With a forecast 80 billion connected devices by 2025, the Internet of Things (IoT) is set to transform the way business operates. From AI to VR and the IoT, technology is already having a marked impact on the way businesses maximise profit, improve efficiency and operate.
- Virtual reality is making training more accessible and cost-effective
- Virtual reality is set to change the way we train our workforces. It enables trainers to deliver learning in an interesting and interactive way.
- They can present large amounts of complex information visually, to aid learning and help students retain information.
An additional benefit of virtual reality learning is that it opens possibilities for training large numbers of people remotely, in a virtual setting. The technology could solve accessibility issues for students and save money for training organisations.
Virtual reality gives students the opportunity to learn how to work with specialised equipment by creating realistic 3D models. It opens up opportunities to work with machinery that may, in reality, be expensive or difficult to access. People can learn to use machinery in a safe environment with controlled risks.
Vocations where virtual reality could be used in training:
● Surgery simulation
● Architectural walkthroughs and presentations of design concepts
● Emergency services, e.g. paramedic training
● Combat training
● Aerospace engineering
● Air Traffic control
● Flight simulation
