RMIT Online and AWS offering course in VR and AR

RMIT Online has announced the launch of its university short course in virtual reality and augmented reality using Amazon Sumerian, as well as further AI courses. 

Through the collaboration, RMIT is also trialing these technologies to enhance the student experience through the introduction of a digital assistant known as AIDA.

“RMIT is an early adopter in offering the innovative learning environment that 21st century students expect,” said Vincent Quah, APAC Regional Head for Education, Research and Not For Profit, Amazon Web Services.

“With the launch of the RMIT courses in VR and AR using Amazon Sumerian, RMIT continues to help students become future-ready in a rapidly changing economic environment.”

RMIT’s newly launched courses, Developing AI strategy, Developing AR and VR Strategy and Developing AR and VR Applications are adapted from the AWS Educate global program and are design to address tech-driven changes in the workplace. 

“Industry and enterprise are embedded in everything we do and we continue to embrace new technology - collaborating with Amazon Web Services is a great example of our continued leadership in this space,” said Martin Bean, RMIT Vice-Chancellor and President.

“By co-designing courses with leading industry players and actually using the technology that we are teaching, we’re creating a uniquely rewarding experience for both our staff and our students.”

The online courses run from 6 weeks and cost from $1,400.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
