Virtual Reality for Interactive Training: an
Industrial Practitioner’s Viewpoint

by Robert Stone

This article explores the uses of virtual reality in
training situations.


The purpose of this article was to review some of the
human performance results to emerge from the
academic and commercial application of VR
technologies.

Stone begins by drawing attention to a study done by Fletcher (1996) in which
he showed that the use of “interactive multimedia instruction” resulted in
impressive performance figures, which suggest an improvement in
attainment from the 50th to 75th percentile.


In fact, other studies show that when compared to conventional delivery
techniques, computer
-
based instruction is associated with a reduction of
about 30% in the time required to achieve course objectives.


In more recent studies of VR simulators where trainees are learning to
maintain and repair equipment using simulated equipment compared to
actual equipment, performance improvements from the 50th to 66th
percentile were reported.
