So you know you want to incorporate virtual reality into your training. Everybody wants to bring in the new kid and have virtual reality (VR) on their team because the tech is innovative and memorable. VR training experiences have a proven higher retention rate, with retention gains reaching 75% in comparison to standard video, eLearning, or textbook training.

This guide is designed to help you set realistic expectations for the VR production process, know what to look for in a great VR development partner, and understand the process of production planning for your next VR training module.
