Virtual reality is not only a new way to experience games or multimedia content, but a powerful tool used for professional training in many fields. We are not talking about technology of the future: many companies are applying it today, with excellent results. In today’s post we explain how to implement virtual reality in your training processes and the benefits it brings.
This training solution is a support to traditional training, executed in a simulated and occasionally immersive environment, which captures the user’s attention and commitment, enhancing the acquisition of practical knowledge to achieve complete training. It also provides total safety to the worker and allows simulating situations that in real life would be very risky.
How to apply it to your company’s training processes?
For the implementation of a simulator within your organization, we need your company to select a specialist in the subject to be simulated, in order to create an environment and a learning experience as close to the reality of your company as possible.
Together with the specialist, we can define the learning objectives and recreate the work process to be simulated. If we do not have a specialist for the definition of the scope of the simulator and consultations during the development, it will not be possible to meet the expectations and the simulated process will not be effective at the time of implementation.
Once the learning objective, scopes and work process to be simulated are defined, the information is dumped into a storyboard (script), where the experience is designed, after being validated by you.
Once the storyboard is finished, the development of the product begins, through agile methodologies, where the client has a fundamental participation in the construction of the experience.
Once the development of the simulator is completed, the trail run begins. Holos incorporates the specialist within your organization, who will be in charge of carrying out the first tests of the simulator within your company. In this process, opportunities foe improvement may arise that the Holos team channels, and implements in the new versions of the simulator.
- Increased retention: Virtual reality allows employees to retain information between 75% to 90%.
- Cost reduction: Virtual simulation helps reduce infrastructure, materials, time and personnel costs required for real simulations. In addition, virtual training can be carried out at any time and from any place.
- Safety: It allows simulating dangerous or extreme situations without taking risks, which helps more complex industries such as mining or construction to prevent accidents and learn procedures safely.
