Four ways to create learning that people will love, using games and immersive technologies

We’re all demanding more from digital learning; users want interesting, enjoyable experiences that meet their high expectations of technology and personal development, while businesses want effective, measurable solutions, aligned to their key priorities.

How do we balance the needs of the individual and those of the organisation to create learning that everyone loves?

In this webinar, we’ll look at four examples where digital games and immersive technologies, like VR and 360° video, are not only ‘wowing’ audiences but achieving real business impact. You’ll see how companies, including Tetra Pak, Royal Mail and Yum! Brands (the company behind KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell), are addressing key challenges through immersive experience and game play.

By the end of the session, you’ll have a greater understanding of how these technologies can be used to engage and motivate people. You’ll leave equipped with practical tips for incorporating games and immersive technologies into learning at your own organisation.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to: 

  • Recognise different game types and their practical applications within corporate learning
  • Identify use cases for VR and 360° video and how to mix technologies for greatest impact
  • Align games and immersive technologies to business goals
