Did we just become bestfriends! How Virtual Reality Can Enhance the Remote Learning Experience.
By transporting employees into a simulated, realistic environment, virtual reality (VR) can keep us connected and learning throughout the pandemic. Here’s how:
1. It Offers On-demand Training
VR offers realistic training scenarios from the comfort of your own homes. This remote accessibility especially benefits employees who are at a greater risk of contracting the virus, including those who are over 65 years of age and/or with existing medical problems who may not be working right now due to that risk.
With in-person training events being canceled due to travel restrictions and stay-at-home orders, VR gives remote employees access to the training they need when and where they need it.
2. It Can Connect Remote Teams
Teams must remain aligned and connected in order to be successful. With many companies going remote in light of the pandemic, however, this alignment can be a challenge. After all, working from home means no more impromptu lunches with co-workers or morning chats by the coffee machine.
Missing your workmates? VR can connect remote teams through a “virtual workspace,” Meaning you can still interact and collaborate with you co-workers from across the country or the world. And more importantly you can still have your morning coffee and catch up on the lastest office tea.
3. It Simulates Real-world Scenarios
VR can employees keep their customer service skills sharp while non-essential stores remain closed during the pandemic. From relaying product information to handling stressful customer interactions, VR can simulate many of the challenges retail employees face on the sales floor.
Through on-demand training, realistic simulations, and improved connection among team members, VR can help remote employees and organizations succeed during the pandemic. It's a real VR high-five during these trying times.
