Together with Cornelsen eCademy and Currenta, we have developed a comprehensive blended learning scenario for chemical technicians. It consists of both theoretical e-learning segments and practical VR training. In total, it includes several hours of content that prepares the trainees for their real-life tasks.
We have been developing this application since 2020 in close and continuous collaboration with our partners Cornelsen eCademy/inside and Currenta.
Basic knowledge for working on chemical plants, processes and workflows.
Preparation VR experiments:
Explanation of the experimental procedure
Exercises for knowledge transfer from flow diagram to virtual chemical plant
Final test on work sequence
Quiz to explain the plant
Filling the stirring tank
Heating the stirring tank
Emptying the stirring tank
Changeover to steam heating
Distillation with reflux
Put plant to safety position
VR FOR TRAINING
With the blended learning approach in training, trainees have many advantages. Many trainees have great difficulty in the transition from theory to practice: the transfer of knowledge is difficult, and many trainees are insecure. In VR, they are now interactively prepared for the real plants: they get a better comprehension (e.g. through insights into the equipment) and can already gain practical experience without being afraid of possibly damaging something.
According to different studies, VR trainings are an affordable way for faster training with better results compared to convential trainings. The key results in a PWC study on VR trainings in soft skills:
