Lifelike simulation can enhance learning for almost any situation, but until recently, it has been out of reach for most occupations. Today, thanks to virtual reality (VR), they are within reach of almost any organization.
We can now create a near-perfect computer-generated work context for any job, where people can learn complex skills in a risk-free environment.
High-risk situations that require fine manual skills, like surgery
Where there is a need to simplify complex problems or multiple sensory inputs to allow learners to build on experience
To develop the capability to make rapid real-time decisions
Where we can use real-time feedback to allow people to learn as they explore a realistic simulation of the work context
When we want to reduce time to productivity and overall training cost with virtual work experience
