VR-Assisted Learning, with Dr. Carrie Straub of Mursion – Show 4
Dr. Carrie Straub joins us in this show to discuss the role of real human interaction in virtual reality training simulations. Instructional designers have become adept in crafting training programs for the purpose of transferring repeatable information through LMS and similar e-learning programs, but teaching emotional, interpersonal skills (“EQ”) for career-specific applications is a profoundly greater challenge.
