Near-life is to launch a content authoring tool for its immersive video-led training platform.
The Bolton-based firm will present Near-life CREATOR+ at this year’s DevLearn in Las Vegas as it seeks to grow globally.
“Our CREATOR+ launch takes immersive content creation to the next level, putting the power into the hands of our users. We’ve seen the huge impact VR and gamified content can have on ensuring learning is engaging and memorable,” explained Near-life CEO, Mike Todd.
“The most remarkable point of difference is how accessible this cutting-edge technology is – in terms of usability and cost. For the first time, organisations can develop their own near-to-life training scenarios with no coding skills required. Users are effectively creating their own interactive games and with our latest innovations, they’re able to assess the effectiveness with feedback and data insights from learners.”
According to figures from International Data Corporation (IDC) the VR-led training sector could be worth $4.1bn by 2024.
“The pace of digital transformation over the past 20 months has accelerated the adoption of new learning technologies,” added Geseth Garcia, co-founder at Near-life.
“We’re delighted to be sponsoring DevLearn and launching new tools that will democratise this type of technology for learning and mean VR is accessible to all.”
The development comes following investment from Innovate UK.
