AR, VR & 360 Video

No longer just buzzwords, Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR) and 360 video are here to stay. LEO Learning’s team of experts has delivered some of the industry’s most innovative digital learning solutions and can guide you in your first steps using these exciting new immersive technologies.

AR, VR and 360 Video: We Know What Works and When

LEO Learning have developed deep expertise in how VR, AR and 360 video can be harnessed to deliver impactful and highly-effective learning experiences. We always put learning effectiveness at the forefront of our solutions, and our experts understand when and where these technologies will have the most impact.

How to Use AR In eLearning

AR helps with point of need, just-in-time learning.

In a world where products and services are increasingly complex, the ability to maintain detailed up-to-date knowledge becomes increasingly challenging. This is where Augmented Reality eLearning has the most potential, delivering learning in-situ and at the point of need.

AR overlays content on top of real objects and physical environments. Using a headset or mobile device, learners receive instant, highly-relevant learning content and support integrated directly into their real-world experience.

Whether they’re operating complicated machinery or need detailed product information on the shop floor, AR enables the delivery of critical information as and when your learners need it.

VR in eLearning: New Worlds, New Possibilities

In eLearning, VR technology allows you to immerse your learners in new environments, reduce risk, and enable deep learning

VR provides an entirely computer-generated environment for learners to step into. Unlike 360 video, VR gives learners an opportunity to experience environments and interact with objects they wouldn’t be able to in the real-world.

There are many powerful applications for VR in learning, including:

Collaborating in groups to solve problems

Delivering immersive product knowledge to salespeople and customers before a product has launched

As part of Learning Technologies Group plc (LTG), LEO Learning collaborates with our award-winning VR specialist sister company, PRELOADED, which has created groundbreaking VR experiences for the the BBC, Science Museum and Tate Modern.

360 Video for Cost-Effective Immersive Learning

Also known as 360-degree video, 360 video places the learner in the center of a fully immersive environment in the same way as VR, but shows a film of a real location, rather than a computer-generated one.

The technology used to create 360 video has developed rapidly in the last few years, making it a cost-effective way to deliver powerful, immersive learning.

LEO Learning’s in-house Moving Image team can film high-quality video for 360 video projects and our learning experts ensure the final result delivers on your learning goals.
