With the economy in decline and the workforce shrinking, virtual and augmented reality technology is poised to help fill a job gap and give Americans the chance to work from home.
It’s an area that has attracted the attention of virtual-industry giant Intel.
With Intel’s new virtual-studio initiative, Intel will invest $5 million in virtual-education programs.
The company is looking for young people who want to learn new skills while using Intel’s products.
The company is not creating any specific programs for virtual workers.
But, according to Intel President and CEO Brian Krzanich, virtual work will help the company keep up with the changing needs of businesses and consumers, according the Wall Street Journal.

Reuters/Brendan McDermidIntel is developing a virtual-reality (VR) studio in the future to help students develop skills in virtual environments.
It is the latest step in a global trend of virtual education that’s taking place in schools and universities across the world.
The idea of virtual learning is not new, according an article in The Wall St. Journal, and many schools and companies have embraced it as a means to prepare students for jobs that might be virtual.
But the industry has been slow to develop virtual-employment programs that focus on training people for the jobs that will be created by the technology.
Virtual education can be a challenging and potentially challenging process, according Michael J. Hernández, a professor of education and training at the University of California, Berkeley, who researches the use of virtualization and virtual-experience in education.
He says that students must understand the difference between virtual education and the traditional classroom education that schools use.
For students, the learning process of virtual instruction is more like a classroom experience than the traditional high school experience, said Hernacez, who has researched virtual education for nearly a decade.
Students need to be able to interact with the virtual environment and learn in a real way.
They need to see how their actions and reactions are reflected in the virtual world and interact with it in a way that mimics real life.
And they need to feel a sense of belonging and a sense that they are part of a group of people who are learning together.
In a virtual setting, students can be more connected with the people and events around them, and the students are more likely to have an impact on the world around them.
In a classroom setting, the students aren’t necessarily getting the same kind of experience.
Hernacos experience is a great example of what he called “learning in the cloud.”
Hernántez is working on a project to develop a virtual learning environment that students can use as they work on their college education.
But while the project is funded by the U.S. Department of Education, it is a work in progress.
He said that he is not sure how the project will be funded and whether it will be implemented in schools.
“The way we are going to fund the program is through the private sector,” he said.
Hernandez said that the virtual learning project is aimed at young people with some computer-science training, but that it will expand to more ages as the project progresses.
Herculean tasksThe program is an ambitious goal, but the team is aiming to achieve it, said Daniel Belsky, a vice president of education for the company.
He added that the company is making efforts to help the program grow.
“We are working to make sure that students who are working on this are not only learning the technology, but also being connected to others in the community,” he told the Wall St Journal.
He said that Intel is developing virtual-work programs that are geared toward helping students develop the skills needed to make a living from the technology and that the team wants to ensure that virtual education is well-received by employers and employees.
The goal of virtual educational programs is to develop the right skills, he said, adding that Intel hopes to expand the program to schools and colleges.
Hernes said that virtual training is not a new idea, but it is one that is gaining popularity with schools and other employers.
“It’s not that this is something that has never been done before, but this is the kind of technology that we’ve never seen before,” she said.
