Intelligent immersive learning is a paradigm shift that is already underway in higher education and professional education. However, the legacy focus of designing and implementing learning products for institutional needs, practices, and structures is outdated beyond revision or adaption and is unsuitable for immersive learning. A fundamental shift in focus is required, with the learner’s experience truly at the core and the learner’s personalized instructional needs as the overarching guiding framework.
Effective skills training has been time and place bound with expensive facilities, with corresponding limitations in access and low throughput. Prior to the emergence of affordable VR, existing online training with traditional flat media was not comparable to traditional hands-on training in learning outcomes performance. Additionally, both physical training and computer simulations suffer from a rapid diminution of learned skills, requiring frequent retraining without achieving any economies of scale.
Immersive learning can now provide the online learner with "anytime-anywhere" access to skills training that is more effective and efficient than any previous approach.
“Research validates that students acquire skills faster, with greater accuracy, and retain skills longer through immersive learning experiences”
