Do you know what Augmented Reality is and have you tried incorporating it into your employee training? It’s the ultimate game changer!
In doing so, you substantially enhance the learner’s experience.
Innovative Ways You Can Use Augmented Reality for Employee Training
There are a multitude of captivating ways you can utilize Augmented Reality. You may be surprised to learn that you can use it to embed training onto pieces of equipment and vehicles. For example:
A combine: Combines are commonly used in the agriculture industry. They are machines designed to efficiently harvest a variety of crops. However, not all combines are the same in terms of features, controls, and intricacies. And this could be problematic for new employees who don’t have any experience with that specific combine.
With Augmented Reality, we are able to create and embed a micro-training solution that focuses on, for example, the most important safety features of that particular combine. It’s self-directed training that is repeatable, engaging, and efficient. Think about what it could do for your health and safety record and productivity.
Luxury car: Luxury cars come with a plethora of fancy features. However, sometimes, it can be difficult to figure out, for example, how to change the clock or a setting in the stereo system. And it can be time-consuming trying to dig through a thick manual to find the answers.
With Augmented Reality, we can embed the safety or user manual right into the logo of the car. By scanning the logo with a smartphone, the learner would now be able to instantly access specific information about that car.
Truck: Truck drivers travel great distances daily to deliver various products. How do they ever receive training? A lot of times, they just don’t. This is because it’s incredibly difficult to pull a fleet of truck drivers together and execute some sort of training session. It’s also costly and complicated to undertake.
With Augmented Reality, we can place a sticker on the dashboard of the truck and the driver can easily scan that sticker with their smartphone. Of course, we wouldn’t recommend this while driving. However, before the start of their shift, they could scan that sticker with their smartphone to access just-in-time training or communication. And the really neat part is that we can change the digital asset that is in that sticker every single day. We never have to change the sticker itself! Imagine being able to drip new micro-training to your entire fleet of drivers every single day?
