Virtual reality (VR) has been around for a while. So has Augmented Reality (AR) and a collection of extended realities, but have they made a difference to workplace learning? The answer is an unqualified yes. They are not the answer to everything, but where they can be used, they certainly are being used, and thanks to lower hardware costs, better software and wider acceptance, they have moved from nice idea to practical reality, as this session shows.

 

Extended realities: the hype, the possibilities and the impossible in L&D
Tom Wambeke

The ITCLO’s Tom Wambeke (Chief Learning Innovation) and his 20-strong team devote themselves full-time to researching the latest learning technologies, and using them in practice. In this session he’ll start with a short review of the extended realities technology landscape, then take you through a series of case studies of where Virtual Reality has been used to augment training, not just by replicating a physical environment, but by doing what is not possible in the physical world. Beyond technological headsets, in search for changing mindsets:

  • Setting the scene: where are now with VR, AR and other extended realities?
  • Extended realities create a lot of data – examples of using it well
  • How AR is effecting vocational training positively
  • Case studies of VR boosting learning and performance
  • Where the future of extended realities for learning is heading
