You enter a workplace. You've never been here before. But you know exactly what to do--and you execute the tasks competently. This is one of the goals of Bit Space Development. They're an interactive digital media studio, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. And their mission says their goal is to build "the best, most innovative and creative interactive learning experiences we possibly can". Bit Space Development Owner/CEO Dan Blair created his startup in 2015. Since then, Dan, who describes himself as an "idea guy" and technology enthusiast, has worked with his team to develop multiple VR and XR projects for experiential learning. Currently, classrooms and on-the-job training are their main applications. But Dan says the possibilities extend far beyond those uses--to social experiences as well. Dan talked about his experiences, explored the ways his company's technology works for hands-on virtual learning experiences and shared some of his favorite resources. On this edition of Over Coffee®, we cover: Where Dan's interest in "building things that solve problems" began; The creative project that served as a catalyst this interest; The story of Bit Space Development (which Dan says he created accidentally!); One very cool XR project Bit Space Development is doing with the schools in their area; How Dan and his team are using immersive technology to work remotely due to the pandemic; A walkthrough of planning an educational experience in XR; How XR can become more accessible; What's ahead, for Bit Space Development; A 360 experience they've created, reconstructing a site in their local community; Dan's recommendations for anyone who's new to XR and would like to learn more.
