Talespin: Using immersive technology for skills development

We take a look at how Talespin is bringing technology to the future workforce, to make it more collaborative, inclusive, and productive

Since 2015, Talespin has developed a platform to power the creation and distribution of immersive learning experiences.

This includes its product CoPilot Designer, an authoring tool that puts the power of immersive content creation in the hands of learning and instructional designers.

Talespin uses its platform to support an ecosystem of learning content creators, leading learning platforms, XR hardware partners, and enterprise customers. The technology uses 3D virtual humans and environments to help people practice conversational skills and simulate jobs with real-time feedback and skills analytics.

The company is trusted by organisations such as Accenture, AIA Hong Kong & Macau, Farmers Insurance, JFF, and 10 of the largest employers in the Fortune 500.

Using technology to help people reskill

The World Economic Forum projects that by 2030, over one billion workers will have needed to reskill, as the core capabilities required for work across industries change. This makes it vital that companies implement engaging training programs to equip their workforces with these new skills.

Immersive learning, built on Extended Reality (XR) technologies, offers opportunities for employees to participate in “hands-on” learning, and has been shown to lead to greater learning retention

Earlier this year, Accenture made a strategic investment, through Accenture Ventures, in Talespin

Tom Lounibos, managing director of Accenture Ventures, said, “Over 90% of executives who responded to a recent Accenture survey believe that their existing training methods need to be more effective and efficient. Yet conventional approaches to training, such as instructor-led classes or online video series, are not always effective; in fact, research shows that learners forget 70% of this type of content within 24 hours and nearly 90 percent in a month. The need for engaging, immersive learning is clear, and we believe that Talespin is well-positioned to address this challenge.”
