Immersive Product Design

As Head of the Immersive technical team at Pearson Jo was responsible for the design and building of products in MR, VR and 360.  Initial user research centred around identifying key learning outcomes by working with teachers, instructors and learners to evaluate their needs and the key technologies to meet those needs.  Jo led the team in producing products in 360 video for Higher Education, vocational mixed reality training products using Microsoft HoloLens and collaborated on VR training products for Oculus Rift and mobile AR for iOS and Android.  At the heart of Jo’s approach was the need to produce products that not only looked good but were pedagogically valid and commercially sound.
