Training has largely remained the same for years. A corporate meeting room, a tray of teas and coffees, company logo pen, a pad and few days of cramming in as much information into the sessions as is possible.
A modern world can provide a modern solution to an age-old challenge. It has been known for years that the best way to learn a job, is to get stuck in and have a go. Greater access to VR technology has now made it possible to achieve that level of training, whilst still training.
From real life customer interaction, to recreating assembly lines or even the complexities of brain surgery, VR training can help simulate real world scenarios. Rather than developing different approaches for different scenarios on the job, you can tackle them in an authentic, immersive environment.
Through these immersive experience’s learners give direct responses from thought processes relating to the situation. Rather than a predetermined role play, they can learn much more about how they deal with situations. This is beneficial to the learning process as it replicates on-the-job learning.
In the comfort of your virtual world, you are free to make mistakes without ramification. Easing your leaner into their position is especially helpful for the more anxious amongst us.
Another advancement in technology that has seen demand increase, particularly in the wake of COVID-19, is remote training. For what will undoubtedly become the work from home generation, this access to training from anywhere with a stable internet connection provides a contactless, solitary experience with all the required information packed into the program.
An eLearning program can be tailored to your business, with online resources available for staff to work through as modules or tackled along the way through the learner’s journey into their career. Removing borders from your training offers a more accessible, more flexible program.
Through webinars you can still bring your team together regardless of their geographic location. These reactive technologies build unity through teams, and also provide more detailed results for the trainer. Remote learning can be interwoven with routines seamlessly and at ease, giving live feedback on results, whilst simultaneously breaking down any geographical barriers.
Capitalising on the technologies available for your training gives your company an edge in both agility and results. Virtual and remote training programs offer a flexibility in both access and compiling tailored courses. Beneficial to trainer and trainee, they offer a step above what is expected of any modern employer.
