Extended reality (XR) blends interactive digital elements into a realistic environment. As technical communicators, we’re accustomed to looking forward and determining how new technologies affect our audience. So, how do tech comm and XR coexist, and what does tech comm mean within the context of XR?
Join us on Tuesday, October 29, to learn more about how XR provides value in technical communication, learning, and design. In this program, we will discuss XR today, emerging XR trends, and what tech comm in XR looks like. Our presenters will discuss tools technical communicators use to create content for XR and learn how to stay informed about the latest aspects of XR-related technology.
Please register for this program by Friday, October 25.
