This client edition of our Learning Insights newsletter highlights a few features in the learning & development world. First, we thank Larry Strasner for shining the spotlight on virtual and augmented realities with his MetaVRse relationship. Second, for those who were unable to attend our last Learning Views webinar, the recorded presentation is available. We also recap our various learning forums and ways to connect with us on social media along with requests for your participation in our L&D conversations and referral reminders. We always look forward to hearing from you on the topics that are most interesting to you – drop us a note and let us know!
Virtual & Augmented Reality Featured Partner
With the rise of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technology and solutions, we are already seeing great use cases in the corporate training and learning world. Just think, you don't have to leave your office for training; and by merely putting on a headset, you are transported to any location in the world in a realistic environment where you feel like you are literally in the room. I was at a medical device conference recently, tried on a headset, and was able to conduct a simulated knee surgery on a virtual patient sitting on a operating table all in a virtual environment that felt real. Technologies like this will save companies money, while providing a full or complimentary training environment.
I had the privilege of interviewing a leader and pioneer in virtual and augmented reality recently when I sat down with Alan Smithson, CEO of MetaVRse, which is a premier VR and AR consulting and product development company..
Job Aids that Boost Performance
Our last Learning Views webinar was another “sell out” with capacity maxed out, but we’re pleased to bring the recorded presentation to everyone interested. Check out the “Exemplary Job Aids Boost Performance” title and video. TrainingPros and Harrisburg University partnered to host Russ Powell and Joe Halpin with Peregrine Performance Group, LLC for this highly interactive session to get clients and consultants alike to flex their training muscles. While they might not have the sex appeal of sleek on-the-job eLearning solutions, job aids are the foundation of a well-constructed learning program. Important tips on learning how to recognize as well as design and create an excellent job aid were covered in detail in this webinar.
