“I have been waiting for VR to transform the way we educate people for the last 15 years – finally Bodyswaps has produced what I have been waiting for. I can’t wait to see what the next 15 years will bring!”
“Bodyswaps has been helping SAGE to think through the possibilities of VR for the university market and to push us to think creatively about how to harness the emotional and experiential potential of VR”
"Bodyswaps' highly immersive experience is exactly what we need for positive behavioural change at scale by providing a safe space for practicing difficult conversations."
"Bodyswaps has a unique way of creating self-awareness amongst learners and letting them truly practise their skills in a realistic context. This perfectly fits with SNCF's vision of pioneering the use of immersive learning to bring positive change at a very large scale."
"Bodyswaps will help give the folks we work with a chance to have an emotional connection with the skills being taught. This connection will ultimately instill the behaviours and habits necessary to be successful in the workplace."
“I was really impressed by the range of skills it covered. I think anyone would benefit from this training - not just young people.”
"A perfect example of how you can create technology-enhanced learning experiences that add pedagogical value. This would be very difficult to simulate with traditional educational methods. Looking forward to seeing more cases like this.”
"Bodyswaps opened our eyes to what VR can bring to interview training. This is a game-changer.”
"Building empathy really is a great use of VR and using it to tackle such a sensitive subject (sexual misconduct in charities and NGOs) is highly impactful. Bodyswaps literally puts you in another person's shoes and allows you to see the impact your unconscious body language and tone can have in a sensitive conversation."
"Programme participants described it as a fun, motivating, and useful experience. It provided significant added value whilst challenging them to better prepare for their job interviews. They also found the CAR approach inspiring."
"Preparing for interviews can be challenging but VR provides an ideal 'safe space' to hone and perfect these essential skills. We’ll soon wonder how we trained for interviews before Bodyswaps."
