While learning previously was conducted only in classrooms, the rise of technology has enabled teaching and learning in e-learning mode.
Teachers, facilitators, and learners have become much more tech-savvy. They look forward to interactive experiences throughout the learning process, however, there is a visible gap between the current state of learning and learners’ expectation of digital course content.
As digital learning models are becoming popular with academic institutions and corporates, traditional learning content and pedagogy pose various challenges. The lack of interactivity leaves learners uninterested and unmotivated thereby reducing their attention span. The absence of technology-enabled teaching pedagogy makes it challenging to explain abstract and complex concepts. This drives the need for hands-on, digital content delivered in a multi-device format.
TCS’ Immersive Learning Content Services enable schools, universities, and corporates to provide learners with best-in-class, interactive, and customized digital learning experiences.
TCS uses augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), gamification and simulation technologies to create engaging content delivered in multi-device formats to ensure ease of access. It leverages instructional design principles and techniques to develop interactive content and build enhanced learning experiences.
TCS’ solution uses a learner-focused strategy to build an immersive, interactive, and engaging learning environment.
Key features include:
Customized digital immersive learning: Customized interactive e-learning solution that includes interactive content such as storytelling, scenario-based decision-making, animations, and constant immersive content interaction mechanisms to keep learners engaged. It can easily fit into learning paths or curriculums to track the learning progress. TCS uses technology to support learning design to create enhanced experiences for learners.
1. Augmented reality (AR) – An AR-based immersive experience created for straightforward learning content enhances the experience. Web-based AR can be part of regular web-based training (WBTs) and can be changed from simple click learning to interactive learning.
2. Virtual reality (VR) –A virtual environment is created with the help of wearable devices to offer an immersive onboarding experience to new hires and students. Teaching and learning in subjects such as history, geography, and environmental studies when taught in a virtual mode become a lot more engaging.
Game-based learning: Games enable learners to apply the knowledge gained during the learning process, increasing their attention span, and motivating them to complete the learning paths assigned to them.
Simulation learning: Interactive, web-based simulations help learners understand complex concepts by applying them in real-world situations. These help learners practice and learn from their mistakes without impacting business outcomes adversely.
3D learning: A spatial 3D experience solution drives next-level, immersive learning possibilities, enabling compelling product training experiences.
With TCS Immersive Learning Content Services, educational institutions and corporates can realize a number of benefits.
Key benefits include:
High learner engagement: Engage students or learners as partners and improve their attention span by delivering interactive, flexible, and enhanced learning experiences.
Higher course completion rate: Design a digital, interactive, and inclusive learning content ecosystem to motivate learners by arousing their curiosity and increasing the online course completion rate.
Longer retention of learning: Improve comprehension of concepts, help teach and illustrate abstract and complex concepts with structured instructional design, adult learning theory-powered content, and ensure longer learning retention.
Equity in education: Cater to different learning styles and create e-learning solutions that are equally accessible and inclusive for everyone, including those with disabilities.
Compliance to industry standards: E-learning solutions compliant with global industry-specific standards like SCORM, AICC, and API can help track the learner’s progress.
