Virtual reality is a computer-generated, three-dimensional representation of physical worlds. These worlds are immersive, and users can interact with them as if they were real. There is a whole range of RV devices on the market, from cheap cardboard devices (very handy in everyday life!) that work with a smartphone to expensive, professional-quality headsets.

In most cases, companies use virtual reality to enable their employees or customers to practice dealing with real-world scenarios.

Whatever your project, don’t forget that the best technology can only have a limited impact if you don’t deploy it effectively, and that it appears more as a “trendy gadget” than as an added value.

Immersive Experiences: Engagement is critical to training results, and the immersive training environment provided by virtual reality stimulates engagement.

Practice is better: Workers performing difficult or complex tasks can hone their skills without worrying about the consequences in the real world.

Pressure is reduced and creativity increased: As all training is virtual, employees or customers can take risks they would not normally take, test without fear, make mistakes or look for creative solutions.

Preview: Virtual reality technology allows companies to test new initiatives to see how employees adapt to them.

Accelerated learning : Because virtual reality is immersive and compelling, “learners” integrate information faster and retain what they have learned longer. Memory training is linked to emotional response, and virtual reality is an emotionally charged experience.
