VR for Medical training education & cost analysis details that will impress your finance manager
Situational awareness in Medicine is the ability to know “what to do when”, and to “calmly think on one’s feet” in a life or death situation that could get out of control.
There are more than one excellent use cases for VR & AR, the topmost is in training medical students & practitioners in situational awareness in the ER.
By now it is well known that- training with physical simulation is expensive as it consumes both time and space . Also it is only available in larger centers and needs to be led by faculty & actors. In short it cannot be scaled to deliver flexible training when needed by clinicians.
But then, there is the question of cost & ROI. We need proof that Virtual reality simulation is cost effective than physical training. This article gives us a detailed breakdown of the cost of using an medical education immersive system that will be kosher with your finance guys too.

AR/VR & the future of teacher training & development
Virtualization is the future & possible could be a theme for the next decade. One of the most neglected by technology are those who work in the business of empathy- teachers & educators. But things are changing for educators & AR/VR training solutions for educators is the future.
Virtual Clone for better public speaking
Those of you who have received training in public speaking will remember using video recording to catch your mistakes in diction or body language. With VR based clones you get a massive step up- from watching a video to being in the same space as your clone.
Ed-Tech & the use of immersive tech in India
Some believe that the next phase of growth will come from increased use of immersion based learning to improve the learn from home situation which by now we know isn't going away any soon.
It sure can be done but can it be done at scale & at acceptable cost is a question that will need answers. Sitting for hours in-front of a monitor is sedentary. With a well designed immersive curriculum a student can be kept physically active- which means even if they stand on their feet more than they have to sit will be an huge health benefit.
