  • EyeControl – wearable, screenless communication device
  • Home control – use your voice to control your home
  • Virtual Reality – immerse yourself in an alternative world
  • Mixed Reality – augment the real world with objects and activities inside the real-world

This is delivered online as a short course and places can be reserved for small numbers of staff.

For larger numbers, the training can be delivered in-house for a single organisation. This has the advantage of allowing more time for questions and tailoring the content so it is specific to your setting.
