AR and VR learning is an efficient knowledge transfer solutions, i.e. students understand faster, remember longer, and decide therefore better,” stated Dan Lejerskar, Chairman, EON Reality, Inc.

The event was hosted and organized by the University of Alberta Faculties of Engineering, Medicine & Dentistry, Rehabilitation Medicine, and Science. VR After Dark presented a series of micro-talks on the opportunities for Virtual and Augmented Reality in education, training, and healthcare.

Martin Ferguson-Pell, a professor in the Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine and organizer of the event said: “We were delighted that over 250 faculty and students came to hear the presentations and learn about the exciting potential of virtual and augmented reality for healthcare applications. The participants saw examples of 3D visualization to support learning in the health professions and most importantly actual applications of VR/AR in the delivery of advanced clinical care for the treatment of head and neck cancer, cardiac surgery and rehabilitation.”

The University’s goal is to become an early leader in the development of high quality virtual content that goes beyond gaming into education, training, and simulation. The event’s purpose was to educate the public, students, and anyone interested in Virtual and Augmented Reality, about the work of professors from around campus in this field, and learn about the potential opportunities.

    I am the manager of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and am looking to grow my wholesale side of company. I really hope that someone at targetdomain share some guidance 🙂 I considered that the most ideal way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape stores and cbd retailers. I was hoping if anybody could suggest a qualified site where I can purchase CBD Shops B2B Database I am presently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the very best solution and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
