The Environment is Virtual, The Experience is Real
Envision Experience, a client we’ve had the opportunity to create VR educational experiences for, shared their “learning by doing” approach to VR, in the form of a 3 part series intended to help educators who want to embed VR in their lessons to avoid pitfalls and roll-out the sort of engaging learning opportunities that VR can offer students of all ages.
Envision’s NYLF Advanced Medicine and Health Care program, held on the Johns Hopkins University campus, uses VR technology to put students into a virtual operating room with the sights and sounds of what performing a bone fracture reduction surgery would actually be like. Paired with a hands-on simulation to actually cut open, fix, and then suture for a bone fracture, the VR experience gives a real view into the OR experience for this type of surgical event.
In part 1 of the series, they dive into how VR helps students to experience possible future careers and how to begin to implement this technology in the classroom.
Part 2 of this series covers their review of how VR was used at Envision’s NYLF Advanced Medicine and Health Care program, held on the Johns Hopkins University campus.
Harnessing the Power of AR with Magic Leap
We’re excited to be working on our first Magic Leap Augmented Reality application. We can’t say much about it yet, but stay tuned and we’ll be sure to post more details in the months ahead. If you’re interested in exploring an AR application with us, we’ve got the gear.
With your support, we hope to continue building top quality VR and AR experiences for another 5 years and beyond. Please send us a note to get started on your project!
At your service,
Founder and CEO
