Focus: Simulations,  Virtual Reality

You’re building VR simulators, and you need to either scale up your company’s production capabilities or get more productivity out of the staff you have. Join this session to discuss a real-world case study that demonstrates the steps followed to accomplish both goals.

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.

VR and AR are here. Apple ARKit and Google ARCore are turning two billion phones into a magic lens that can arm your workforce with superpowers. Full-body VR offers a digital rehearsal space of such convincing verisimilitude that learners feel they are actually there. How are Fortune 500 companies driving business results by leaving the glowing rectangular screens behind to step into the virtual and augmented reality of the future?

Focus: Simulations

Instructional videos are an important tool when frontloading instructional content, but they are limited when it comes to engaging learners with real-world simulations. This session will provide an in-depth examination of how one team expanded their content offerings by developing a gamified driving simulation. The simulation was designed to introduce Honda sales consultants to a new advanced-powertrain vehicle, and show them how its complex powertrain operates when driving in different environments.

A large, US-based quick-service restaurant chain was entering the Indian market, planning to open about 1,500 stores in India. The number of trainers was not sufficient to cover the vast geography, and the organization decided to convert 50 to 70 percent of experiential and on-the-job training to simulated workbenches. The plan was to carve out simulations on point of sale (POS) using a limited number of trainers.

You’ve heard the proverb, “You give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. You teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” How can this be accomplished quickly, scalably, and effectively using simulations, both as team-based and self-directed learning activities?

Focus: Augmented Reality,  Simulations,  Virtual Reality

Both augmented reality and virtual reality technologies address a world that is 3-D, while most traditional digital learning technology addressed a flat landscape. The movement to 3-D landscapes is going to require new skill sets, including new coding skills. With many possible solutions out there for producing 3-D graphics, digital learning needs a way of producing 3-D that is congruent with tools and presentation methods in current use.

Focus: Simulations,  Virtual Reality

Training firefighters in the field is an expensive endeavor. Traditional field training exercises involve large teams of firefighters, their equipment, a dedicated training ground, and set-up and tear-down time for each field exercise. When training exercises are not performed frequently and with precision to shift tactical knowledge to long-term memory, lives are at stake on the fireground. Additionally, firefighters simply do not experience fires every day.

Focus: Simulations,  Virtual Reality

Social VR has the opportunity to bring learners from all over the world into a shared environment for collaboration, simulations, and serious games. While the potential is immense, broad-scale adoption of VR hardware will take some time. This session will describe how companies are accommodating this adoption life cycle by offering social learning experiences that people can log in to on mobile (2-D), desktop, and fully immersive VR.

Focus: Simulations

It’s that herculean challenge, the digital makeover. Take a bi-weekly face-to-face simulation, costing the firm millions of dollars in travel expenses and staffing, and turn it into a rich digital experience. Prepare learners with tools, resources, and training to begin their careers. Also, make sure they feel welcomed, understand expectations, and are grounded in the company structure, priorities, and methodologies. Oh, you have four months to do it!

Focus: Simulations

Moving your organization forward with new approaches to learning and development can be challenging—especially when the new approaches involve nontraditional ideas or technologies. Our Overcoming Barriers sessions bring together people who have already walked this path to share what they have learned. Join our panel of experts as they discuss how you can overcome the most common barriers to incorporating simulations into your training and development programs.

Focus: Simulations

Today’s networked businesses must contend with unprecedented levels of complexity and variety. Business simulations provide active, dynamic learning solutions where learners can replicate realistic businesses environments as safe-to-fail spaces where learners can authentically model complex, long-term challenges and improve their performance without any real risk. Managing the conceptual and technical load of creating gamified simulations can be its own challenge—but this session will show you how it’s done.

Focus: Simulations,  Virtual Reality

It can be expensive and time consuming to jump on the VR bandwagon. So how do you determine if, when, and how to utilize AR, VR, and MR in your training strategy? If the time is right, how do you get started?

In many companies, all of the most important data and technologies sit inside high-security locations that most employees can’t ever access. But this data and equipment represents a direct link to the customer experience, and it’s important for employees to understand what is inside these centers and what it means for their services. How can you give employees a realistic and immersive view inside what is typically unseen?
