Futuristic Technologies and Their Implications for E-Learning

Mr. Tarence highlights futuristic technologies that are being introduced into learning environments in order to create a more immersive and realistic learning experience. The combined effect of Holographics, Virtual Reality Environments, and Intelligent Learning Agents/Tutors technologies is creating blended learning scenarios that are highly effective and efficient. E-learning must evolve from "reading online" to an engaging, highly interactive medium, and this new breed of technology can be the catalyst that takes E-learning to the much needed next level. Practical methods of leveraging these technologies are explored, best practices case studies are reviewed, and demonstrations of futuristic technologies are provided throughout the conference.
