Pioneering the future of work with spatial learning

Nonprofit page hero

Transformational shifts in where, what, how and who gets work done have changed how organizations hire, train and evaluate talent. And change isn't slowing up any time soon.

World Economic Forum research predicts that by 2027, change will disrupt almost half (44%) of workers' core skills. In their The Future of Jobs Report 2023, they expect six in ten workers will require skills training before 2027, but only half currently have access to adequate training opportunities. With so much change coming, what can you and your organization do to build new skills and competencies across your workforce without sacrificing the employee experience while setting your people up to be successful today and in the future? 

For two decades, Cornerstone has been the learning and talent development leader and a partner to organizations all over the world. Now, we're building on our legacy of delivering engaging and personalized learning experiences with an investment in spatial computing, extended reality and generative AI to empower organizations to build future-ready workforces through truly immersive experiences.

With the recent acquisition of Talespin's immersive content, AI-powered content authoring and analytics capabilities, deep domain expertise across spatial technology, learning, and content. Cornerstone now offers integrated learning solutions that deliver the right content to the right people at the right time (and now) with the right modality.

The power of spatial learning for adapting to change

Spatial learning is a category of learning that bridges the divide between the physical and digital worlds to simulate conversations and processes as well as mimic actions. With spatial learning, employees can learn about company culture, how to perform in their role, soft skills and even leadership skills in the flow of work.

Spatial learning in extended reality (XR) has been shown to have positive impacts on learners. And through Cornerstone, you can expand how you use spatial learning at scale, no matter your industry. It enables organizations to deliver training that is relevant to their learners and contextual to their organization.

Through spatial learning in XR, your people can build the competencies they need for today or will need in the future so your organization can fill succession plans and build workforce planning strategies. Where possible, employees no longer need to wait for onsite training to acquire skills. They can participate in simulated conversations or scenarios that they can apply on the job immediately.

People who benefit from spatial learning are a segment of learners who don't often get a lot of focused practice or guidance. That's where extended reality comes in.

Extended reality goes beyond the expected

To understand extended reality and its benefits to your people and organization, you need to know the differences between VR, AR, MR and XR.

  • VR (Virtual Reality) – Fully immersive experiences set in entirely digital environments
  • AR (Augmented Reality) – Half-and-half experiences where digital overlays float over a view of the physical world
  • MR (Mixed Reality) – Half-and-half experiences where overlayed digital objects can interact with the physical world
  • XR (Extended Reality) – A catch-all term that collectively refers to technology that mixes VR, AR and MR

Extended reality is for more experiential, spatial learners, like when manufacturers need to train their people on new tools but can't afford to slow down production. The spatial learning in XR courses that are now in Cornerstone combines the benefits of physical and virtual training. Through these XR courses (or the ones you build with AI-powered creation tools), you can connect with your spatial learners in ways that regular virtual training can't, improving engagement and retention.

The use cases and opportunities for accelerated learning now at your fingertips are endless and apply to nearly every industry. For example, healthcare organizations can speed time-to-floor for critical nursing and medical support staff, manufacturers can ramp up or reskill their people without impacting production outcomes and customer service representatives can practice emotionally realistic conversations to increase their confidence.
