Augmenting Human Performance at Scale
Prof. Fridolin Wild, The Open University
17 June 2021
Why settle for inadequate instruction if you can learn complicated tasks from experts in a field? Wearable Enhanced Learning with e-textiles and eXtended Reality (XR) enable an individual to see the world through the eyes of experts, step into their shoes, hear their guidance, or hold their hands. In this talk, Prof. Wild explains how XR can be employed to rapidly advance from novice to mastery in a number of fields.
This talk was delivered as part of the (en)coding Heritage Seminar Series, which brough together researchers working at the cutting edge of digital technologies, humanities and heritage science. The session was dedicated to Immersive Technologies: Transforming Education in the Digital Age. The full programme can be found here.
Organised and chaired by Dr Lia Costiner (University of Oxford) and Dr Leonardo Impett (Durham University) for the (en)coding Heritage Network, in collaboration with the Oxford X-Reality Hub.
