Augmented Reality In Enterprise Learning: One Step Beyond

In today's modern corporate scenario, finding new ways to engage learners is very crucial. Augmented Reality (AR) and simulation-based learning are the emerging technologies that are gaining acceptance as effective ways of corporate training. AR merges the online world with the real one, allowing you to place digital information into the world around you. It is used for visual guidance over personalized tablets, smartphones and smart glasses to make learning more engaging and effective. Today, modern organizations seek out for latest technologies to get workforce learn more efficiently, making AR to enter the spectrum of latest tools they assess for e-learning.

How AR Eased the Transformation from Digital to Real-life?

With growth in the AR market, plethora of industries are already deploying AR technology in their training strategies. For organizations aiming to attain growth, employee training is essential and gaining significance with time. The hands-on style that AR offers to the new-age workforce improves the learning uptake. This leads to reduced human errors, thereby saving training time and resources by allowing employees to learn more easily and efficiently. Let us discuss few instances where the scope of AR is emerging at a fast pace:

Augmented Reality eLearning

  • As per the study in 2014, implementation of AR via mobile devices reduced the task performance time by 50%, with increase in the employee concentration time by 50%. This resulted in the reduced level of mistakes by 90%. [Source:]
  • Within Healthcare Industry, AR is best used to transfer knowledge to the staff and surgeons on specific medical aids and technologies. Presently, it is crucial to deliver effective training within This helps doctors and nurses to learn routine medical scenarios, without affecting the patients' safety. So, simulations and other virtual learning solutions are embedded to ensure realistic medical scenarios, thereby ensuring better health diagnosis and patient care.
Market Forecast of Augmented Reality

Today, the effectiveness of AR depends on two major elements- the availability of personalized mobile devices and user communities that provide content useful to others. An increasing use of smartphones allied to a consistent rollout of AR based technology improves the overall learning experience. As per Juniper Research, enterprises invested $247 million in AR based technology and mobile apps in 2014. By 2019, it is expected that the revenues will rise to $24 billion. [Source:]

Augmented Reality for workplace training offers a variety of benefits including:

  • Interaction - AR imparts a high degree of engagement as creating a completely immersive environment helps users to virtually change their reality, making the use of technology more effective and dynamic.
  • Retention - As AR based learning engages more users, the chances of users to access the same app or program again increases.
  • Comprehensive Analytics - Virtually, AR-based mobile apps feature in-depth analytics, imparting significant insights into changing user behaviors and knowledge levels. Increased learner engagement generates a high volume of data, thus serving as an optimum source of new information.

Modern organizations consider Augmented Reality to become a crucial part of everyone's reality in the coming few years. Learning imparted through simulations and virtual reality will emerge from different niches to produce incredible benefits to learners, trainers as well as organizations.
