VR is such greenfield, yet massive opportunity for our customer base that it takes support from tech leaders like Dell to help companies take advantage of this game-changing technology.
Learning new skills is difficult. I’m reminded of this every day with my 6 year old son Nolan; he’s my home R&D learning center. Even though kids, in comparison to adults, are learning machines, they still need a ton of guidance and encouragement (and of course the occasional bribe or threat).
Our methods of teaching have been constantly evolving. A common practice we probably experience today is sitting at rows of tables, receiving information from an instructor (could be a teacher, could be a solar instructor). Good trainers try to include hands-on activity to break up the lectures, but usually time is short, equipment is scarce, and all you get is a taste of what it’s really about.
