Overview of event

Currently, custom engineering is required to integrate AR-enabled training solutions with existing learning management systems. Without a standard, enterprises must repeat the integration with each source of learning content. IEEE ARLEM defines an overarching conceptual model that describes interactions between the physical world, the user, and digital information, the context for AR-assisted learning and other parameters of the environment. Adoption of this standard will facilitate the creation of AR-enabled experience repositories and online marketplaces for Augmented Reality-enabled learning content.


This webinar will begin with a presentation by Jennifer Rogers describing why large enterprises wish to use AR as a complementary visualization method for delivering complex instructions and training materials. Ms Rogers will also describe some of the challenges learning organizations face when managing delivery of diverse AR-enabled course-ware to employees in the field and training center settings. Prof Dr Fridolin Wild will then introduce the IEEE ARLEM specification and the IEEE working group plans to support developers. Rob Christie will share the views of a learning technology provider and the motivations for NexTechAR to implement ARLEM.

Attendees will learn:

  • Current challenges for learning systems users and providers when seeking to use AR for employee training and upskilling,
  • Introduction and overview of the IEEE ARLEM specification conceptual model and data formats,
  • IEEE ARLEM WG future plans, and;
  • Next steps those who wish to implement the ARLEM specification can follow.
  • Why and how NexTech AR Solutions is adopting ARLEM
