Two Opportunities to Experience #CPDinVR on August 10th 2017
I am delighted to confirm that the next opportunity to attend one of my free CPD in VR events will take place on August 10th. Once again these events will take place inside Engage from Immersive VR Education and will be open to educators worldwide. Engage can be accessed using an HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or directly from a PC. It does not currently support the Mac.
There are two distinct sessions planned for the 10th which are outlined below. When registering, please ensure that you choose the correct session and account for time differences. Educators are welcome to register for both sessions and places will be offered on a first come first served basis.
Please note that I have ended up with a waiting list for each of the previous sessions and then had people drop out. If your plans change and you are no longer able to attend the session, please contact me and let me know as soon as possible so that your place can be reassigned.
SESSION 1 - VR in Education presentation
TIME: 8pm UAE time (5pm UK time, 12pm EST)
Please note that due to popular demand, this session is a reapeat of the original CPD in VR event from June 15th and 16th this year.
“Virtual Reality: From Perception to Immersion”
In this session, Steve will explore his model for VR in education as well as outline some of the ways he has harnessed VR at JESS Dubai. He will also model some of the amazing features available in the Engage VR platform being used to deliver the session.
