Amazon Sumerian is a new, simple tool that you can use to design your own learning experiences and educational games. This browser based, pay as you use program was designed by Amazon to be an alternative to the Unity and Unreal game engines that has a much lower learning curve without sacrificing utility. Using visual coding and simplified menus, it makes the creation of online games, simulations and VR/AR experiences accessible to non-programmers like teachers, trainers and even students. The audience should come away from this presentation with enough knowledge to start their own projects in Amazon Sumerian. They should have a feel for the platform, as well as have some resources to deepen their knowledge independently. Through the presentation, the audience should see an application for the platform that fits their own needs as well as see examples of how it can be applied to training and education.
