Our speaker Camille Donegan from Virtual Reality Ireland will be joined for a panel discussion by Jonny Cosgrove from meetingRoom and Paul Sweeney from DAQRI. The panel will be chaired by Alex GibsonTU Dublin and ARVR INNOVATE.

At this event, we use VR training case studies to explore how VR and AR can:

  • add immersion and gamification to corporate training programmes
  • provide increased engagement and knowledge retention for learning
  • implement scenario-based learning in simulated environments
  • ensure consistency of training across an organisation
  • develop soft skills including empathy and communication
  • scale experiential learning
  • provide new metrics for in-app data collection and reporting
  • generate return on investment with affordable solutions
