Augmented Reality in training & e-learning
Training in engineering
AR is also applicable to engineering training. Machine operators from a wide range of industries can use it to identify and understand complex systems and structures.
By using AR simulations, engineers in training can learn where each part is located, what it does, and how it integrates with other parts. As a result, these learners have a better understanding of mechanical systems.
Workers operating production machines may face similar risks. By using AR simulations to learn how to perform their jobs, workplace injuries can be prevented.
An AR simulation overlays helpful information on top of what the user is seeing around them. As the user interacts with the real world in real time, AR adds virtual elements to the situation. Virtual elements may include text, links, photos, 2D illustrations, virtual 3D objects, audio clips, or videos.
The relevant elements are related to the environment in which learners are located. It is possible that they are interactive and will respond to gestures or voice commands or the user may be able to move them according to instructions.
The construction industry is another context in which AR can be applied to engineering learning. Operators of cranes and other machines can gain a better understanding of their machines by using AR. Construction workers can also benefit from AR when learning how to use their tools and equipment.
Training in sales – Gamification
Serious games are entertaining—that’s why they’re games—but they’re also educational. Because they’re both fun and educational, they’re engaging and effective, making them outstanding training tools.
While interacting with customers, a sales rep could use an app and use elements of gamification to make the learning experience more engaging.
Onboarding new employees
Employee onboarding is another example of interactive learning using augmented reality. The APP can be guided by senior staff that have been filmed with Green-screen. In the APP they ask questions and provide guidance as a part of the virtual training.
As they perform their duties, technology provides real-time guidance. In the case of machine operators, learning effectiveness increases as they learn while experiencing the stress of handling their machines in practice.
Providing safety training
You might spice up your staff's experience if you provide them with an eLearning course on office safety. Machine operators have great benefits by using AR in security training. By using AR simulations to learn how to do their jobs, work related injuries can be prevented.
Training in medical science
AR can meet the training needs of medical, paramedical, and nursing students and staff.
AR eLearning teaches diagnostic skills by overlaying a real-world setting with virtual information. The course also teaches how to determine the most appropriate course of treatment.
Nursing students can develop their diagnostic skills by adding images of injuries to patient models, for example. AR provides these students with a clear understanding of the consequences of their decisions. By doing so, they can see the results of their actions (simulated).
In addition, AR can assist doctors, nurses, and other members of the emergency room staff in preparing for crisis situations. As an example, it may provide information on how to handle a large number of incoming patients - how to prioritize them according to severity and where to send them.
