[Bonus Episode] How to make Kimchi using a Digital Twin?

Digital Twins bring many benefits for training: increased engagement, self-paced learning, and the spatial context needed to ingest and digest information.

Since the pandemic, knowledge has become the most iconic and valuable commodity that people started to share online. The obsidional fear of the virus has led people into polarized directions: the withdrawal caused by misinformation and fake news or the self-motivation to learn new skills and turn their life around.

From sourdough bread recipes to school programs and professional training, all teachings can now be found online and can be consumed remotely, without meeting face to face with the teacher, in a previously dedicated learning space.

Self-learning or live classes are now supported by a new arsenal of tools, always more immersive and engaging. But online learning is not about the technology itself, it is about replicating the learning environment, the feeling of presence and belonging in the classroom. Indeed, as our attention span is limited online, we tend to consume content more passively. Knowledge does not stick as our brains need context to compile and organize information. There is a need for active learning behavior and self-discovery, and this is what we stand for at Beamo.

In a corporate and industrial setup, field training is an essential part of a new team onboarding. An expert is dispatched onsite to meet with the trainee in order to review operational tasks, safety guidelines, access protocols,... always in the context of the place where the new employees are expected to work. Training is completed by offsite courses to review basic knowledge and theory.

During the pandemic, companies have been looking to accelerate their digital transformation. This also goes for their training program:

  • From a traditional standpoint, a lot of energy and resources usually go into the training process: in a manufacturing line, production might be slowed down, or in the case of an airline crew training, the plane might need to be grounded for a short time.
  • On top of that, training programs have become increasingly hard to conduct because of travel and gathering restrictions leading to the inability to bring recruits onsite.

As a result, among industry leaders, there has been a growing need to digitize both training content AND training places. As such the Digital Twin has been a perfect candidate for new innovative training programs. They bring many benefits in terms of engagement, self-paced learning, and the spatial context needed to ingest and digest information. As spatial digitization and training content creation becomes more DIY, any company can now both replicate the learning environment, in our case the worksite (a factory, a plane, a construction site…), and embed training materials in their rightful and natural place (manuals, videos,...).

You can virtually learn anything with a Digital Twin, and this is what we want to showcase today, simply by teaching you how to make Kimchi. Why Kimchi? Because if you have been reading our previous blog posts, you will learn that there are as many types of Digital Twin definitions as there are Kimchi recipes. And we want you to learn our interpretation of it, our secret sauce. Also right now, in Korea, it’s the famous Kimchi-making season called “Kimjang” (김장), when communities and families gather together to make a big batch of Kimchi for the winter.

So welcome to the first Beamo Kimchi Class!
