Webinar: How VR & AR are Transforming Training, Education & Worker Guidance: Sharing Strategies with Raytheon, Applied Materials
As virtual and artificial reality take hold in worker training, education and guidance, specialists join exclusive VR Intelligence webinar, July 31, 9:00am PT/12:00pm ET/5:00pm BST.
As with any novel and paradigm-shifting
technology, the initial boom of virtual and artificial reality (VR/AR) has seen
a vast array of industries attempting to leverage its benefits, from
entertainment to product design, marketing to construction. While some
applications of XR have proved themselves less promising than others, research
from ABI shows that the global enterprise VR training market is expected to
grow to $6.3 billion by 2022, up from $216 million in 2018; a vast leap by any
The burgeoning growth of the immersive
learning sector has already thrown up several key benefits: with remote
training possible, physical distance between experts and businesses has been
all but eradicated; real-life situations can be mirrored, allowing employees to
reach greater skill levels in less time; operational costs (from
transportation, equipment and labor hours) can be greatly lowered; and through
tracking (of behavior, eye movement or gestures), the gathering of data promises
vastly enriched analytical capabilities. With such potential on the horizon, it
is essential that organizations manage the process of leveraging XR
technologies effectively, or risk falling behind as others take the lead.
To address these opportunities and more, VR
Intelligence are hosting an exclusive webinar, ‘How VR & AR are Changing
Training, Education & Worker Guidance’, taking place Wednesday, July 31st,
2019, at 9:00am PT/12:00pm ET/5:00pm BST. Moderator Amy Peck, CEO &
Founder, EndeavorVR will be joined by John Cogliandro (Senior Engineer,
Special Projects, Raytheon), John O’Shea (Head of VR & AR Enterprise
Applications, Applied Materials), Mark Lee (Board Member, Immersive
Learning Research Network and Adjunct Senior Lecturer, Charles Sturt
University) and Michael Bloor (Co-Founder & CRO, iQ3Connect, Inc).
The webinar will explore how companies are using XR technologies to improve
training across different organizations and what impacts they are seeing on
training efficiency, ROI and improved employee experiences.
- In which industries are VR
& AR having the biggest impact on training and
- Hear why the changing workforce now expects better technology-led
training, and how VR is enabling this
- How are education providers
increasing using immersive technologies and
experiences to improve & accelerate learning?
- What benefits can be had in
terms of time and cost savings, and how are
companies measuring this?
- What’s the place of AR – is it best placed for training, real-time worker guidance, or
Those who cannot join live will be sent the recordings once the
webinar has run.
