VR-based training is a hot topic but VR training sometimes feels like all lights and no action. The secret sauce in any virtual reality experience is simple: immersion. In this session, you will learn how to apply VR game design best practices to VR training to elevate VR training to a new level, creating an immersive event that engages learners and enables deep learning to take place. You will also learn simple details to focus on that will convince your learner that they are in the environment that you created for them, supporting complete immersion for your learners.
In this session, you will learn about VR gaming design best practices and we will outline trends in VR gaming design and how they can be applied to VR training development. We will explore parallels between VR gaming and VR training and discuss how these parallels can be exploited to improve VR training learner experiences. We will also look at differences between the two genres and how both industries can benefit from learning from each other. Finally, we will discuss how we can convince the learner to invest their most valuable commodity into VR training: time. New skills and ideas can be taught and applied in an immersive VR environment that engages the learner and inspires them to keep coming back to practice and perfect what they are learning in a believable environment.
In this session, you will learn:
Oculus Quest, scripting/storyboarding tools (i.e. Twine), Unity Game Engine
