Playful Tools for Serious Work

Jun 1

01:00 PM - 01:25 PM

Description

Internal training tools - the mere thought of them can put anyone to sleep. Mandatory training is often associated with reading boring paragraphs of text, watching outdated videos, and clicking through multiple choice questions that fail to determine proficiency. With the amount of time and money we invest in training our employees, why do our tools feel like they're stuck in the PowerPoint era?

Fortunately, we are at an inflection point in our thinking and the technology available to us. Emerging technologies like XR, AI, and real-time 3D allow us to create original content faster than ever before. By using tools and techniques from games, which encourage learning and mastery through play, we can create more impactful training tools and experiences for employees.

This talk will focus on how ustwo and MGM Resorts put these ideas into practice using a digital twin of one of their flagship properties. We will discuss how we used game design and development principles, real-time 3D, and AI/XR tools to create a first-of-its-kind training tool. You’ll leave with tangible insights, principles, and practices on how to discover meaningful ways of deploying these technologies in your organizations - impacting efficiency, effectiveness, and the bottom line.
