Barwinners to Explore the Use of Oculus Rift for Virtual Reality California Bar Exam Simulation
First Barwinners Exploration of Virtual Reality via the Oculus Rift to help students pass the California Bar
Santa Monica, CA – July 20, 2013 – Virtual reality has entered the California bar test prep industry today as Barwinners, a 20-year bar test prep leader, has announced, it is exploring the possibility of using virtual reality headset, the Oculus Rift, to simulate bar exam testing in the future.
“Barwinners is constantly exploring ideas about using new technology to help students pass the bar,” said Shari Karney, CEO at Barwinners. “We are looking into using Oculus Rift hardware and software to create a completely new and totally immersive virtual reality experience of what it is like to take the California Bar test. Before our students show up to try and pass the test we would like them to experience what the actual test environment sounds and looks like. However, use of this technology, and it’s adaptation to testing and educations is still years away from becoming a reality.”
In the past VR headset were only available to research labs and military programs. With the advent of an affordable VR headset from Oculus VRTMnew business verticals will be able to leverage the technology for immersive environment training.
“Having an intensely real experience in Virtual Reality before you actually try it in the real world would give students a great advantage in taking the California bar test” said Shari Karney, Our hope is that, as part of our course in the future, each student would be able to spend an hour in Virtual Reality simulating the testing site and testing process. This will help reduce those pre-Bar test jitters so many students experience and help them gain a higher test result.” Right now, Virtual Reality Oculus Rift’s primary focus has been on the game industry. We hope they develop software for educational use as well.
