Using Smart Glasses for Job Training and Education
Gartner predicts smart glasses will have the most impact in heavy industry precisely because “the AR glasses enable on-the-job training of workers”.
As you know, smart glasses can do a lot in the enterprise: They can allow employees to access information via a visual scan or voice command; they can enable easy, hands-free recording or documentation of work environments, tasks, and events; and they can deliver alerts and other up-to-the-minute, task-oriented information right to the eyeline of a worker. In addition, smart glass technology plus augmented and virtual reality are currently being tested in a number of industries to support innovative, immersive training, both on and off the job. These novel takes on job training and education by the likes of Hewlett-Packard and Lee Company are proving not only highly effective but also tremendously time- and cost-saving.
