Abstract
The aim of this study was to evaluate whether fire safety training using virtual reality (VR) is a viable method compared to more traditional methods of fire safety training. One part of the Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM) was built as a VR model. Fire safety information was implemented into the model based on a folder used for fire safety training. The study was conducted by training two groups of employees at LUSEM using two different methods. One group was trained using the VR model and one group was trained by reading a folder. Afterwards, the participants filled out two questionnaires. The first questionnaire was filled out immediately after the training and the second one was filled out two weeks... (More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate whether fire safety training using virtual reality (VR) is a viable method compared to more traditional methods of fire safety training. One part of the Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM) was built as a VR model. Fire safety information was implemented into the model based on a folder used for fire safety training. The study was conducted by training two groups of employees at LUSEM using two different methods. One group was trained using the VR model and one group was trained by reading a folder. Afterwards, the participants filled out two questionnaires. The first questionnaire was filled out immediately after the training and the second one was filled out two weeks afterwards. The questionnaires tested how much of the fire safety information the participants could remember and whether the fire safety training had motivated the participants to learn more on their own. The results from this study show that there is little difference in learning between the two methods. The group reading the folder seems to have remembered a bit more than the VR group. A possible explanation to this is that there are many competing impressions in the VR model which could have inhibited the learning. Both methods of training motivated the participants to learn more on their own. The reactions to the VR model were positive and it seems to have been a fun and interesting experience. (Less)
