All this with the development of interactive virtual campuses and collaborative projects that, in an active and personalized way, transfer the students to different 3D worlds dedicated to nature, history, science, etc. Technological solutions that also provide greater support to teachers in the academic monitoring of their students by offering a immediate feedback and a greater control on the contents. An example of this type of virtual training program, especially dedicated to children, is Learning to undertake.

Where training courses borrow from the most characteristic aspects of the video games so that workers can explore, test and learn at their own pace within the virtual simulations, while interacting with all of the 3D models of the different machines and among themselves through their own avatars. Interactive training programs that are always available and can be accessed from different devices and browsers. In this way, the training is customized thanks to the unique combination of technology and entertainment, recreating all kinds of professional training processes. Such as the presentation through 3D models of the latest machinery of the industrial group. Tapewormsavailable at any time on its own internal website.

3. Marketing and advertising applications

Nowadays, simply advertising the product or service is not enough to convince the target audience. Customers no longer look only at the characteristics of the products/services, but also at the values that the company conveys, its level of expertise and, above all, its position as an expert in the sector that can provide them with unique knowledge on the subject. Thus, training is becoming one of the most important more effective and differentiating marketing strategieswhere the brand launches a series of learning sessions around the company and products that enrich the relationship with customers and brand positioning. These trainings can be carried out in person with a small group (with a high cost in the organization and preparation of the trainings) or in your company. large-scale digital version, taking advantage of the latest advances in immersive technologies with the development of a own virtual campus. Campus where the content is always available and the company knows at the moment all the movements of customers within the space. At the same time facilitating the interaction, participation y gamification of the actions of all users. An example of Virtual Training integrated into a marketing campaign can be found in the gamified experience of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar in the virtual universe. Where visitors, in addition to knowing all the facilities, discover through quizzes y mini-games the values of the academy and the contents of the classroom courses.

4. Applications in the tourism and cultural sector

Undoubtedly, one of the main objectives of museums is the dissemination of knowledge about history, science and art. An educational work that benefits from the development of experiences of Virtual Trainingwhere the visitor actively participates in his or her own knowledge gathering. Virtual Training also offers the possibility of creating virtual rooms where people from all over the world can enter and learn all the details of the exhibition.

5. Applications in the sector health sector

If there is a sector where the training and the practical experience are important factors for good job performance in the health sector. The Virtual Training allow you to deepen key skills within the medical world with the development of 3D simulations y role-plays where healthcare professionals can familiarize themselves with all the processes before carrying them out in the real world. In addition, these web spaces can be set up as large virtual campuses, accessible from anywhere on the planet, to study in detail from diseases and the human body to the surgical equipment of the hospital center thanks to the development of interactive 3D models. Patients also benefit from the development of these virtual trainings, where healthcare professionals are able to prepare them and their families for the situations they will face in life outside the healthcare center. Making the adaptation process much more naturalThis gives patients confidence, as they are already familiar with this new situation.
