Employees and employers have different priorities when it comes to training: while the former prefers a high level of personalisation, the latter seek cost-effective solutions that still provide the desired results. With Augmented Reality, it’s possible to have both!
Augmented Reality training has the potential to completely remove the requirement of a supervisor’s presence while still providing the trainee with an interactive experience. With the technology’s help, a detailed summary of each of the trainee’s tasks can be provided through the usage of visual stimuli such as arrows or highlighted areas.
Further, it is also possible to add voice recordings, related video materials, documents and other materials that a trainee could need, which are displayed on demand. With all necessary information being available every step of the way, learning results are improved and the amount of time needed for a task drastically decreased. Industries such as retail, healthcare, manufacturing and many others can implement Augmented Reality and make it a part of their eLearning programs.
An example of the effectiveness of AR in training is the study Fusing Self-Reported and Sensor Data from Mixed-Reality Training. This study demonstrated that AR decreased the number of mistakes from trainees by 90% and reduced the overall time needed to perform a task.
Businesses can adopt AR training with our TASK module. It is designed to provide AR guidelines that can be used in a variety of ways: training, maintenance, repair and diagnostics of heavy machinery.
Just like mobile phones were adapted to become learning devices, in the future AR training will become a normal procedure amongst businesses. Used properly, digital reality and machine learning tools have the potential to improve productivity, safety - all while at the same time reducing costs, increasing sales and delivering a significant impact on ROI.
