Virtual reality learning (V-Learning) is just now entering the business education and training arena. Vertical Learning is pleased to offer premier business education and training using this new virtual reality technology. V-Learning takes the technology used in online games and simulators and uses it to conduct classes in a virtual reality world. Our free on-line orientation allows you to experience this virtual reality world where students learn business by doing business.

 

Each course is written by a team of leaders. Screenwriters then transform the course material into a virtual reality learning experience. Students will learn business by doing business in a virtual reality company. They enter each course as an intern in the department that most closely matches the course focus. By integrating course material with corporate experience, V-Learning bridges the gap between the classroom and the corporate world.

 

Traditional online education is often simply an electronic version of an old-fashioned correspondence course and less effective than classroom lectures. However, the flexible schedule and portability of online courses make them ideal for anyone needing to work, travel, or take care of their family while pursuing their education. V-Learning combines the best of both worlds. V-Learning offers students the flexibility and portability of online learning while receiving high quality business education and training.
