Study into the effectiveness of VR training

Recent research by PwC shows that VR training methods provide 4 times more focus than e-learning and 35% more confidence about what has been learned. In this study, the results are compared with classroom learning, e-learning, v-learning. A summary:
• 40% of the v-learners saw an improvement in confidence compared to classroom learners and 35% improvement over e-learners to act on what they learned after training in VR.
• V-learning is the most cost-effective way of learning when it’s done on a large scale. At 375 learners, VR training achieved cost parity with classroom learning. At 1,950 learners, VR training achieved cost parity with e-learn. At 3,000 learners, VR costs become 52% less than classroom.
• V-learners completed training 4 times faster than classroom training.
• V-learners felt 3.75 times more emotionally connected to the content than classroom learners and 2.3 times more connected than e-learners.
• Three-quarters of learners surveyed said that during the VR course they had a wake-up-call moment and realised that they were not as inclusive as they thought they were.
• V-learners were 4 times more focused during training than their e-learning peers and 1.5 times more focused than their classroom colleagues.
