Purpose of this study was to find out how practicing in virtual reality affects learning experience and could it enhance the transfer of training. Study was carried out in industrial setting in collaboration with KONE corporation. Effects of the simulation training were evaluated with a survey and theme interviews. Based on this case study it is safe to assume that practicing in virtual reality affects learning experience positively, and enhances the conditions of transfer of training to happen by for example providing a clear context for the task trained and enabling concrete “doing by hands” experience. Simulation training also seems to have a positive effect to trainee confidence which affects the transfer process by adding personal motivation.
