If your company is looking to create training videos for new employee on-boarding or remote worker training then consider investing in Virtual Reality 360-degree training video for the following 5 reasons:
1. Invest In The Best:
VR 360 video production cost is no greater than standard video production so why not invest in content that employees will actually want to consume and the information is proven to be retained at a much higher rate by trainees. 360 video can be played back on any smartphone for free or through a $200 standalone Oculus Go headset for a fully immersive experience.
2. VR Training Memory Recall:
We typically remember 10 percent of what we read, 20 percent of what we hear, 30 percent of what we see, 50 percent of what we see and hear … and 80 percent of what we personally experience. VR 360-degree video triggers the memory-writing areas of the brain mimicking personal experience and thus allowing a trainee to retain and store 80% of what is being taught.
3. VR Provides a safe training environment:
For the most effective training trainees must recreate not only realistic scenarios, but also the emotions, sensations, and distractions that make up your training environment. Taking trainees into the real world exposing them to hardardous scenarios is unsafe. VR training allows you to immerses trainees in stressful environments in a safe and controlled way.
4. Increases Trainee Focus:
Sitting in a training session or watching video content is hard as the mind wonders, tunes out and gets distracted by whats happening around you. When immersed with the VR headset on and in a training session Trainees are 100% focused on the training. It’s new and unique so it’s enjoyable and memory retention is proven higher.
5. Accountability & Fun:
VR training can be built into a simple app which logs data on who has completed each training module. Trainees will actually want to participate in VR training sessions because it’s unique and a lot of fun compared to sitting in-front of a computer to watch a standard boring video (and participants will actually retain the info).
