2013-10-16 14:03:39 - G-cube will conduct a session on Using Xbox Kinect for Delivering Experiential Learning Games, in DevLearn conference 2013.
G-Cube will lead a session at the prestigious Dev Learn Conference, Las Vegas, USA on 23rd October 2013.The session will be led by the CEO of G-Cube – Manish Gupta. The session titled ‘Using Xbox Kinect for Delivering Experiential Learning Games’ will dwell upon the emerging motion-sensing technologies and their utilization in developing learning games.
Exploring newer ways of engaging the audience, G-Cube realizes that retaining learner interest is the biggest challenge for learning managers. Over the last few years, learning interactivities have been developed by many e-Learning providers. These activities encourage the learners to interact closely with input devices, like a mouse or a touchpad. But the interactivity is limited to the use of eyes and hands only. For a
more life-like experience, newer motion-sensing technologies – like Kinect – help trainers to develop experiential games that can train learners on complex skills in a controlled, simulated environment.
G-Cube’s session on ‘Using Xbox Kinect for Delivering Experiential Learning Games’ will shed light on the advantages of experiential games and how they can be made most effective. It will also discuss in detail the technology behind Kinect and how it can be applied to learning. In addition, the challenges of working with technology and its limitations will also be discussed to help developers make an informed decision. Finally, G-Cube will also share some samples of Kinect-based learning solutions and will also explain how and where they can be implemented.
Manish Gupta, CEO of G-Cube, who will speak at the Dev Learn Conference, says, “Exploring newer technologies to develop modern learning solutions is our passion at G-Cube. We have witnessed how Kinect-based games have taken the world by storm. The technology that has created games for entertainment can be molded to create learning interactivities as well. The immersive nature of these interactivities has given us a new playing field to explore ways of engaging the learners, and it is a pleasure to share our experiences at a prestigious platform like Dev Learn.”
