Overview

Understanding the impact that 3D environments, virtual worlds, and immersive learning spaces will have on society, business, and learning is a challenge. Corporations, academic institutions, and government agencies must develop a clear understanding of how virtual immersive environments will impact global interactions, knowledge transfer, work transactions, and existing learning paradigms.

Learning in 3D empowers forward-thinking executives, managers, faculty members, and training professionals to design, develop, and collaborate in the rapidly emerging field of 3D immersive environments.

The authors, through case studies, conceptual models, and input from dozens of industry experts, provide practical, research-based recommendations and techniques for integrating existing training, business, and computer systems into productive 3D virtual work environments. This thoughtful book contains insights into innovative methods already being used in a variety of settings by early adopters and provides a road map for creating your own successful virtual immersive environment to promote learning and collaboration.

With this indispensable resource, leaders will have the information needed to position themselves and their organizations for the up and coming technological innovation of virtual immersive environments.
