VR Raises the Bar on Corporate Training

(Source:CIO)Corporate training and development programs have long followed traditional paths, generally with some combination of written materials, videos, e-learning courses, in-classroom workshops, and hands-on observation of an instructor.

VR offers an immersive and potentially more compelling platform for learning than traditional classroom lectures, online courseware, or dated videos, regardless of whether the topic is sales pitching, customer service, or leadership coaching.
