XR Definition

Extended reality (XR) is a universal term inclusive to immersive learning technologies virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR). 

  • Virtual Reality — VR training creates a simulated learning environment where learners can complete realistic interactions with objects and people. 
  • Augmented Reality — AR training adds interactive, digital elements to a live, real-world environment through a phone, tablet, or headset.
  • Mixed Reality — Uses advanced computer technology, graphics, and input systems to blend physical and digital worlds. 

These technologies extend reality by adding to or simulating the real world through digital materials, and are an effective way to modernize corporate training programs

Virtual Reality Training

VR training allows learners to develop their skills and encounter true-to-life scenarios without facing real-world risk. VR training utilizes an environment made up of 360° VR (pre-recorded video) or full VR (full simulations).

  • 360° VR — Places learners in a fixed position and uses an environment made of a recorded video, providing a 360° view.
  • Full VR — Uses an entirely digital environment that allows learners to move freely within their virtual environment and complete realistic interactions with objects.

Augmented Reality Training

Augmented Reality Training

AR training adds interactive, digital elements to a live, real-world environment through a phone, tablet, or headset. AR training may use any of the following technologies:

  • Image Recognition — Learners scan real-world 2D images and overlay 2D video, text, pictures, or 3D objects on it.
  • Plane Detection — Places a digital 3D model on a real-world flat surface, like a tabletop or floor.
  • Object Recognition — Attaches a 3D digital object to an existing real-life 3D object.

Mixed Reality Training

MR utilizes both AR and VR to blend the physical and digital worlds. This type of XR uses advanced computer technology, graphics, and input systems that allow learners to co-exist and interact with physical and digital objects in real-time.

With mixed reality, learners can direct their vision in 360° across an entire space and in every direction. Learners can view pictures, watch videos, and complete realistic interactions with objects and people.
