How is Virtual Reality technology revolutionising training and how can it help training in a post COVID world?

From emergency services like UK police forces to Train Operating Companies, manufacturers to educational establishments, everyone is now assessing virtual reality as a method to make their training content more immersive and interesting. It offers the potential to drop a learner into a safe and secure scenario to gain important and crucial skills at their own pace for little cost overall. Now with COVID impacting classrooms, teaching methods and access to training, how can the virtual world be used to give this knowledge and ensure that skill levels can continue to be developed across all industries. During this session you will learn:

  • How is VR being used across different industries?
