ISTE VEN VIRBELA Conference Impressions

Attended the Virtual Environments Networking conference held 29-Feb-2020 in the VirBELA Open Campus and was impressed with the content and the venue. Content focus was virtual reality technology used for K-12, University, and Workplace learning.

This is the first time I’ve seen Open Campus in a live fire conferencing exercise. Early in the presentation schedule my browser pinged and I found that one of the other attendees had checked my LinkedIn profile. I returned the compliment and sent a connect invite. I mentioned this in voice during a conference break and before you knew it there was a flurry of LI connects going off all over the place.

VirBELA venue information is available from the VirBELA Open Campus page. Our venue host was Natalia.

Conference organizer information is available from the About ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) and VEN (Virtual Environment Network) pages. My conference organizer contact was Spiff.

Presenter biographies, materials links, and videos of the presentations are available from the VEN Conference Schedule page.

Conferencing viewpoint. Simple UI and Avatars. Chat in text, talk in voice. Trade information and links like mad.

Screen zoom viewpoint. Voice, visuals, and videos are clear. Pull quote: “People in VR don’t know about VW.”
