Transform Training with Virtual and Augmented Reality


Lucid Dream helps Learning and Development professionals at leading Fortune 1000 and middle market companies upskill employees faster and boost knowledge retention using Virtual and Augmented Reality. We blend instructional design, software development, behavioral analytics, and consultative support to help our client partners launch scalable VR/AR training programs that move beyond traditional e-learning and role-plays to shift behaviors, imprint skills, and build empathy.

We will take a deep dive into ways to leverage these new training tools, with a heavy focus on hands-on demos, to help you understand the new possibilities, current limitations, and ideal usages for each of the latest VR/AR training modalities. You will see examples and success metrics from other companies using the technology to upskill technical staff, improve workplace safety, develop leaders, cultivate soft skills, and more.

And of course, we will share simple first steps for integrating scenario-based VR/AR training, simulation, and performance assessments within existing classroom and remote curriculums.
