Using head tracking, trainers and facilitators are able to observe how often the user makes eye contact and where they look during the experiences.

“We are very excited to be premiering a number of our latest immersive products at Learning Technologies. The L&D sector is rapidly grasping the benefits of carefully considered immersive technologies for impactful digital learning. Whereas it used to be can be considered only suitable for hands-on, repetitive maintenance training, we’re delighting and surprising with our soft-skills use cases. We encourage LT19 attendees to come and experience for themselves”
