Curtin University: The Virtual Home Visit

Learnbright1-640x403

Why we like it:

  • Good example of a VR program for learning and development available as a fully interactive demo.
  • VR mask ready e.g. Oculus.
  • Works on any smartphone, tablet or computer (you don’t have to have a Rift headset to have a go with it).
  • Scales on all devices, and as you’d expect, you can pan around 360 degrees in the house and garden to assess risks to your client from falls and accidents.
  • ‘Ambient’ (background sound) and ‘voice’ audio available with settings for each, so you can switch off the background sounds without interrupting the conversations.
  • Scenario driven with decision objects for users to select response which drives the scenario.
  • Uses gaming features to help users progress through the scenarios e.g. users progress through the conversations, they discover more about their client and ‘earn’ knowledge points.

Why we like it:

  • Good example of using Prezi for elearning.
