Virtual Reality Training Design
Virtual Reality has now entered the world of learning and development, companies are now starting to see the advantages of VR and AR for training and development and utilising this new technology in a number of ways.
Here at VRE we have extensive experience in training design and virtual reality and are now combining the two to allow companies to benefit from increased training effectiveness.
Why Virtual Reality for Training Design?
VR and AR Training Applications
Virtual Reality Induction Training
VR can automate key parts of your induction training, whether it is orientation of key facilities, equipment and departments at your organisation or specific sector-based knowledge or skills that are unique to your site or operation.
Virtual Reality Health and Safety Training
Health and safety training is well suited to VR, it allows trainees to make mistakes, learn from them through important feedback on their performance. This is a key advantage of VR training which is freedom to fail, trainees see the consequences of their actions and remember them.
VR is suitable for a wide range of health and safety training from industrial and equipment specific to general courses such as first aid and fire safety training.
Virtual Reality Technical Skills Training
VR and AR are well suited to specific technical skills training, allowing trainees to assemble, test, apply, operate and experiment in a VR environment. Any kind of machine or operation can be replicated in high detail and with modern VR tracking a high level of mechanical skill can be developed in high fidelity VR and AR environments.
Porsche reduced the amount of time to identify issues by 40% using an AR application in their workshops.
Virtual Reality Soft Skills Training
VR and AR are actually well suited to delivering soft skills training and can actually be used a broad range of skills not normally associated with VR and AR such as leadership.
We are experienced in delivering soft skills training using the latest VR and AR technology so talk to us regarding any specific behavioural training that you would like to implement in your organisation.
Virtual Reality Specialist Training Design
Specialist VR and AR training can be developed for specific clinical purposes, our team includes Clinical Psychologists so we are able to develop VR and AR for therapeutic applications.
This also includes wellbeing and stress related applications, with VR and AR showing considerable promise in this area in academic research for a broad range of intervention types.
Augmented Reality Training Design
Both VR and AR have their advantages for training depending on whether you are looking for total immersion in the simulated training environment (VR) or you want to overlay training guidance and materials in a real world environment. (AR).
AR is especially useful for example where a complicated piece of machinery or a control panel can be supported with additional instructions showing the trainee exactly what to do on the real world object.
Links to your LMS system
VR can be integrated with your LMS and trainees records can automatically be updated, allowing all performance metrics sent to your learning management system.
VR and AR learning effectiveness can then be easily and effectively tracked giving effective ROI measures for your VR and AR learning.
