Training with VR headsets, smartphones or traditional materials?
Our latest study, just published in the IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, compares the effectiveness of the same training content delivered through immersive VR (headset), non-immersive VR (smartphone), and traditional printed pictorials. Both VR content delivery methods produced greater knowledge gain, 2-weeks retention as well as trainee's confidence than traditional printed pictorials. Moreover, immersive VR produced more engagement than the other two methods.
