804 Getting Inside the Machine: Using VIAR to Create a 360 Experience
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM Thursday, June 27
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.
In this session we’ll share how we helped our techs to get a deeper look inside our new technology with 360 training experiences, and how you can begin designing your own. You’ll explore the various tools and opportunities available for training with 360 panoramic images and video, and learn from our experiences. You’ll leave the session knowing how to provide your learners with a holistic training experience they can access on their desktops or from their mobile devices.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to create a quick 360 training
- How to reach remote employees with more immersive training
- Ways to incorporate 360 learning on a mobile device
- How to make an interactive 360 experience
Designers, developers, managers
