TLS Learning

Learning practitioners strive to understand the real-life environment of experts as much as possible. But getting access to really see how people do their jobs when they are in a more technical or hands-on role (e.g., construction, refinery, or factory work) is difficult. Often, learning practitioners can’t use video or real-life images because of safety or clearance constraints. This poses a challenge as they try to create impactful learning materials.

In this session, you will see how you can equip subject matter experts with a GoPro or 360 camera that they can wear on their chests or hard hats and control from phones or tablets. You will see what it looks like within their environment, and you’ll capture it in the form of a video to put into a course, or an easy-to-access performance support video. This session will show you how to quickly set up and use the devices. You will also learn how to help your leadership understand the viability of this technology as a training tool.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How a GoPro and early VR tools can be useful additions to your design and development toolkit
  • How to discuss this as a viable option with a client (or a manager) and set a strategy for success
  • How to set up and use a GoPro
  • Tips and best practices for success

Novice to advanced designers, developers, and managers.

Technology discussed in this session:
GoPro, VR tools, iPad and iPhone.
