  2. 2. What is Virtual Reality? In simple words, virtual reality is when a person is immersed in a computer generated, simulated environment, that he can explore or interact with. The experience is generally made more realistic through the stimulation of the user’s senses including vision, hearing, touch, etc. According to, Virtual Reality is “an artificial environment that is created with software and presented to the user in such a way that the user suspends belief and accepts it as a real environment”.
  3. 3. A brief history of VR Virtual Reality has indeed come a long way since it’s inception, and one of the main areas in which it is steadily making its mark is corporate training and online education. The primary reason why more and more organizations are choosing to use VR in training for their employees is that the immersive nature of virtual reality enables the employees to get a more hands on and practical training experience without having to worry about any risks or fear of making mistakes. Though the concept of VR gained traction is the 80s and 90s, there were elements of virtual reality as far back as 1860s. The modern concept of virtual reality was first referenced in 1935 by science fiction writer Stanley G. Weinbaum in his short story Pygmalion’s Glasses, years before the term was even coined.

  5. 5. Benefits of using Virtual Reality in Training Decreases Risk Factor: The major benefit of Virtual Reality in training is that it simulates risky or dangerous situations in a controlled environment, thus removing the risk factor associated with such tasks. This not only allows the learner to get a more hands on training experience of risky situations but also helps alleviate his fear of making mistakes. Visual Approach: It’s true that people retain better what they can see or experience rather than simply what they are made to read. VR in training makes use of this and creates a more visual learning experience for the learner, improving his understanding and retention capacity. Innovative and enjoyable: Innovative and enjoyable: VR for training, being a fairly new concept in training, and with it’s promise of an immersive and enjoyable learning experience, is especially attractive to the learners and thus helps in creating more learner engagement motivation.
  6. 6. Benefits of using Virtual Reality in Training Simplifies complex data: As with visual approach, when learners are able to actually experience difficult or complex situations themselves they are better able to grasp the handling of those situations. Virtual Reality in training is able to simplify the complex nature of certain situations by allowing the learner to experience it himself rather than just trying to learn about it from written data. Real world scenarios: VR for training is especially interesting to use as it can recreate real world experiences and allows the learner to immerse himself in the situation. For example, if your training program involves a real case that the organization has faced in the past, the new employee will have a much better grasp of how to handle the situation by using virtual reality training, where he will get to see for himself what the situation was and how it has to be handled. Remote access: Since Virtual Reality in training creates a simulated environment and does not require a dedicated classroom, it can be conducted remotely, saving both time and money that would otherwise have to be spent on planning and developing a complete training program for the learners.
