Aprendizaje y Casos de Exito con Realidad Virtual

Learning and Success Stories with Virtual Reality

Increases knowledge adherence

When we go to a classroom for training, we need to be in front of an interesting, inspiring person who knows how to keep the audience engaged.

The topic should be attractive enough not to distract us, but when we get out of there we will remember maybe 15% of what we were told.

When we train inside a virtual reality simulator, we use immersed vision in the environment in which we will later work.

The hands will be used to operate buttons and knobs with the remote controls and the sounds and vibrations recreate the use of tools.

In this way our learning will move from 15% to 45% or even 85% in certain processes.

Companies such as Johnson & Johnson increased their students’ scores by 233% and were able to complete 252% more steps than in traditional training.

Travel is no longer essential

Thanks to virtual reality training, we can avoid unnecessary travel, saving money and time.

In this way, it is possible to work in a collaborative environment where all users can be trained avoiding the difficulties of cross travel agendas.

The return on investment is immediate because the cost of travel, lodging and meals is much higher than the cost of glasses and development of the simulator.

If we need to gather 40 people in a nearby city, put them up in a hotel for four days and pay the instructor,

We are likely to spend at least three or four times the cost of a virtual training course that can be repeated as often as desired.

Building trust

A virtual environment such as Virtual Involve makes it possible to have staff represented by avatars thanks to virtual reality glasses, developing confidence.

In real life it is not so easy to generate empathy with others, however, in these simulators the fact of having an avatar instead of our presence makes it easy to generate trust.

In collaborative spaces, which are virtual and free us from many inhibitions, it is possible to develop higher levels of trust.

With it, you can learn teamwork skills without having to travel or spend hours getting comfortable with your chair neighbor.

Companies such as Hilton have managed to change the behavior of 87% of their employees towards empathy and their trainings went from 4 hours to 20 minutes.

The trainer devotes the same amount of time, for one time only, to preparing the material.

In training based on current methods, it is necessary to repeat the entire site set-up, facilitator, attendance and travel over and over again with the difficulties that this entails.

If we add to this the fact that retained learning is only 15%, the team must be retrained in rooms or by an on-site expert who will teach them on-site and the actual elements of the job.

When training in virtual reality, the same trainer only has to spend one time preparing his material and hand it over to the developer to be repeated as much as needed.

Thanks to this, the training team can dedicate time to prepare more and more effective materials using their time efficiently, as we already know about the scarcity of these resources.

Minimal retraining costs

By having the material finished and loaded into the virtual reality goggles,

the user can repeat it as many times as he/she needs, in his/her space and in the time he/she can.

In this way we use everyone’s time wisely and the costs will be only those of the user’s time.

If we add the cost of the trainer, travel and meeting rooms,

labor time spent on commuting, cost of stopped machinery and labor accidents, the Return on Investment is much higher.

Companies such as Nestlé saved around US$100,000 per month in learning expenses.

The experience delivers more learning than a classroom.

When using virtual reality tools, we put into practice almost all the senses by using hearing, sight, touch, muscle memory (there are even devices to simulate smells).

This way we train in the same way as in the real environment and this leads to the user arriving at his work area knowing the space, the machines, the tools and the processes, having “lived” them.

Productivity then skyrockets because the person does not go to his or her memory,

nor to your notes, nor to the user’s manual as much as you do when you go to a classroom.

Couple this with a virtual meeting environment like Virtual Involve,

the experience is enriched by having everyone in the same space, immersed in knowledge and a space that emulates the corporate.

In these tools, it is possible to share three-dimensional models of the products,

BigData viewers, corporate meetings for the review of a Balanced Scorecard or a board of directors meeting where we can keep track of each person.

Reduces occupational hazards and fatalities

We can certainly prevent accidents and reinforce safety recommendations at work.

When working in virtual reality we recreate the spaces without having people operating machines turned on or dangerous spaces before we are ready for them.

Nor should we supervise them for a long time until they demonstrate that they have learned, because thanks to virtual reality the person has learned much more.

In this way we avoid deaths due to occupational accidents, dismemberment,

lawsuits, detained machinery, investigations by control and surveillance entities and our internal auditing processes.

On the other hand, absenteeism due to training was reduced by 90% at the Hilton hotel chain.

TwoReality, leading virtual and augmented reality agency.

VR is a clearly growing, accessible and versatile technology with a lot of room for growth in Spain, Colombia and Mexico.

Virtual reality companies in the country are still scarce, mainly dedicated to entertainment use and for this reason TwoReality is becoming the leading virtual reality agency in the country.

At TwoReality we have more than ten years of experience in the development of VR applications.

We have worked with major brands such as Banco Santander, Bacardi, RedBull, Reebok or Bayer, allowing us to be the main virtual reality reference in Spain.

From TwoReality we continue to create the best content and applications for different devices. Tell us about your project.
