Prima Facia means Trust in Life
Learning is a social endeavor. Peer-to-peer interactions are crucial. All other software falls short. Interactive social environments require individual mobility and private/semi-private cross-talk capability.
Enhancements to create a SOCIALLY ENABLING INTERFACE.
VIDEO ENHANCEMENT - not being limited to a box.
A live stream of the user's face becomes their avatar in the VR classroom.
Users are free to move and interact with others. Movement is similar to RPGs.
Individualized instruction and ad hoc groups are fully enabled.
AUDIO ENHANCEMENT - hearing like real life.
"On stage" audio is broadcast to all users.
Audio can be localized to only hear peers who are virtually near, permitting more natural interactions.
Teachers may localize their audio output for individualized instruction.
User’s face is streamed into the system. Background is ignored. Static pictures are not allowed. No data is stored.
This interface can be stand-alone or replace a current LMS interface.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
I first developed this idea while building the world's first Internet-based Training Management and Delivery System for pharmaceutical companies in an FDA regulated environment (1999 to 2000). The idea for this system, while not technologically feasible then, seemed a natural fusion between the real and the virtual. Today's technology is imminently capable. Every smartphone can be a fully interactive classroom. The human need to be heard has never dimmed.
