Virtual Reality Software Development

Virtual Reality is an environment that is simulated through a computerized system. By design this environment is meant to often replicate a real environment. Today's virtual reality systems are displayed on either a computer screen or through a stereoscopic device such as a headset. 

Once thought to be an “artificial reality” we have come to understand that this is not the case. The environments created through virtual reality are not by default an allusion but more aptly an illusion of a simulated world. Through virtual reality it's possible to immerse one's self into an environment that would not normally be accessible. Upon entering this virtual world you will often have the ability to not only explore but also manipulate your surroundings. 


We are now able to give students and employees a learning experience that would never be possible under normal circumstances.

HOW DOES VIRTUAL REALITY BENEFIT TRAINING AND EDUCATION?

Imagine being able to completely immerse your employee or student in a virtual training field. This is the solution that virtual reality can create for education. By using immersion systems in conjunction with educational programs it is possible to give the student or employee a learning experience that would never be possible under normal circumstances.

On the job training will take on a completely different life when done through virtual reality. Through this method of training it is likely that the lessons learned will be retained at a greater rate. It is all-together possible that every business industry have the ability to benefit from training programs that utilize virtual reality. Another benefit to consider when matching virtual reality with education is the ability to have multiple users in various locations all meeting in one virtual environment at the same time.

Training sessions for employees around the globe can happen simultaneously, cutting down on the time and money expended for the training. Virtual environments are almost always the best and safest places to test theories when learning, as there is no fear of real world consequences to mistakes or failures.


While there is some debate about how high retention rates are when combining the 3 types of learning, we do know for sure that retention rates are much higher when we learn by DOING. 

  • Test scores have shown an increase of over 30%. 
  • Staff, employees, and students all show a higher level of engagement with their learning materials. 
  • Businesses and teachers can create the virtual environments that suit their individual needs. 
  • Employers can use Virtual Reality environments to train their staff in situations that are unsafe for real life recreation. 
  • Virtual Reality platforms allow for concrete education of abstract terms.
