With increasing computing power, connectivity, and falling prices of headsets, Immersive Content such as Virtual Reality
, Augmented Reality
and Mixed Reality are becoming a viable option for teaching and learning. This content brings a positive transfer of learning as it simulates the actual operating environment albeit digitally.
This means learners can be brought to a simulation of a high-risk environment to practice safety protocols and replay scenarios before being placed in a physical environment where the stakes are much higher. Some of the examples are dental surgery procedures or even simulation of building prior to construction. This way, organizations can provide a safer workplace environment for employees and stakeholders by placing only qualified individuals to manage high-risk situations and to mitigate any potential danger.
