With Rapid advancements in hardware technologies such as high end C.P.U, processors and Solid State hardware; and software technologies for multimedia computer graphics (2D and 3D elements), data processing, data storage, etc., a host of solutions on Virtual and Augmented realities are launched every year in the Indian market. In fact owing to this, the number of start-ups developing AR/VR eLearning solutions has increased significantly in the last few years. Investments by Venture Capital World is estimated to be more than 500 to 600 million according to some research studies, as the possibilities of application in various spaces such as commercial, industrial and enterprise space are huge. These developments in Virtual and Augmented reality domains are creating a heap of opportunities for the professionals, technicians, and engineers to get upskilled; become experts in their respective fields, and move up the promotion ladder. Similarly, this has enabled industrial organisations to train the new or experienced workforce on the required technology or use of industrial equipment.
Why AR/VR eLearning solutions?
Virtual Reality (VR) makes use of headset devices to provide information, and Augmented Reality can be perceived through Handheld Devices. They both operate in a virtual world, filled with humongous quantities of data. When you wear a VR headset, you will get immersed in a virtual world while with an AR device i.e. tablet or mobile, you can view information about the objects around you. AR/VR eLearning solutions are eLearning training based on AR/VR technologies which would provide a new inductee, may be a fresh technician, vast amounts of information about the simulation software, such as AutoCAD 2D & 3D; various parts and working of an equipment; training on Plant Production; estimations of sales of a plant; capital allocation and operating costs for engineering equipment, and expected return on investment on different entities.
Once the new inductee has got thorough understanding about the training topics, he can efficiently use the equipment. Further, AR/VR eLearning solutions would immerse a new engineer in the required environment, giving detailed information about the elements of the environment; their functioning; safety measures and regulations; systems engineering concepts; systems designs; volatile nature of the chemicals and components, chemical processing designs, etc. Thus AR/VR eLearning solutions introduce technicians to the functioning of the workplace and its elements. They also make learners thoroughly acquainted with various activities carried out at an industrial plant through effective interactive and immersive training sessions. Hence, training through AR/VR eLearning solutions help many organisations to increase productivity and generate more businesses.
How VKCL uses Key Performance Indicators (KPI) in AR/VR eLearning solutions to enhance training sessions and learning?
VK Creative Learning had introduced Key Performance Indicators (KPI) in the AR/VR eLearning solutions to analyse and understand the learning curve of the learners,, using certain learning and assessment benchmarks. The benchmarks are set on performance in tests; completion of chapters; time for completion of course, and assessment tests. VKCL’s AR/VR eLearning solutions can be used to train workforce of various industries such as Chemicals, Manufacturing, Engineering Plants, Bio-Technology, Healthcare, Pharmacy, Automobile and many more.
