We’re Making Serious Progress.

We’ve been hard at work this past month working towards opening up more and more opportunities and content to our community of professionals.

We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all of the members who completed our survey and supported the continued development of the new Platform. You have played a vital role in the enhancement of our member experiences!

Get voting on major content updates!…

As we spoke about last month we have begun building a library of Immersive and Metaverse based, Web3 and Real-time VR/AR courses, with valuable input and feedback from our community. We have begun their planning stages and have collected these into our AIXR Platform roadmap – please visit, engage, and be a part of this journey! 

  • We’ve got 7 NEW curated courses from a selection of our Founding Status Members in their planning stages
  • A current total of 14 courses are planned to be on boarded onto the AIXR Platform for launch.

Important Changes to Advisory Groups… 

We are also well on the way to producing a new model for member advisory groups which will now be found as “Groups” within the platform, along with drafting new eligibility requirements for being an advisory status member.  

  • “Advisory Groups” will move to a new format prior to the platform launch built within the community platform and divided by ‘Sector specific groups’ and ‘Technology specific groups’
  • This new format will create a whole host of new groups that members can be invited to. 
  • The ability to ‘Follow’ groups will open up to all members, free and professional.
  • Members will be able to automatically request to join as an advisory member.
  • An important advisory meeting between chairs will be held on the 12th October to confirm these changes.

Platform construction…

  • We are currently In the midst of integral simultaneous UX and UI design and development
  • Our developers are on track for our December 1, 2022 launch!
  • We’ve been working on Metaverse definitions and events filtering systems
  • Our member portal will begin to be phased out next month.
  • High fidelity wireframes will demonstrate the user journey through the Platform (request a pre-tour if you want a peek!)

Beta testing…

We’ve also opened up early UX Beta testing for the AIXR Platform, if you would like to be part of the first beta group for UX testing, make sure to sign up!

Thank you for reading this community update, we will be sure to return shortly with more exciting developments from the AIXR platform. Until then, speak more with us and get involved – [email protected]
