Put yourself in the shoes of a new leader joining your organization. They must successfully balance assimilating the culture, learning processes, training, financial briefings, building relationships, and other countless tasks. That is a lot to expect from an individual that needs to hit the ground running and lead their team to success. At Holiday Inn Club Vacations, many of our leaders claimed they could have been more successful from the start if they understood how all of the business units work together. This was a wake-up call for our organization to completely disrupt the way we onboard leaders, and create a new kind of experience that would show them how to lead successfully within our culture.Read More
When facilitating a simulation-based activity, do you sometimes hear participants say, "Yeah, but in the real world, I would do this…"? How real do you need to get with AR, VR, and screen-based simulation activities? In our world of emergency nursing students, realism is critical to meeting the learning outcomes of the program. In order to increase competence and confidence, our emergency nursing students need to be exposed to a multitude of patient cases in simulation form. So which simulation modality (AR/VR/screen-based) provided the most realism and was the most practical—in terms of design, development, and delivery— for on-campus and distance students?Read More
With VR simulation we have the opportunity to revolutionize how equipment operators are trained, qualified, and even certified with industry agencies. Practical hands-on training and qualification assessments of operators of heavy equipment represent high-cost workforce development activities for employers due to several factors, including unavailability of equipment and scarce instructor resources. Self-paced virtual reality equipment operator solutions have become so close to the real machinery that augmenting portions of the practical training and qualification process is now available. But are they effective?Read More
New technology can take time to learn, and can be especially challenging without hands-on experience. At our organization, new slot machine cabinets and components were continuously being introduced, and it was a priority to make sure technicians felt confident in their knowledge when installing them at a casino property. But it was quite pricey to fly field service technicians out to Las Vegas for training each time something new came out.Read More
Augmented reality allows you to enhance your current environment, recognize objects, and add additional experiences to help learners learn and explore more of the world around them. This is great, but how do you get started and do you need to be a coder to create these kind of experiences?Read More
