Companies using a learning management system for their online training may consider integrating a virtual world. Virtual worlds allow students to carry out tasks that could be difficult or impossible in the real world, due to restrictions or circumstances including personal, financial, locational or schedule constraints.
Just as training directors can use a learning management system to upload presentation videos and instructional demos, students can enter a virtual world to access the same material. But virtual worlds also offer optimal student engagement in the learning system. Learners create an avatar, or a virtual world presence, to interact with fellow trainees and training directors.
When efficiently implemented and coordinated, a virtual world allows learners to get involved in the content to a degree that a traditional learning management system course doesn’t quite achieve.
