Using Extended Reality or XR technology is a growing trend in corporate training. Want to know why?
This article commences our blog series about using XR in a variety of learning contexts.

For those new to the topic, Extended Reality is an umbrella term that brings together Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR).

Energy, automotive, manufacturing, construction and retail sectors are some of the early adopters of XR facilitated training, but other industries are fast catching up.

Whilst XR facilitated training presents valuable opportunities in sectors that deal with high-risk or particularly complex products, machinery or processes, using immersive training can yield proven and significant benefits to any sector where active, ongoing learning and first-hand ‘learning through experience’ are required.

Below are some of the benefits XR technology can have over traditional classroom or online training methods.

1. Increased learning effectiveness & retention

Due to its immersive nature, XR based training tools can engage and provide learners a first-hand experience, with the potential to increase learning effectiveness by up to 75% compared to other training methods. Immersion based training can also be more fun and memorable than traditional teaching methods – leading to better retention.

2. Reduced training costs

XR facilitated learning can help cut corporate training costs. Instead of paying for staff and faculty travel to training centres or remote real-life operational sites, XR-based training can take place at local offices and facilities, or even remotely from home. Further costs can be cut in sectors where training involves expensive materials and equipment, with XR replacing the need for physical materials and reducing risk on equipment.

3. Overcoming distance

Incorporating immersion is particularly well-suited to providing simulations of e.g. difficult-to-access locations. With the help of XR, companies can create remote guided tours and facilitate life-like remote collaboration. XR based training can also help companies access the best skills and expertise from around the world, without the cost of employee or expert travel.

4. Learning through mistakes

XR can facilitate valuable learning through mistakes, which in real life could be dangerous, detrimental to business, or even fatal. High-risk industries are not the only ones to benefit from this potential; the use of XR can be equally useful in a range of customer service and sales training settings, where mistakes in real-life could lead to loss of business.

5. Tracking & analytics

Incorporating XR tools into training can help monitor and track training progress, providing feedback to management, training staff and learners. XR can capture a wide range of data about learner behaviour and responses, and produce reports on progress.
