The Unreal Engine’s Place in Virtual Learning

No matter how interesting online images, videos, and infographics are, they often require the learner to remain separated from the content by a computer screen. But what if learners could dive right into a 3-D scenario? The Unreal Engine and virtual reality makes this possible.

Plan for Your Influencers

As a learning leader you are always trying to “influence” the audience you are responsible for training.
