IMMERSIVE EMPLOYEE LEARNING & TRAINING IN VIRTUAL REALITY
Virtual and Augmented Reality can serve as a tool and a key element of employee education programs introduced by various departments in companies of all industries and sizes. In this article we are going to shed some light on the application of VR and AR in training, and its benefits.
The benefits of the use of VR and AR for employee training are as follows:
Thanks to AR it is possible to scan, using a smartphone, tablet or AR goggles, the notice boards, safety markings, machines and workstations located in various parts of the workplace, and next display awe-inspiring visualisations, models, infographics and explanations such as restrictions, levels or cutting area.
Properly applied AR technology helps in achieving ergonomics excellence and precision, reducing errors and wastage. Moreover, user manuals backed by Augmented Reality become more transparent and easier attract attention. Employees and users empowered with AR tools tend to be far more familiar with the same content which is contained in often extensive, traditional textbooks and instruction manuals. All necessary information is easily available, employees easier acquire crucial knowledge and expertise, and as a result the risk of errors, malfunctions and accidents is significantly lower.

It is also worth noting that, apart from employee training, AR applications can also serve as a troubleshooting medium in case of technical problems, allowing users to share the screen of their phone with experts who can remotely draw on-screen instructions with a built-in graphic editor. Such changes may be instantly displayed in the form of 3D models in Augmented Reality, and that means the explanations always remain in the same place, regardless of the perspective from which we look at the object. The application is supported by voice and text communication.
