How 3D Technology Will Transform Business Communication

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's curator insight, March 6, 6:11 PM

"3D imaging could vastly improve virtual meetings and presentations by making them “immersive.” Applications that use depth-sensing technology can extract individuals from their surroundings and “place” them into 3D virtual meetings with their colleagues, or even into a virtual “space” with data objects—documents, presentations or what-have-you—they can manipulate and display. It’s basically the same thing you’d do with a digital-effects green screen, only without the green screen.

 

"Immersive meetings will let business types interact more directly with their customers or colleagues and to present data, images and video more the way they might in a face-to-face meeting—only with way more flair. This sort of immersion will become a core capability for all online collaboration."

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

"There are a lot of ways that people make terrible and invalid arguments.


"Making a good argument is about using logic to prove a conclusion based on some given facts. In a valid argument, the conclusion actually does follow from the facts.

Are You Going to Adopt a Modern "Essentials" Textbook? | Bovee and Thill's Communication Archive | Scoop.it

Are you going to adopt a modern “Essentials” textbook with extensive integration of mobile communication in every chapter, or are you going to saddle your students with a commonly adopted “Essentials” text that is stuck in the last decade?

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:


Because of complacency and a lack of knowledge about the topic, most business communication textbook authors are ignoring the mobile revolution. In fact, they’re pretending that it doesn’t even exist.


In light of these facts, are your students being served well? There is one team that’s always on the cutting edge: Bovee and Thill. The fact they are the only business communication textbook authors currently writing about mobile tells you everything you need to know about which author team conscientiously revises its books and keeps them current. (Bovee and Thill were also the first authors to discuss social media and digital communication in their texts.)
