What is “Seamless Blended Learning” in the Metaverse?

Wilma Hartenfels: “Today I’m talking to Philippe Séjalon. Together with his brother Patrice and another founder, Marion, Philippe founded Ingage several years ago. Ingage brings innovative and immersive training experiences to the still quite traditional insurance industry.

Our interview (in English, with an introduction in German) is about the potential of the metaverse as a new stage of development of the Internet. Philippe explains how he brings together various disruptive technologies such as VR, AR, Blockchain, NFTs and crypto in a Seamless Learning approach to increase learner engagement.”

Can you work without a computer? 

Maybe you have seen the movie “Minority Report”, where the hero uses a gesture-based interface. In the coming years, we will probably work with 3D glasses to achieve something similar. 

Our company helps companies in the insurance industry create their “future of education.” Therefore, we are always looking for better ways to work and teach thanks to new technologies. 

A typical workday for me looks like this: I work on various projects via video conferencing with colleagues and clients around the world, read/write articles, write emails, and watch videos about the latest technologies, educational concepts, and the insurance industry. 
In short, I no longer do IT development or database management, so I don’t really need a powerful computer anymore.
 
So, for some time now, I’ve wondered if I could try working with just a tablet and some noise-canceling earbuds. Two months ago I took the plunge, bought a tablet and gave up my laptop to work exclusively with it. It’s been an interesting experience. Although it was a little bit unsettling at first because I had to change my habits, it got much better and even opened up more productive ways of working. For example, I usually like to work on paper to draw concepts and brainstorm. Now I can draw and collaborate on online whiteboards. 

I’ve found that I still need my computer from time to time: mostly to access the Metaverse, our virtual worlds. The rest of the time I can work on my tablet!

This video shows that we need fewer and fewer tools to work, as they are replaced by one.

What about you? Do you already work with a tablet or would you consider doing so?

Insurance training is boring?

Most of us have been through corporate training, in companies’ meeting rooms, training centers or convention halls. There, even if the training sessions were not always interesting, the advantage was that you could meet new people, do some networking and at least have breakfast or even lunch. Hot coffee and warm croissants… it’s not that bad after all. What about the Return on Investment for that training? Well… 

Since the COVID spread around the world however, training has substantially evolved and gone online at a previously unseen pace. Companies that were only talking about digitization now had to do it! Under time pressure. Many companies were not ready and had to put together some online courses within a very short timeframe. As for the level of quality and engagement, well… 

In both cases, learners find the training sub-optimal, not to say totally boring. If 5% of your learners finish your online courses, it’s normal. No, it’s not! If you have the right management buy-in and the right online training, you should aim much higher. 

Does it have to be that way? Really?
Young talents expect – and deserve – more than this! We all love learning.

Alright, alright, but “some topics are more interesting than others”, “Insurance is dull, it’s boring.” Really?
Protecting the people you love and the things you like is boring? Insurance is connected to anything we do. There are countless beautiful or tragic stories related to insurance.

Besides, ANYTHING can be made interesting. It’s all about your state of mind…
