Learning and development teams are usually trained from stuffy manuals or automated programs. There’s usually a snooze fest on the other side of those laptops when teams are being trained on the latest initiatives. However, effective training calls for a balance between the logic of the learning materials and a human touch that makes the learner feel engaged.

You aren’t going to increase learning completion among your employees by boring them into submission. To improve employee onboarding speed, and increase higher learning engagement in your training programs, you need the help of modern technology solutions that are both entertaining and informative. 3D Avatars created with Aquifer can offer L&D teams a way to quickly produce snackable videos that are both entertaining and appropriate within a corporate setting. 

What is a 3D Avatar?

A 3D Avatar acts as the virtual representative of your brand. For instance Geico uses their signature gecko in just about every commercial.This gecko has become a signature motif of the popular insurance company, yet the company has no real-world connection to geckos or wildlife. They’ve used this animated character to tell fun stories that engage their customers as they navigate the usually boring space of insurance. For L&D, the concept of the 3D avatar has a similar use – the ability to quickly create informative, fun and snackable videos that engage your team.

The Benefits of a 3D Avatar

A huge problem within L&D teams is that they have to rely on specific human actors to create their videos. For instance, they may need a senior employee to create videos, which takes time away from that employee doing their actual job. In other cases, training videos may even feature employees that are no longer with the company. Using actual people in your training videos creates a few problems: you either have to take time away from a senior employee, hire an actor, or include people in your videos that will potentially not be involved with your company in years to come. 

With a 3D Avatar, you no longer need a single face to bring cohesion to your training videos. Aquifer’s face tracking feature will allow anyone on your team to use your 3D Avatar for content production. As you’ll see in the screenshot below, our platform tracks facial movements which then translate into your 3D Avatar’s face. 

But are these videos appropriate for the corporate world?

The story you’re trying to convey to your team should be relevant to your brand’s ideals, values and overall mission. We understand that not all training videos call for childlike animated characters. 

Many animation studios offer quick videos that are cartoonish, and just aren’t taken seriously in the boardroom. We understand that different industries call for different tones and overall aesthetics. For this reason, Aquifer offers custom avatars and environments for industries of all kinds. 

Easy to integrate with your current process

Using Aquifer’s platform is as easy as picking up your phone as if you were taking a selfie and recording. Once recorded, you can then edit your video on your phone or desktop. The videos can easily be exported as an MP4 which can then be imported into your current LMS. 

You can also use Aquifer to live stream videos using your brand’s IP. Additionally, you can post your videos anywhere on social media, email, your website and pretty much anywhere else that can be viewed from a screen. 

The Takeaway

You can keep your team engaged with entertaining, fun and snackable videos. You can create a 3D Avatar that represents your brand and overall mission. Anyone on your team can utilize this 3D Avatar, which means you don’t have to rely on senior employees or actors to produce content. Once a video is made, you can easily import your videos into your current LMS and bring some excitement into your team's learning process. 

The ability to capture footage and translate it into animated video in real-time has allowed us to enhance the learning and development process for a technological age. If you’re ready to improve employee onboarding speed and increase learning engagement, then Aquifer is perfect for you. Schedule a demo of Aquifer: https://www.aquifermotion.com/get-a-demo
