THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING
Employers can create solutions where pointing the phone camera at a certain text of a training manual will lead to more materials or resources popping up on the users’ screen to train employees about specific products, services, or solutions.
Fremont, CA: Augmented reality (AR) uses digital information in a video or user environment in real-time. The technology can be used to superimpose sound, videos, images, animations and create a holographic effect.
Virtual reality (VR) creates a virtual environment involving the user in the experience. With VR headsets, viewers can engage and manipulate a 3D world for an experience close to reality.
Here are four uses of AR/VR technology in employee training:
Create Soft Skills and Expertise
Employers can develop VR simulations for specific situations that the employees might potentially experience. This makes the employees more comfortable in the real problem and allows them to offer better services to the customers.
Improve the Effectiveness of Learning Materials
Employers can create solutions where pointing the phone camera at a certain text of a training manual will lead to more materials or resources popping up on the users’ screen. Companies can use this strategy to train employees about specific products, services, or solutions.
Getting Employees Ready for Emergencies
VR and AR is perfect for training employees to manage real-life situations. Some airports implement this technology for airport safety training.
Offering Training in a Safe and Affordable Manner
VR and AR can be used to simulate safe and consequence-free training. Employers can develop an accurate simulation of their operations with the equipment they use. New employees can acquire skills and experience through simulation and experiment as much as possible. Any errors made will only be felt in the virtual world of simulation.
