Focus: Augmented Reality

In a highly technical or complex classroom, trainers struggle to pass knowledge to learners in a manner that is both impactful and engaging. Technical classrooms include elaborate and costly pieces of equipment that are not easily shared among all learners in the classroom at the same time. Technical classes may also include diverse learners of varying technical ability and comprehension. How can AR help in this environment?

Focus: Augmented Reality,  Simulations,  Virtual Reality

3-D content is phenomenally cool—from basic polygonal models to full human-like characters, buildings, vehicles, and even complete environments. Because 3-D content has historically taken vast resources (i.e., time and money) to create, 3-D resources are often relegated to video games, simulations, and/or VR only. However, creating, editing, or obtaining 3-D models for everyday use in eLearning doesn’t have to be cost-prohibitive or take a lot of time.

Focus: Virtual Reality

Some job requirements can be hard to practice. Simulating tasks may be too dangerous, too expensive to set up, or too hard to distribute to employees across geographies. Vistual reality is a viable solution to address such challenges. In VR, risks are free, design and development can be cheaper than setting up real-world training scenarios, and, as VR headsets can easily be shipped to different places, the need to fly people into locations for training is reduced.

Focus: Virtual Reality

We’ve all heard that VR training experiences have a proven higher retention rate, with retention gains reaching 75 percent in comparison to standard video, eLearning, or textbook training. What we need to know is how to create and deploy VR training quickly and cost effectively, with the systems we have today. This session will cover the creation, editing, publishing, and tracking of VR training using 360 video.
