DEMONSTRATION: Unleashed VR: Soft Skills Training in Virtual Reality : Event for mLearning Month - September 2017 Other events...
Virtual Reality (VR) offers all of the benefits of e-learning, including scalability, 24/7 scheduling flexibility and being highly affordable in comparison to paying for the time of live trainers. A unique advantage of VR training is its ability to replicate real-life scenarios in numerous interactive ways. Students build knowledge and confidence in safe and judgment-free environments and apply their knowledge in challenging simulations that are otherwise difficult to re-create.

Perspective-shifting training also gives students an understanding of other's points of view, leading to higher levels of empathy and a better understanding of expected behaviours in the workforce.

VR simulations also capture data that can be analysed to provide personalised feedback to students. This leads to a greater understanding of individual strengths and weaknesses.

Finally, VR is enjoyable and an effective way to engage students to develop their workplace skills in a highly flexible and scalable training environment.
