The ‘Instant’ Internet of 2035: Virtual Worlds, Self-Driving Cars and Online Doctor’s Visits

WHAT THE FUTURE MAY HOLD
Virtual worlds. Fettweis sees future students learning by doing, using virtual reality technology to interact in class. “Rather than struggling to pay attention in the back of a lecture hall,” Fettweis tells Quartz, students will be wandering the streets of ancient Rome and touching what’s in front of them (or so it will seem).

Virtual training rooms. We could learn new skills, like flying or surfing, from life-like simulations in our own living rooms, without setting foot on a beach or runway.

Immersive conversations. The next generation of video chatting could make two people feel as though they actually were in the same room as each other—you could potentially shake hands with someone on the other side of the world.

2014 KMWorld Promise and Reality Award winners: KM Reality Award winner Boston Children's Hospital

OPENPediatrics is a learning platform that went viral in its beta stage. Today it has more than 1,000 users in 78 countries and 420 hospitals. Although its content is still limited, it has already saved lives worldwide. To be effective, a medical distance learning system must support four phases of adult learning: explain, watch a demonstration, try it yourself and discuss.

That’s a straightforward process in a traditional classroom, but it raises all kinds of technical problems online: Who will do the teaching? How good will the information be? Is a video an adequate substitute for a live demonstration that allows listeners to ask questions? How can users try a skill they are learning in an online environment using some sort of simulator before they practice on real people? Can they get reliable, timely answers to their questions in an open discussion forum?
