Webinar: How to Use Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality in Corporate Training
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are making waves in the corporate training world each passing day. Given the rising popularity of these technologies in the L&D sector, I’m sure you must be wondering about the details that go into planning courses and incorporating AR and VR into your training strategies.
That is why Paradiso is happy to present our Webinar on How to Use Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality in Corporate Training, to help you clear all your doubts about these amazing technologies.
Why you should attend this webinar:
In this webinar, you will find the answers to a number of your questions regarding Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, including:
- How can your organization use VR & AR for training?
- For what type of topics and outcomes will VR be an effective solution?
- How much will it cost?
- What type of setup will be required?
..and many more.
Understanding Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.
No amount of observation or reading will be able to prepare an employee completely for the actual challenges that face him when he becomes part of an organization.
Furthermore, in some situations, for example in the case of new doctors, or new recruits on construction sites, where the tasks are difficult or potentially dangerous and there is little or no margin for error, it is not possible to provide the employee with the hands on training that he needs to succeed in his work.
How then will the new employee be able to get the practical knowledge that he needs without having to face all the risks associated with it?
All these issues are rapidly being solved by the advent of two new technologies on the training scene; Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.
These technologies are revolutionizing the world of corporate training and introducing the concept of immersive, engaging and effective training experiences for employees across a number of industries.
So what is Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality?
Although these terms are commonly mistaken to be synonymous, and are often used interchangeably, they do have some distinct features which distinguish them from one another.
According to Wikipedia, Virtual Reality is a computer technology that uses VR headsets, sometimes in combination with physical spaces or multi-projected environments, to generate realistic images, sounds and other sensations that simulate a user’s physical presence in a virtual or imaginary environment.
On the other hand, Augmented Reality is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real world environment, whose elements are “augmented” by computer generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.
In simpler terms, virtual reality is when a user is completely immersed in a virtual environment that has been designed to mimic a real life situation. In this virtual world he gets to explore and interact as though he is physically present in that situation.
Augmented reality is when the user’s natural environment is enhanced by using certain computer generated virtual elements. Though not as immersive as virtual reality, augmented reality helps in creating a harmony between the user’s actual real world and the virtual world. Because of this, augmented reality tends to provide more peer interactivity and collaboration, since it involves the user’s natural environment.
Why use AR/VR for Corporate Training:
As discussed above, more means of practical and hands on training without the associated risks is the need of the hour.
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are effective solutions to this issue due to the amazing training benefits they provide to the organization:
- Time and Cost Saver
- Immersive Learning Experiences
- Visual Approach to Learning
- Simplifying complex data
- Hands on Experience without risks or fear of mistakes
- Easy training access for remote employees
- Innovative and engaging training experience.
These are but a few of the amazing benefits of incorporating Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality into your training programs.
