Busting Five Immersive Learning Myths

You may come across the buzzword "immersive learning" in the corporate world. This new approach to employee training and development is gaining popularity, and for good reason. It combines virtual and augmented reality technology to create interactive and engaging VR safety training.

Let's dispel some myths about immersive learning and discover why it's worth considering VR training simulator for your enterprise.

Myth: "Immersive learning is less effective than a traditional program"

Immersive learning is often more engaging than traditional learning methods and performs even better in regards to information retention. In a virtual environment, employees can actively participate in simulations and role-playing exercises that make the learning experience more memorable and impactful.

Myth: "Immersive learning is expensive"

Many people are mistaken in believing immersive learning is expensive and time-consuming. In reality, it can be a wise investment that pays off down the road for businesses.

For example, research conducted by IBM revealed that “compared to traditional training, VR-based training can reduce training time by 40 percent and improve employee performance by a whopping 70 percent.”

Myth: "Immersive learning is too difficult to roll out"

Many organizations shy away from immersive learning because they think it's too complex to implement. But the truth is, it's easier to roll out than you may think- and often far easier than organising a traditional training programme. For example, at Pixaera we can help you with your VR rollout and training courses like VR mining training, VR manufacturing training or VR OSHA training, and if you're not ready to jump straight into VR, we provide our modules for PC too.

Myth: "Immersive learning makes people nauseous"

If the modules you use have been built to a high quality and you're using a high-quality machine, nausea shouldn't be an issue. The key is to use technology designed for immersive learning and specialized VR training programs.

Myth: "It's too hard to integrate a new learning tool into our LMS"

Having all your learning data in one platform is efficient and effective, so integration is critical. However, it’s often easier than you'd think- for example, Pixaera is already integrated with many top learning management systems and has it's own ready-made training courses like oil and gas VR training, making it easy to keep all your learning data in one place.

Immersive learning is the way forward for large enterprises. It's engaging, cost-effective, and easier to implement than you may think. Don't let these myths hold you back from experiencing the benefits of immersive learning.
