Augmented Reality for Life Sciences | Scope AR
Training in augmented reality provides effective learning and retention by removing cognitive barriers, creating strong connections to content, and narrowing focus on the subject matter. Our brains are undoubtedly designed to understand the space immediately around us and what is happening in it. This is how humans have learned-on-the-job (in “full 3D”) for thousands of year.
Augmented reality training removes this burden, by simply delivering the information directly into 3D space around the trainee. This is why students consistenly echo feedback that “it’s like I was there.” This is particularly valuable in applications when the subject of training content is difficult/impossible to move. Augmented reality makes it possible to train on a jet aircraft engine in your living room, without any measurable degradation of training quality.
With Scope AR, the time to train and certify your staff, customers, and technicians on new technologies can be dramatically reduced – by as much as 90% or more.
Unparallelled engagement, knowledge retention and competency improvement
AR projects eye-catching information into the real world, and optimize around the trainee’s gaze and gestures, making it almost impossible to tune out. Because of this supercharged engagement, learning deepens and without the usual impediments of distrations and context switching. These result in profound impact on competency, comprehension and retention.
This isn’t just theory, the results are reflected in the real world. WorkLink customers report increased test scores across the board when compared to their legacy baselines. These higher scores then translate into better quality products, services, and employee satisfaction.
Train and on-board hires faster
Technology waits for no one. As new tech rapidly emerges, new and existing hires cannot afford to spend 6-12 months in legacy training programs. Instead, trainees must reach functional competency within constantly shifting evironments.
Augmented reality accelerates training by making it much easier and faster remember facts and understand basic concepts. This then shifts the mental load away from areas of the brain devoted to memory retention and toward the area of the brain responsible for critical thinking. The training program can now engage and challenge the trainee in analysis and evaluation, and offer immediate confirmation of absorption.
