LS707 Using Augmented Reality at Coca-Cola Beverages - Florida

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Thursday, March 23


International South

It is every company’s goal to have an onboarding experience that gets new employees up to speed quickly and helps them truly understand the company’s brand. When a team at Coca-Cola Beverages Florida looked at what they could do to innovate their onboarding and make it more effective, one new technology came to mind: augmented reality (AR). AR can create immersive experiences and let people add new layers of content to the world around them. Could it also work to help new hires become contributing team members as quickly as possible?

In this session, you’ll learn more about Coca-Cola’s experience with AR technology in its onboarding while also building strategies for leveraging this technology in your own training and performance support projects. Using apps available on your phone, you’ll be able to experience a portion of the Coca-Cola onboarding experience firsthand. You’ll then explore the lessons learned from the development of this project, get tips for how AR could enhance training at your own organization, and find out what tools you might want to start developing with.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How you can use AR apps to enhance training experiences
  • How Coca-Cola Beverages Florida has used AR apps in its own new-hire training
  • What the challenges and opportunities are for incorporating AR into L&D projects
  • What tools are available for people new to developing AR content

Novice to intermediate designers, developers, managers, directors, and senior leaders (VP, CLO, executive, etc.).

Technology discussed in this session:
Augmented reality apps such as Aurasma, Layar, and Blippar.
