Learning in the flow of work via immersive learning is the best way for talent development professionals to meet employees where they are and equip them with the knowledge to thrive in their roles. This guide illuminates what it takes to identify, define, market, design, deploy, and sustain a robust immersive learning (XR) initiative.
We're truly thrilled to share the result of several months of collaboration with editors and partners of Association for Talent Development (ATD) on the TDatWork December Issue: A Framework for Immersive Learning. This guide is based on personal experience deploying #ar use cases on a national scale for large organizations. It combines passion for #learning and #xr with a documented model for the successful deployment of #augmentedreality and for #immersivelearning. All #leaders can use this 20-page guide to understand the hype and get tactical about adopting #learningtech now.
Picture this. You walk into an electronics store, excited to bring new life to your living room with a whole new system before family arrives from outta town. While talking with a salesperson you ask, "How easy is it to set up this system with other connected devices?" Your salesperson, using a tablet they've been holding since you walked in, says, "Let me show you!
In seconds they're walking you through the details using a 3D model visible on their tablet. You're able to see the connections, menus, and other detail with ease. Your salesperson says, "What's really cool is you can access these same 3D details with your smartphone, any time." Relieved to know you won't have to memorize technical info or special steps, and impressed by how helpful the in-store experience has been, you're ready to bring home your new entertainment center. Done and done.
AR and other XR platforms make it possible to transform how people thrive in their role at work. When we look beyond the sale, XR solutions transform how customers are supported, and can drive strong positive feedback from end users. For every piece of content within your LMS, there are 10 pieces of content that deserve a longer shelf-life through a robust XR learning strategy, which is exactly what Verus Learning helps organizations bring to life. The #futureofwork isn't around the corner, it's #now.

Is your learning strategy truly modern, mobile, and people-focused?
The truth is many leaders are challenged by the rapid pace of change they and their employees are facing. Globally the sheer volume of information being created, distributed, and managed makes it seem impossible to digest even the most basic facts in a timely manner. While the rate of change and volume of information isn't likely to slow down, new tools and technologies can help stabilize the overall workforce environment. Chief among these technologies is the use of Augmented, Mixed, and Virtual Reality platforms. Each solution offers unique user-specific value that can be realized with a well-built strategy for design, deployment, adoption, and ongoing support. This is where Verus Learning brings value, by working directly with organizational leaders in human resources, IT, development, and operations to transform training into learning, in the flow of work.
With people at the center of our recommendations, Verus Learning never presents solutions without a defined audience as the beneficiary, combined with a roadmap for specific year-over-year improvement to the learning function. Unlike other consulting firms, Verus Learning drives a process that equips and educates senior leaders, directors, managers, and teams to bring about visible improvement that is built on validated and clearly-defined outcomes. How do we achieve lasting results? Through our persistent focus; our core message: it's about people.
