How to use augmented reality to create training videos ?
Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that superimposes digital content onto the real world, creating an interactive and immersive experience. The use of AR in training videos has gained popularity in recent years due to its ability to provide learners with a more engaging and effective learning experience. In this article, see how to use augmented reality on training videos to improve the engagement of your training programs.
1. Identify the Objectives of the Training Video:
The first step in creating an effective training video using augmented reality is to identify the objectives of the training. What are the key learning outcomes you want to achieve? Once you have identified them, you can determine how AR can be used to support these objectives. E.g. Does the superimposition meet a need for enlargement of scale, of concretization of an abstract concept?
2. Choose the Right AR Technology:
There are several AR technologies available, each with its own set of features and capabilities. However, it is better to use a tool that is simple enough to be used by the greatest number of course instructors. This is why the Rapidmooc team developed a video recording mode allowing you to add the Augmented Reality effect to your videos, very easily. Thanks to a PPT presentation, our app will be able to add a layer on your reality, and help you presenting elements that appear in front of you ! No technical skills required, no crew needed, the video can be recorded, edited and shared in minutes.

3. Create Engaging and Interactive AR Content:
The key to creating an effective AR training video is to make the content engaging and interactive. You can achieve this by using high-quality visuals, animations, and interactive elements such as quizzes, simulations, and games. Interactive content not only helps to keep learners engaged but also provides them with an opportunity to practice and apply what they have learned.
If you don’t have the resources to create interactive elements from scratch, you can rely on some existing tools :
database of green screen footage and animations :
PowerPoint add-in for scientific/medical 3D models (e.g. anatomy)

4.Test and Refine
Before deploying your AR training video, it’s essential to test and refine the content to ensure it’s effective. Conduct user testing with a small group of learners to get feedback on the content’s effectiveness, usability, and engagement. Use this feedback to refine the content to ensure it meets the learning objectives and is effective in delivering the desired learning outcomes.
5. Deploy and Measure Effectiveness
Once you’ve created an AR training video, it’s time to deploy it to your learners. You can deploy the content through a Learning Management System (LMS), a mobile app, or a web-based platform. As learners engage with the content, it’s essential to measure its effectiveness. You can do this by collecting data on learners’ engagement, completion rates, and performance. Use this data to evaluate the effectiveness of the training video and refine the content as necessary. Compare the results of the augmented reality videos with other formats, to evaluate the added value this effect brings to the learning experience, both in terms of understanding and memorization of the knowledge.
By following the steps outlined in this article, you can create engaging, interactive, and effective AR training videos that help learners achieve their learning outcomes. Remember to choose the right AR technology, create engaging and interactive content, test and refine, and measure effectiveness to ensure your AR training video is effective in delivering the desired learning outcomes.
