What is the Metaverse? Can it really help solve our biggest L&D challenges, or is it just the latest buzzword?

In this interactive session, Make Real will look at examples of how the metaverse is being used today and consider how this can be applied to our most pressing learning needs. They’ll explore how you can use the metaverse to reconnect and collaborate with colleagues across different locations, in order to bring people back together again. They’ll also focus in on how it can give a boost certain types of training, such as leadership and onboarding.

In this session, we will explore…

  • Definitions of the metaverse and whether it really exists today.
  • How companies are currently using elements of the metaverse in their training.
  • How the metaverse might boost certain areas of training in the future.
  • What you could be doing to take your first practical steps into the metaverse.
