Virtual reality is one of the most progressive technologies for learning available today.
According to many researchers, VR helps to learn more effectively than traditional methods. VR learning awakens creativity and elicits an emotional response.
VR learning is the reasonof the creative potential increase and the appearance of an emotional response.
Heads of companies have a lot of problems implementing training using virtual reality technologies:
- inconsistency between departments;
- inadequate infrastructure;
- inability to measure return on investment.
However, it can be challenging to implement VR in a company's training system. Successful implementation of VR training requires sustained effort and adaptability.
These four steps may help to ease the implementation process of VR learning:
1 Step one: identify the problem you are trying to solve.
It is the most crucial step for success. Before looking for products and offers, consider your company's needs. What will benefit your company? Do you have technical issues that are causing production failures? Focus on the problems that need to be solved, and especially on ones that damage your company the most.
2 Step two: find the easiest way to fix the problem.
When you know the problem, you need to find out how to solve it efficiently. You can start by fixing the root cause of the problem using simple mechanics in the first version of the VR app. Gamify specific actions and let users feel the impact of their decisions.
3 Step three: know how to measure success.
You can analyze users' actions, or conduct surveys to get quality feedback. Setting the right data points helps ensure that you are not wasting money on ineffective training simulations. The correct data can also inform how you can improve your VR training.
4 Step four: get a feedback.
After launching your VR app, you need to start collecting user feedback. The first version of the app will be fixed and redone multiple times. You can make changes, add new products, or put in test other departments. Communication with your employees will help you to improve VR app and training system itself.
