VR training has become more prevalent in recent years as it prepares employees for the workplace immersing learners in a realistic and simulated environment. Using VR technology alone, however, will minimise the success of employee training.
We believe that our formula maximises the effectiveness of VR training. Here is how!
Relevance and Authenticity
VR training scenarios should be as accurate as possible to the workplace conditions that an employee would encounter. Matching real-life situations that an employee will face in their job will enable them to comprehend the training more effectively. Here at MOONHUB, we use a 360° camera and include real-life actors and environments in our scenarios to recreate possible interactions in the workplace. Using real-life scenarios over CGI provides a more immersive and realistic experience for the learner, leading to better information retention as they provide more accurate and relevant context, and improve the user’s ability to transfer their learning to real-world situations. Additionally, they can offer a safe and controlled environment for learners to practice and develop their skills without the risks or consequences associated with real-life training.
Your scenarios should also be personalised to meet the needs of your company. By tailoring the training scenarios to the specific job roles and responsibilities, training will become and stay more relevant and meaningful and employees are more likely to retain the information they have learned and use it. MOONHUB offers a bespoke option, which allows your company to tailor their training specifically to the needs and wants, ensuring that the training is relevant, engaging, and effective, leading to better outcomes and longer-term success. Comparing customised VR training with generic training, employee performance increased by 25% and a 30% increase in trainee engagement.
Evaluation and Feedback
Regular evaluation and feedback are essential to ensure that the VR training is having the desired impact. The training should be regularly assessed to determine its effectiveness and to identify areas for improvement. Feedback can be used to make any necessary adjustments to the training to ensure that it remains relevant and effective. Alongside our patent-pending spot and jot-scoring technology, MOONHUB showcases each individual’s results after completing each scenario in our data-rich dashboard. Our dashboard enables an organisation to pinpoint blockers in their teams and better streamline operations.
VR training should be designed to encourage active engagement from the employee. This can be achieved by incorporating interactive elements such as follow-up questions to test a learner’s knowledge. MOONHUB’s training modules are designed to completely immerse users in a low-risk, highly interactive environment that encourages replay-ability. Our models make it so that users strive to repeat the training as many times as they wish to improve their scores and their on-the-job skills.
To sum up, using VR technology in employee training offers companies a highly effective option to get employees ready for the issues they will encounter at work. The relevance and authenticity of the VR environment, promoting active engagement, customising the training, and routinely analysing and delivering feedback are just a few of the variables that must be taken into account to enhance the success of VR training. By adhering to these fundamental guidelines, businesses can guarantee that VR training is both efficient and interesting and that staff members are well-equipped for the difficulties they will encounter at work.
