Tips To Vet VR Training Vendors

1. Choose An Outsourcing Partner In Your Niche

Every online training vendor has their specialties but they also cater to certain niches. While some are experienced in retail training, others excel in the medical sector. Thus, they’re prepared to handle the challenges and unique L&D requirements that come with the territory. If you’re unsure about their level of niche expertise, visit their site and read online reviews. Past clients are another great way to evaluate their niche know-how. For instance, their landing page might cite several companies in your sector, along with glowing testimonials.

2. Evaluate Different Pricing Options

Some eLearning vendors work on a milestone basis, while others request a percentage up front and the rest on the completion of the project. There’s also the matter of what’s included in the package. Do they offer revisions or client support? Does the price include deployment and hosting? Evaluate the various pricing options that are available and compare them to your budget. Yet another cost consideration is future online training content, which I cover in the next item on the list.

3. Assess Their List Of Online Training Solutions

You may not need to expand your microlearning online training library today, but what about the next quarter? It’s best to find a Mixed Reality training company that offers a broad range of solutions. But they should also limit their menu to avoid stretching themselves too thin. Identify which online training solutions you need in the following year then look for eLearning vendors who meet the requirements. Do they also specialize in gamification? What about social learning integration? Of course, you can always endure another round of eLearning vendor vetting if you prefer.

4. Hire Them For A Sample Project

There may still be doubts about whether the eLearning vendor is best for your bottom line, even after reading reviews. This is where sample projects enter the picture. They give you the opportunity to gauge the quality of work for yourself and evaluate the eLearning vendor’s work practices. Do they talk you through every step of the process or leave you in the dark about important updates or changes? How long does it take them to reply to your emails? Are they able to use your existing online training resources to reduce costs? Do they know how to use the latest immersive learning tech to achieve the desired outcomes? Do they welcome your input?

5. Set Up A Project Scope Meeting

There should actually be two separate meetings if you’re opting for the sample project. One before the project to clarify your expectations of the project scope. Then another one to recap the online training experience and exchange eLearning feedback. This also helps work out any issues regarding communication, online training objectives, and revision sessions. For instance, your team felt left out of the process during the sample project. How can you improve collaboration and build a long-term relationship with the eLearning vendor? Are there any conflicts between their workflow and yours? These are all concerns to address early on before you move onto the actual VR or AR training development.
