Why data & Analytics matter
When we work with clients, we're constantly advocating for virtual reality (VR) immersive experiences as core to job training and workforce development.
Scalability, safety, portability, engagement, retention of instruction… volumes of research support our conviction. Part of the value that VR delivers, especially when employers consider their training or on-boarding time requirements, is its innate ability to capture data. In most VR platforms, metrics could trace an array of human behavior, including activity, eye, or galvanic skin response (GSR) tracking and more. Those metric points tell a story, illuminating truths behind progress, pain points, and unseen obstacles.
We love this overview on VR metrics. Remember though: it's incumbent on the trainer to consider users’ backgrounds when evaluating in-experience metrics. A pre-experience assessment is an important part of the training, as every user is different and needs to be evaluated according to his or her own baseline.
