Stan van Ginkel graduated Cum Laude defending his dissertation ‘Fostering Oral Presentation’

With great pride we announce that Stan van Ginkel defended his dissertation and received his PhD with distinction (Cum Laude). The title of his dissertation: Fostering Oral Presentation.

CoVince and NCOI worked together with Stan on his final research ‘Fostering oral presentation competence through a virtual reality-based task for delivering feedback’, which is published in one of the leading journals ‘Computers & Education’.

We are very proud and honored to have made a small contribution to this great achievement, in the real and virtual world. We’re looking forward to future research and continuous implementation of these insights in education.

CoVince article in the VR/AR Association Ecosystem Report

 

‘CoVince published in the VR/AR Association Ecosystem Report’

 
“It is with great pride that the VR/AR Association presents you with its first ecosystem report representing the Netherlands. The objective of this report is to provide anyone who is interested in the Dutch AR/VR market with a bit of insight into this market. Which kind of organizations can you find in this ecosystem? What kind of products or services do they offer? And whom should you reach out to in case you wish to contact them?”

“Going through the report you will find there are different use cases in which VR and AR are applied today. If you are interested to learn more about any of these use cases, I would like to encourage you to contact the organizations directly. I am sure they will tell you everything that you would like to know and how they can potentially help you reach your (business) goals with the help of VR and AR.”

Interview ComputerWeekly.com: Dutch virtual reality can help reduce teacher shortage worldwide

 

‘Dutch virtual reality can help reduce teacher shortage worldwide’

 
Stan van Ginkel, a lecturer and researcher at the Archimedes Institute and the Intelligent Data Systems professorship at Utrecht University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands, researches the use of virtual reality (VR) glasses as a means to reduce teacher shortages. The VR learnings Van Ginkel developed with his team and his technological partner CoVince Adventurous Learning analyses three important aspects of oral presentation: eye contact, the use of your voice, and your posture and gestures.

“VR is a very good way to simulate real-life situations and the technology can be used to give real-time feedback to a student,” said Van Ginkel. His team set up a VR lab and conducted experiments within the existing oral presentation skills course.

Interview Innovation Origins: ‘Start-up of the day: Covince is de ‘Netflix van het E-learning’

 

Start-up of the day: Covince is de ‘Netflix van het E-learning’

 
“De motivatie van CoVince is om e-learning modules relatief goedkoop aan klanten te kunnen aanbieden. CoVince ontwikkelde al veel verschillende bouwblokken en zodoende kunnen ze telkens nieuwe modules creëren voor klanten. Het is heel duur voor bedrijven om steeds opnieuw e-learning modules met de nieuwste technologie te maken. Door de methode van CoVince te gebruiken, kunnen de kosten voor de opdrachtgever worden gedrukt: Dat maakt het voor bedrijven goedkoop om CoVince te gebruiken.”

VR Lab Training with SenseGlove @VR (R)evolution 2019 Veldhoven

 

Improvement of lab and clinical site training by use of Virtual Reality, Tactile- and Force Feedback technology

 

During the Virtual (R)evolution congress near Eindhoven, CoVince, LMBA and SenseGlove showed the possibilities of VR applications for the lab. Lab process (LMBA), VR learning platform (CoVince) and Tactile / Force feedback (Senseglove) expertise is used to develop high quality VR modules for realistic lab training. The VR learning platform provides an interactive training process while tactile and force feedback ensures that you can actually use tools in the VR environment. This creates a real situation in a safe environment in which numerous lab processes can be trained. This technology is ideally suited for safety, assay and clinical site training.

Do you want to standardize and improve lab and clinical site training in a safe learning environment? That is possible with the help of Virtual Reality! Successful lab training results in a lower error rate and therefore a more streamlined development process. Training in a safe and realistic environment without the physical presence in a lab improves the learning result.
