Continuous Access to Simulations

VR allows trainees to access simulations whenever needed, providing a powerful and convenient learning tool. Unlike traditional in-person simulations, which can be time-consuming and limited to a few sessions per year, VR simulations are always available. This constant accessibility means trainees can engage in high-quality training more frequently without setup or supervision.

Open-World VR Simulations

With Storyflow, you can design simulations that let trainees interact naturally within their environment. This approach deviates from predetermined action sequences, allowing trainees to take any action at any time. Such "open-world" freedom helps assess how well-prepared trainees are for real-world tasks by letting them navigate and respond to scenarios independently.

Adaptive Learner Levels

As trainees gain experience and improve their skills, their training needs evolve. Storyflow accommodates this by offering modules with varying levels of support. New employees can start with a highly guided "teaching" mode and gradually progress to more challenging levels, culminating in a "test" mode with no hints. This scaffolded learning approach boosts trainees' confidence and readiness for their roles.

Randomized Outcomes

Storyflow also supports training modules with randomized outcomes, ideal for scenarios with multiple possible results. This feature keeps the training dynamic and engaging, ensuring trainees remain alert and adaptable.

Increased Training Access

VR simulations allow for more frequent and efficient training compared to live simulations. With a few VR headsets in a break or training room, trainees can complete modules in less than half an hour. Studies have shown that 25 minutes of VR training can be as effective as three hours of one-on-one or onsite training, significantly enhancing training efficiency. Implementing VR simulations in training programs offers numerous benefits, including continuous access, adaptive learning levels, and engaging, randomized scenarios. By leveraging VR technology, organizations can enhance the effectiveness and frequency of their training, ultimately leading to better-prepared and more confident employees.
