204 How to Successfully Implement VR Training at Scale
12:45 PM - 1:45 PM Tuesday, June 25
We've all heard about the power of VR for learning and the benefits it's providing some early adopters. But many companies are still scratching the surface with how VR can be used to boost learning outcomes and transform business operations. Pilots and PoCs have been deployed and then the question arises: "OK, this was great. But now what?" How does an organization move from a successful VR pilot to a wider-scale deployment?
In this session, you will learn how to deploy VR for training at a wide scale across your organization. You will learn from successful broad deployments like those at Walmart, Verizon, and Fidelity, and learn how these companies approached implementation. You will develop a framework for how to think about VR for training, as well as how to think about deploying VR training at multiple locations, benefiting thousands of employees. Finally, you will learn about data and metrics that have driven large organizations to integrate VR as an everyday offering for employee training.
In this session, you will learn:
- About a few organizations’ wide-scale deployments of VR for training
- How to think about going big with VR across your organization
- Why it makes business sense to deploy VR at scale
- Results and data around large-scale deployments
