Edgar Dale’s ‘Cone of Experience’ tells us that we remember only 10% of what we read, 20% of what we hear, 30% of images we view… and 90% of what we actually perform. Whether it is used for onboarding new employees, corporate education or learning gestures and postures, virtual reality and augmented reality revolutionize corporate training.
Learning by doing
Virtual reality makes it possible to interact with a remote work environment. Learners can learn industrial processes and interact with machines virtually. Immersive apprenticeship reduces risks significantly.
Pedagogy is much more natural and efficient as learners can reproduce a gesture virtually, something that is impossible with writings. Learners interact in a context bypassing all possible external interferences and nuisances that are likely to distract them.
Immersive training is the evolution of e-learning and can help reduce costs significantly. Learning courses that require actual practice on several physical sites become obsolete since learners can replicate similar scenarios virtually.
They also gain in autonomy. In this case, a large scale deployment requires less trainers than a traditional training course.
How our clients use immersive technologies to train their staff
VR Learning (WebVR) – We help Moët Hennessy provide a virtual reality learning academy of brand storytelling to better train their staff. Employees based in Shanghai can now visit Moët & Chandon’s prestigious cellars in Épernay remotely. These production sites can be experienced in 360° video and VR, on desktop and mobile directly from their web browser.
3D learning – We helped EDF promote their Zero Carbon ambition for Toyota Manufacturing France’s production site. The application was designed for touch screens and was then adapted to a WebVR format.
