VR & AR for
immersive learning.

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) are powerful training tools. Immersive learning experiences empower behaviour, grow knowledge, and develop empathy – often with greater efficacy than other training methods.

At Sponge, we can help create realistic and meaningful VR scenarios. As the technology becomes more familiar, it’s vital for businesses to consider new modes of learning that can offer a greater impact than other approaches.

VR for more
effective learning.

VR in particular has been shown to be more enjoyable and easier to concentrate on when compared with learning games and written documents.

In a pilot study we undertook, participants reported significantly greater learning satisfaction with VR compared to other learning methods. Our study revealed that 90% of participants said they would feel valued if their employer offered VR, and 100% of participants said they would feel like they worked for an innovative organisation if they received VR training. Clear evidence that immersive learning technologies and methods can be impressive ways to attract and retain talent.

When to use
VR and AR.

Do your people operate in a REDI – Risky, Expensive, Dangerous or Inaccessible – environment? Oli rigs, energy plants, manufacturing, working at heights or with dangerous materials, all fall into this category.

If your people learn best by doing but it’s unsafe for them to enter the real environment without a degree of competence and capability, bespoke VR learning is a great solution. We can help create realistic and meaningful VR scenarios to help people practice staying safe with no risk to themselves or the business.

How do you currently bring your global locations to life for employees working from home around the world?

We can develop bespoke VR interactions to capture your locations around the globe, allowing new starters to feel connected in large organisations, during the onboarding process and beyond.

Bespoke AR for elearning is uniquely placed to provide information to people when they need it, without disrupting the workflow. By augmenting instructions, visuals and guidance into the existing environment, people can access what they need immediately as a performance support tool.
