VR to advance Philippine learning experience

Tech start-up I AM Cardboard Philippines (IAC PH) is setting a new trend in classrooms, museums and training programs where one gets immersed in an environment that is similar to the real world, or in some cases, can even be fantastical.

The company finds that virtual reality (VR) has a lot of potential in education, museum and training for human resources, according to a recent report.

The closest one can get to learning is by doing it in VR. The other way people retain information is through connecting with the content, which VR has the edge in because it can bridge the psychic distance gap.

The person is not reading or watching as an outsider. Instead, the person is actually doing it. VR serves as the link between knowledge and experience.

The majority of the start-ups business is with the corporate sector, usually with well-known brands.

Some of the company’s partners have deployed VR to thousands of students and this is just the start of brighter things to come as technology will mature and become more common in the next couple of years.

In order to balance traditional learning and VR, the company goes through the standard training in order to understand the needs of a client.

Afterwards, they work with the instructors to pinpoint the key areas where VR can massively improve on their existing modules.

It can be as simple as a 360 degree still image of what an ideal store setup is so that employees can have a clear immersive idea.

The company can even go a notch higher by creating a scenario where the trainees are placed in the position of a client in order to showcase pain points and build empathy with client problems.

VR can easily and affordable integrate with existing training processes.

The company has recently launched another VR diorama, in partnership with the Ayala Museum, titled “Emergence of the Filipino Nation” that features iconic Philippine heroes Emilio Aguinaldo and Andres Bonifacio in a 10-minute, fully immersive 360 degree virtual-reality experience.

Retelling the Philippine history with the use of the innovative approach of virtual reality makes the museum experience more immersive and engaging.

Using VR as a tool to innovate the museum experience can entice the younger generation of Filipinos to learn more about the country’s history.

Telling a story using high-quality 360 degree video and virtual-reality technology revolutionises the interaction between the museum visitor and the content.

With this innovation, the audience are able to view history from a first-person perspective, making them feel that they have actually travelled to the past.
