Adopting a Futuristic Mindset
For many organizations, the global pandemic brought to the forefront the discrepancy between the skills people have and those needed for jobs in the digital world. The need to upskill and reskill workers on these technologies is critical for an organization to stay ahead of the competition. Technology is changing rapidly, and if you fail to keep up, you will be left behind. How can you identify obstacles and opportunities?
How to Prepare Your Company for New Technologies
We’ve all experienced challenges when trying to introduce new technologies to our organizations. Some people are open to change while others are not. Future-thinking companies engage with innovative training. A two-tier system is beginning to emerge between the companies that are investing in cutting-edge training platforms and the ones that aren’t.
In this session, we will discuss steps to build a successful implementation plan. I’ll share examples and checklists from my enterprise implementations. If businesses want to avoid falling behind in a post-vaccine economy—due to declining innovation, reputation and, ultimately, market share—they need to take a bold approach to upskilling. I’ll provide the framework and clear steps to use when investigating, selecting, and implementing new technology.
Preparing Your Company for an Immersive Learning Program
Immersive learning is a powerful tool that can help your team achieve learning goals in a meaningful and hands-on way. But within the L&D field, there’s a lot of misunderstanding about what exactly AR/VR can do and how it can be implemented. This can make it challenging to get everyone at your organization—or even just your team—on board with what you need to know to make a successful immersive learning program.
In this session, you’ll explore the steps needed to successfully launch an AR/VR program at your organization, including how to get buy-in and acceptance from various business units. You’ll find out how to create a solid business case for using AR/VR and why. You’ll then learn how to match the AR/VR use case with your business’s core values and ensure that stakeholders understand how this new technology could benefit the organization. You’ll discover strategies for finding appropriate business cases and how to work with an internal team to plan, build, implement, and maintain an AR/VR project.
Designing for Augmented Reality
In this session, you will learn tips and best practices for creating engaging and comfortable AR experiences. You will learn what instructions to include before the experience, how to coach people to get started, and how to design the experience in ways to resolve problems. We will also discuss project management, prototyping, and ready-to-publish applications. You will also leave with an AR example to edit and share with your team!
Build an AR Gamified Interaction Without Programming
Instructor-led training doesn’t have to be confined to the space or platform you’re provided. Augmented reality (AR) offers affordances that can take the learning into a new context, provide key information, and greater engagement in the content to be learned.
In this session you will see how to build an interactive augmented reality experience using an off-the-shelf development tool. Specifically, you’ll be able to experience an escape room with digital clues used to solve a puzzle. Then, you’ll learn how it was created and be provided the step-by-step directions so you can recreate it back at your office.
How to Build VR Solutions on a Budget
There are many factors that can affect the price of virtual reality (VR) training, from the customization of the content to the level of interactions for the user, not to mention the amount and quality of the headsets.
The Tools of the VR Landscape
This session will address the tools of the VR landscape including content, devices, device management, engagement, deployment and data analysis.
How to Measure the Success of VR
This session addresses data – training metrics and usage – and how they relate to VR training. Reporting options for both subjective and objective data will be explored.
Creative Facilitation – Liberating Structures
How can you provide creative session facilitation? Your responsibility for a session is to provide processes where ideas, solutions, and decisions can flow – achieving the session objectives. In this segment, we will discuss facilitation benefits and challenges – along with solutions. Have some fun as we dive into activities to inspire your future facilitations!
Create a Virtual Reality eLearning Project
Virtual reality training is an amazing way to provide realistic immersion for your learners, and now it’s incredibly easy to create this experience with Adobe Captivate (2019 release). This approach is perfect for orientation, simulations, location and product training. Join Debbie Richards to learn how to create two interactive virtual reality-based training projects using Adobe Captivate. You will learn how to easily import 360° media assets and add trackable hotspots, quizzes, and other interactive elements to engage your learners with near real-life scenarios.
