Post-Zoom, a VR Boom? Immersive Technologies, Corporate Training, and Education


Businesses have boarded the XR bandwagon in the areas of marketing/user experience as well as employee onboarding and training, largely using asynchronous simulations or immersive experiences. Early XR adoption in university courses seems to be either from a technical skill building perspective or from an angle of exploring the possibilities of immersive technologies.

Synchronous learning in VR is largely overlooked at present, yet has many untouted benefits such as the ability to recreate the magic of community, shared knowledge, and belonging, which in-person training and education offered learners for decades. Learning in VR synchronously can be a meaningful way of enhancing immersive technology adoption in academia and industry.

This panel will discuss the various dimensions of integrating VR as the post-Zoom frontier in education and corporate training.

Clinical training has advanced over the years, and now with the adoption of technology we are able to accelerate human capability via precision simulation using virtual reality (VR) and as a result, advance pre-human competence in surgery and additional clinical environments to improve patient outcomes.

Haptic technology enables users to develop the knowledge of how it feels to perform a procedure correctly or incorrectly – helping to build muscle memory that is particularly important in advanced and precise surgical environments.

This session will discuss the value of Immersive VR and haptic technology environments and experiences that facilitate skills development and transfer, allowing medical device manufacturers to improve access and accelerate procedure and product adoption.

The session will cover the growing body of scientific evidence which demonstrates the value of VR vs. traditional training across various specialties. It will also provide real life case study examples of companies that implemented immersive VR training successfully and showed improvement in patient care while demonstrating significant ROI.
