Virtual Reality Training Programs for Ultimate Learner Engagement

Virtual Reality simulates any world you can imagine, enabling your learners to encounter true-to-life scenarios without facing real-world risk. You can develop a shared experience for your remote team, let learners interact with virtual scenarios, and provide a safe space to practice technical, hands-on work.

At Roundtable Learning, we partner with organizations to build smart and effective training programs that utilize expert instructional design and technology. As a full-service learning partner, we deliver virtual reality training content to help your employees reach their learning objectives.

What is Virtual Reality Training?

Virtual reality is an artificial environment in which the user is fully immersed in an experience. Putting on a VR headset can transport a user to a new location where they can look around themselves, walk up close computer-generated objects, and interact with items and people.

Examples of VR Corporate Training uses:

  • Scenario-Based LearningRefine soft skills with a first-person perspective of real-life customer situations.
  • Technical Skills - Teach employees how to assemble products or complicated machinery by allowing them to interact with digital re-creations.
  • Multi-Step Tasks - Work through troubleshooting products and repair equipment by outlining the steps and guiding the student to work through the problem step by step.
  • Onboarding - Introduce new employees by showing them the ins and outs of the business, shop floor, process, and more from their own training room.
  • Simulations - Military, aviation, and law enforcement are great examples of simulation-based training where you can work on reactions in hazardous situations.

Types of Virtual Reality Training

Degrees of Freedom, or DoF for short, refers to the number of ways that an object can move within a 3D space. In other words, DoF refers to how humans can move in a VR environment. With VR, you can have 3DoF or 6DoF. Here are the differences:

Full VR / 6DoF / Six Degrees of Freedom
Full VR allows a person with a headset to move freely within a virtual environment. Learners can move forward and backward, up and down, and right and left while observing and interacting with objects placed in the environment, just like they would if those objects were real.

360º VR / 3DoF / Three Degrees of Freedom
360º VR is well-suited for seated or stationary environments, as the position of your learners’ viewpoint, is fixed. Learners can look left and right, up and down, and pivot left and right while interacting with the environment via gaze control or a laser pointer controller. Click To Learn More About 360º VR

How Much Does VR Training Cost?

With any custom learning and development work, it’s going to be difficult to give a set price for custom virtual reality training content. When you want customized 360º virtual reality training materials, it can cost from $20,000 to $75,000 or more. And for customized, full virtual reality training content, it can cost from $50,000 up to $150,000 or more.

Roundtable Learning will work with your team to evaluate and adapt your current training materials for a virtual audience through activities, scheduling updates, assignments, technology, and facilitator training.
