Fully immersive VR simulation training – available any time.
VR allows trainees to access simulations as often as they need.
There is no doubt that simulations are a powerful learning tool. Depending on your industry, they can be time consuming to set up and implement. Often it is impossible to run trainees through simulations more than a few times a year. VR simulations are available any time and they don’t require setup or oversight. More trainees get access to high quality training more often.
Open World VR Simulations
Using StoryFlow, you can create simulations that allow your trainees to behave naturally in the environment. Instead of being on a predetermined track that dictates the order of actions, trainees have the freedom to take actions at any time. This “open-world” freedom allows you to see how ready your trainees are for the real thing.
The experience and competency of your trainees will change over time. You can present learning modules for the same skill with different levels of support. A person who is new on the job may benefit from the heavily guided “teaching” mode of a module. As they progress, they can move through various levels of the same task, finally ending up in full “test” mode where there are no hints or guides. This scaffolded approach to learning helps trainees feel better prepared and more confident on the job.
What if you have a scenario where several different outcomes could occur? With StoryFlow you can create training modules with randomized outcomes. This keeps the training fresh and keeps the trainees on their toes.
Unlike live simulations, people can access VR simulations more frequently and work through them more quickly. With a few headsets in a break room or training room, trainees can work through a module or two in less than ½ an hour. It has been shown that 25 minutes of VR training can replace 3 hours of one-on-one or onsite training.
