Enhancing learning and development through virtual reality
BENEFITS OF LEARNING IN VIRTUAL REALITY
Knowledge retention and memory recall after immersive learning is significantly higher than traditional teaching methods alone.
REMOVES REAL WORLD OBSTACLES
Reduces apprehension and embarrassment, which would otherwise impede experimentation in activities like role-play.
Allows the student to re-visit and repeat lessons multiple times to reinforce key understanding.
Gives independence to explore and interact with topics in users preferred learning style.
Builds confidence in a confidential and consequence free environment.
Novel tech, active storytelling in realistic environments mean a memorable experience becomes an impactful one.
THE LEARNING CHALLENGE
Engagement is low and knowledge transfer from theory to on-the-job is at best, lackluster, despite close to $400bn being spent on employee training.
We’re not all the same. People learn in different ways, usually a combination of visual, auditory and kinesthetic – VR covers them all in the one session.
Learning and development can be costly, inconsistent and geographically challenging to scale.
Learning often doesn’t stick if participants feel self conscious or uncomfortable and are expected to perform.
Completion rates suffer at the hands of dry, disengaging content, which can often do more harm than good if motivation is lacking.
