AUGMENTED REALITY (AR)
Using interactive simulations with relevant scenarios is an innovative way for supporting leadership roles and management with the help of the latest technologies available in the market.
Augmented Reality (AR) applications using mobile devices such as phones or tablets offer a more interactive and fun way for the learner to experience new concepts and take part in more realistic scenarios.
With the advancement of technology and the decrease in cost for powerful devices that can handle 360 interactive videos and Virtual / Augmented reality, it is nowadays very easy to use technology for the enhancement of training and teaching.
The media created can be accessible not only from a computer (desktop or laptop) but also from other handheld devices such as tablets or mobile phones that either cost very little or that the user already owns.
Creation of Augmented Reality can be done either using specialised software packages or using plugins in development platforms or, for people that do not have programming experience, just by using a simple mobile phone application!
