Immersive learning begins when the learner feels emotionally connected to the subject matter. Until then, they are merely a passive observer, witnessing a presentation of information. 

Whether you choose to drive emotional investment through a virtual reality solution, an educational game or an interactive video, it's unlikely you will achieve ultimate employee engagement without providing context.

Take compliance training, for example. Getting the workforce clued up on the latest legislation is a necessity, but it's unlikely the information will be properly retained if the employee can't see the relevance to their day-to-day activities. And remember, powerful learning content doesn't only highlight the relevance of the information, it communicates the benefit of understanding the information.
