Virtual Reality & simulation training
Thanks to the vast developments in virtual, augmented and mixed reality technology, it is now possible for learners to immerse themselves completely in an interactive training environment to gain valuable experience.
At Fenturi, we design these experiences for a diverse range of clients with the aim of transforming organisational performance through the power of participation.
Why use VR in e‑learning?
Simulation training sees the physical boundaries of e-learning removed: no screen, no mouse, no barriers between the learner and the content. Instead, the learner is presented with the opportunity to test their skills in a world of no physical consequences. This makes the adoption of VR in e-learning ideal for recreating dangerous or expensive situations, as it provides a safe environment for users to practice their skills without fear or risk. However, this is not the only benefit. Virtual and augmented reality simulations can benefit your business for a number of reasons:
As VR technology becomes increasingly affordable, simulation training starts to prove a cost-effective solution – especially when dealing with a large, global workforce. Instead of spending money on travel to get everyone in the same room, employees can do the training remotely with a VR headset at a time and place that suits them.
Training staff in hazardous environments can be extremely dangerous, and there is little room for the learner to make mistakes. By recreating the same environment in virtual reality, learners can gain experience of dangerous tasks within a safe and controlled environment, removing the risk of harm or damage.
By taking part in a lifelike simulation, learners gain valuable experience in performing tasks rather than simply observing. Simulations can be built to mimic reality by including a range of outcomes for actions taken, providing the user with the exact experience they will need to handle the job.
