401 Augmented Reality: The Future of Learning Is Already Here

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Wednesday, February 8

There’s never been a better time to transform the way you think about content availability, deployment strategy, and on-the-job training. Augmented reality (AR) is a truly innovative approach to instructional design that gives your content a longer shelf life, greater visibility, and stronger ROI.

In this session you’ll discover how augmented reality can make training more engaging, relevant, and memorable. Whether paired with larger learning programs as a performance support tool or used alone as part of a microlearning strategy, AR offers consistent value for learner and instructional designers. You’ll gain insight about easy-to-use AR platforms, explore AR best practices and design risks to avoid, and learn how you can use AR to give learners the support they need when and where they need it most—on the job. You’ll also acquire knowledge of the vocabulary needed to evaluate vendors and platforms, so you can make smart investments in this space.

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Identify cost-effective platforms that make AR deployment attainable
  • Amplify current training content with AR to deliver just-in-time learning
  • Leverage mobile devices to put AR training content where it can be valued
  • Use AR to gain insights about what topics matter most to learners and the business
