Enhancing Vocational Training with Augmented Reality
Published on ResearchGate
This paper introduces the Social Augmented Learning (SAL) application, with which Augmented Reality (AR) can be applied in vocational training and on-the-job training situations. In this way, complex interdependencies of modern industrial machines can be visualized immediately, which facilitates the transmission and training of knowledge-intensive work tasks and leads to an increased training quality. We show the current state of research of AR-use in vocational training and, based on the identified research gaps, formulate the requirements on which the SAL application is based. We will then describe the development, implementation and evaluation of this application, with a focus on the application design. In the context of SAL, we will then answer previously formulated research questions and show further potential for research in the field of vocational training with AR.
