Pediatric Cardiology Virtual Reality for Collaborative Learning
The Stanford Division of Pediatric Cardiology and Department of Engineering have collaborated to exhibit the Stanford Virtual Heart at the HIVE. Developed by Lighthaus Inc, the Stanford Virtual Heart is an immersive and interactive virtual reality (VR) experience in congenital heart disease. Students and trainees can interact with individual hearts and teleport inside a heart with a congenital heart defect, while displaying the VR heart on the massive high fidelity HIVE screen. Dr. Alison Marsden and Dr. David Axelrod continue to collaborate as they bring the complete congenital heart disease experience to life at the HIVE. The Stanford Virtual Heart was developed with support from the Betty Irene Moore Children’s Heart Center at Stanford and Oculus VR.
Visualizing Hidden Cognitive Demands and Engagement Patterns of Global Learners
You are in an online meeting with your cross-disciplinary, geographically distributed project team. Do you know your cognitive load? Do you know your potential degree of engagement? What is the team’s engagement level?
Globalization and advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) have led global teamwork across geographical and cultural boundaries to become a common practice in both education and industry.
Dr. Renate Fruchter and his team at the Project Based Learning Laboratory (PBL Lab) in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Stanford, embarked on an exploratory NSF sponsored project, called UNCODE, to uncover hidden cognitive demands on global learners.
The HIVE provides the PBL Lab a valuable and new high definition lens to visualize and analyze this rich big data. This resulted in further data analytics, integrating and aggregating the data, allowing them to display in the HIVE “engagement portraits” of individual global learners as well as global teams, and develop a framework of engagement archetypes.
The HIVE allows the David Rumsey Map Center to demonstrate how high-resolution digitized maps can reveal many surprises.

Residential and Dining Enterprises (R&DE) IT Business Intelligence
The HIVE, with its impressive visual scale, has enabled a more intuitive visual analysis of R&DE's operations, allowing for a holistic view across many important dimensions of their business together with more granular details.
