Join us as we address these questions and more in this highly collaborative and interactive session!

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies can offer extraordinary solutions to the myriad challenges companies are facing.   These technologies will drastically change how we onboard, train, support and work in the upcoming years.  Truly immersive and interactive training content helps to develop different skills, teaching new information and providing learners with many valuable experiences that have historically been difficult to train.   AR/VR can prove greatly beneficial for professional training outside of a traditional school or learning environment.   Learners get to understand and learn the practical skills of different in-field conditions using these technologies.  There is a difference in what we learn through books, classes and courses and what is “experienced and felt” in the workplace environment.  Virtual and Augmented learning technologies make it possible to directly engage students at the emotional and psychological level, taking us from training through repetition to training through direct experience, the natural way humans learn every day in the real world, transforming the learning process and its possible results.  

Participants attending this session will: 

  • Learn how companies over the last several years are using these technologies to change / enhance their business
  • See business case examples of how companies are using it cut costs and for competitive advantage
  • Envision ways to utilize Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality in a learning and development environment
