704 Moving Forward Faster with AR
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Wednesday, June 26
While augmented reality’s emergence as a technology is currently behind virtual reality, many would argue AR has much broader potential in the context of learning and development in the long term. We’ve begun to see examples of augmented reality used to support and build knowledge, but we’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of how we could use this technology for training and just-in-time support.
In this panel discussion you will learn from early AR adopters and explore the possibilities of AR both today and in the future. You will examine what we can do to move from AR speculation to application as individuals and organizations. You will also explore strategies to prepare yourself for how this technology will continue to evolve and refine over time.
