  • Skill decay after periods of skill disuse is well known and has substantial implications when relatively long periods of time separate training from the application of learned skills. We conducted a small study that examined the differential effects of virtual reality versus conventional computer-based media on skill retention. The results reported are preliminary, but were consistent with earlier research that reports that VR may not be superior to conventional electronic media for training… CONTINUE READING
