How AV Technology is affecting Training & Knowledge Equity for organizations
There’s little doubt that enterprises now need cutting-edge technology solutions to power up their training strategies as well as execution initiatives. The right AV technology and correctly designed solutions can make training engaging, influential, and sticky. Incorporating visual collaboration solutions into learning and training spaces is now essential. Delivering highly impactful learning experiences both online and on-site become critical contributors to both employee and organizational success.
The hybrid workplace is a fluid and dynamic entity that adapts and reconfigures the space with technology to remain connected. Creating an innovative infrastructure that allows multi-point conferencing and two-way AV communication now must become an organic part of training room design to augment training interactions.
AV technology such as video walls and interactive classrooms can also play a big role in enhancing the outcomes of upskilling and reskilling initiatives. Such immersive solutions can drive engagement and build greater participation. It becomes an essential technology to foster learning in a hybrid workplace and helps in building learning equity for the entire workforce.
AV Technology can be a great enabler of great training outcomes especially because effective training and learning programs have now become dependent on effective interactions. Uni-directional training methodologies and learning experiences are no longer relevant in today’s age. Choppy training interactions, poor quality video, and broken audio can hardly be expected to deliver great training outcomes. As such, complementing great training content with the right AV technology solution becomes an essential point of consideration for enterprises who want their upskilling initiatives to deliver powerful learning outcomes.
Training room design, as such, needs careful calibration and should:
· Be designed to share audio, video, data, and documents
· Ensure interactive delivery of presentations and messages
· Allow annotation facility through interactive touch panel display, interactive boards
· Ensure that display devices are powered by daylight view technology for clear projections in well-lit rooms
· Provide wireless projection systems for hassle-free presentation
· Enable capturing, recording, and streaming of audio, video, and presentation over the network.
· Offer multimedia lecterns for the presenter for easy lecture delivery
· Provide sound reinforcement (audio system) for clarity of speech
Along with all this, enterprises also need to prepare to accommodate new trends like virtual reality to power up training programs soon.
A cursory look at enterprises only re-emphasizes the words of Peter Drucker. He said, “The only skill that will be important in the 21st century is the skill of learning new skills. Everything else will become obsolete over time.”
These words are almost prophetic in the modern-day business scenario. As organizational capabilities become directly interlinked with employee success, enterprises need to build the capabilities to make learning a continuous and organic part of their cultural DNA.
AV technology can play a great role in augmenting these outcomes and holds the promise to be the catalyst to drive great learning outcomes. Improved organizational agility, better employee engagement and experience, and higher profitability then become organic outcomes of these investments.
