Course Rundown

We designed Developing VR and AR Strategy in partnership with global experts from Amazon Web Services (AWS). The course takes a strategic look at VR and AR using cutting-edge software – Amazon Sumerian. Our expert mentors from the best employers in industry will walk you through case studies, help you understand VR/AR from a strategic level and get you on the tools to create your own proof of concept. 

Here are some figures for you. According to research company Gartner, 100 million people will be shopping in Augmented Reality (AR) by 2020. And by 2025, there’ll be over 500 million Virtual Reality (VR) headsets in use worldwide. That’s a lucrative pie, right there. VR and AR are the new technology frontier, but what are their applications? And how can industry take advantage of their potential opportunities? 

That’s what Developing VR and AR Strategy is all about. This 6 week course by RMIT Online will teach you how to articulate a clear business strategy around VR and AR using Amazon Sumerian software.  You’ll be welcomed into a community of diverse professionals and supported by experts from leading organisations like Versent and the Amazon Sumerian team. There’s no other course like it.
