Many reports and studies claim there is dissatisfaction with the learning function inside organizations everywhere. And as the workplace and workforce continue to rapidly change, the need to upskill and develop employees has never been greater. Enter VR, which has become the solution to corporate learning’s problems. In its infancy as a new technology, VR has drastically improved the way individuals learn information—and corporate learning has taken notice.

In this session, you will learn how employee training can be accelerated and improved upon using VR technology. You’ll learn why some of the world’s biggest companies are turning to VR to train and develop their workforce and how they’re having success. This session will cover the science behind VR and why it’s such a great fit for learning, as well as the data that proves VR to be a highly effective learning tool.
