Virtual Reality, Real Impact

26 Apr 2019 8:00 AM | John Heap (Administrator)

I have been involved with training individuals and groups for many years.  I think i know something about what works - and what doesn't.


My main lesson is that 'doing' works - getting trainees to undertake activity to reinforce any knowledge they might have gained.  The closer the activity is to a real-life work situation for which the trainees are being prepared, the better.


This is why I am really looking forward to the impact that VR and AI are going to have on training.




When we can put trainees in a near-to-real-life situation and observe how they get on, the more we can tune our training, mentoring, coaching and skills development processes to deliver maximum on-the-job impact.  VR is about to enter the mainstream - getting cheap enough to deploy to practical -sized  training groups.  It will then take a while for we trainers to learn how to exploit it ... but the results could be amazing.
