WHEN IS VIRTUAL REALITY THE BEST SOLUTION FOR TRAINING?
I spent a lot of the past week researching V.R. training solutions. I found great examples of companies like Amazon, Johnson & Johnson, even NASA, investing in creation & implementation of virtual training solutions.
I’ve seen some amazing stats on the effectiveness of V.R. training, over standard training (generally about 240% more procedural retention).
I’ve looked at the expertise it takes (and at times doesn’t take) to design learning experiences in V.R.
In the today’s distanced world, V.R. offers a lot of solutions and a lot of challenges, from budget, battery life, & device storage to programing skills & a business culture willing to utilize this approach.
So, I want to ask all brilliant forward thinkers out there:
In what circumstances do you think V.R. is the best training option?
What would be your fears (rational or irrational) about creating V.R. learning experiences?
