How AR and VR eLearning solutions can be used for industrial applications to enhance productivity?

Augmented and Virtual Reality technologies took the world by storm when it was introduced. Presently, Augmented and Virtual Reality technologies are on the verge of becoming the most dominated and adopted platform in the gaming and infotainment industries in the future. Though it has been around for more than 15 years, other than the gaming industry, not many other industries know how impactful and useful it is to increase productivity and save cost. Some organizations still believe both Augmented and Virtual Reality technologies are the same. So in this article, we will clear the air regarding what they are; their application, and how various AR/VR development companies are developing smart Augmented and Virtual Reality eLearning solutions to boost an industry’s productivity.

A quick glance at Augmented and Virtual Reality technologies

Provides overlaid digital text, images, simulation, or animation to the users to enhance the user’s understanding.

Takes the user to a virtual environment, filled with information in the form of animation and simulation. Users are cut off from the physical world when they are in the virtual world.

No need to wear any headgear. Handheld devices like mobile, tablet, or Augmented Reality  based devices with Augmented Reality apps are enough to experience the Augmented Reality technology.

Users need to wear headsets

Interactive and engaging  

Immersive and engaging 



Why use Augmented and Virtual Reality eLearning solutions?

eLearning solutions is a form of learning tool which contains animation, simulation, text information, infographics and videos – all created in a way so that the learners can quickly grasp a concept or information related to his field quickly. For example, an eLearning solution contains information in a simple, crisp, and compact version covering essential details so a professional gets a deep and comprehensive understanding about a new topic, and may feel like reading more. Thus, eLearning solutions are informative and immersive.

There are many organizations which use fire safety equipment, fire protection appliances, and a range of devices to operate in hazardous environments, such as chemical industry, oil and gas industry, machinery industry, pharma industry, industrial explosives industry, etc. For such industries, AR/VR companies have grown to such an advanced level that they can cater Augmented and Virtual Reality eLearning solutions for any Indian industry so that there is no need for them to look for organizations outside India.

Imagine a situation in the chemical producing factory; oil and gas industry. A newly recruited employee can be trained using Augmented and Virtual Reality eLearning solutions initially rather than directly exposing him to hazardous chemical environments. Once well trained with eLearning solutions, then, he may have the confidence to work in a chemical environment, as he must have understood the safety measures and precautions to be taken. Similarly, in the pharma industry, simulations generated by eLearning solutions can be used to understand and identify active pharmaceutical ingredients; different phases of the drug development process, etc. Thus, the list of use of AR/VR eLearning solutions is endless and it offers a host of cost saving and productivity benefits, and would help an organization’s grow in a big way.
