Today we want to talk about Virtual Reality and its uses in training and education. There are many applications where Virtual Reality can be a key point. Not only helping training but also saving companies a lot of time and money.
We can also approach it as an easy and fun way to learn. There are many companies, foundations and associations that are joining this way of experiencing culture and offer us, from their websites, this type of visualization.
Virtual Reality applied to training
The virtual world has no limits and that is why we can apply it to all the areas we can think of.
An example of this is this way of applying VR. If you’re a medical student or just curious about the human anatomical structure, here’s a fun way to learn and explore our inner world. This type of project allows us, in addition to creating immersive experiences, to develop interactive lessons for faster learning.
Study without books
More and more schools and institutes are approaching education from the virtual world. Through various applications it is possible to take students anywhere. In this article you can understand the power that Virtual Reality has in the field of education. It’s a fun way to learn about history, anatomy, algebra, biology… without a lot of effort. This increases curiosity and the desire to learn from a very early age.
Health and safety training
There are many companies, especially engineering companies, that need to train their employees before handling certain machinery. This is usually done with a full-scale recreation of non-functional equipment. In this way operators can learn to operate this type of equipment without having to put themselves in danger or break the equipment.
With virtual reality we do not need a real model, just a virtual model that allows the same actions and VR glasses with which to immerse ourselves in the simulation. You can also program all the actions you want with their corresponding triggers.
Training for firefighters and rescue workers
There are professions that require a certain level of realism when it comes to training. Not only realism of environments, but in veracity of the situation. A fire, an air rescue or a complex landing are scenarios that are expensive to recreate in the physical world, but which can nevertheless be very truthful and cheap if we simulate them with Virtual Reality.
Like a first-person videogame with immersive technology: VR glasses and controls, we can reproduce with great realism situations that require quick reactions. These immersive experiences can be as complex as the simulation requires, but always with intuitive controls that are as close as possible to the real controls.
The world of Virtual Reality has no limits. In Simlab IT we bet on these applications and on the discovery of many more, always focused on the field of training in education or the health sector. Therefore, if you know of any other interesting application or have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to comment below, or contact us.
