Author, Publish, and Evaluate

HyperSkill is a no-code 3D simulation authoring software for both Virtual and Augmented Reality. HyperSkill was created to enable instructional designers to create immersive training content without having to learn programming. HyperSkill enables non-programmers to author VR/AR content, publish it to various devices and audiences and collect and visualize experience data. Users can unlock the value of existing CAD and 3D assets by converting them into interactive virtual objects securely stored in the cloud. These virtual objects can enrich training and assessment. HyperSkill supports xAPI so that content creators can use xAPI to log and report data and fine grained metrics related to content and learner proficiency on targeted knowledge and skills.

  • Author: Drag and drop interactive 3D assets from our repository, add step by step instructions, add highlights and other effects, and author dialogue to design conversations.
  • Publish: Author once, experience anywhere. HyperSkill content can be experienced on a wide range of VR and AR devices ranging from mobile to high-end AR (Hololens, Magic Leap, etc.) and VR (HTC Vive, Oculus Quest, Rift etc.)
  • Evaluate: Capture rich multimodal datasets from users when they experience the content (head and hand motion, point of view video, audio, action streams, etc.) and quickly create visualizations. HyperSkill supports xAPI for logging and reporting data and fine grained metrics related to content and learner proficiency on targeted knowledge and skills.

Healthcare experts agree that there are substantial benefits to incorporating  immersive virtual reality based training into healthcare training programs. Whether the training is focused on didactic, skills or simulation, VR can deliver ROI and outcomes with efficiency and agility, by cutting down the need for in-person training and travel. Decision makers often focus on efficiency, but in some cases agility is the key factor in decision making.

HyperSkill for Assembly

Assembly is a large portion of manufacturing operations. During assembly, defects can be introduced and they can pass undetected through quality inspection which can result in substantial rework or warranty costs. Just in the US, companies could have saved more than 25 billion dollars in 2018 in warranty claims if all the products worked as expected. HyperSkill aims to enable non-technical users to author digital twins of the workspaces, equipment and processes for training, guidance and quality monitoring. The picture shows an example of the types of electromechanical or mechatronic systems that are challenging to assemble.
