Learning studies indicate that we retain half of what we see and hear, but 90% of what we practice by doing. Virtual training allows students to benefits from a practice by doing approach using interactive 3D graphics to simulate equipment and processes. Interactive training keeps students engaged in the learning process and offers a number of tangible benefits including improved comprehension, accelerated learning and anytime anywhere training.
Digimation’s virtual training products are unmatched in their visual fidelity and interactivity. The result is an experience so compelling, as students practice on the computer, they begin to understand the mechanics behind the equipment, vehicles and weapons in a way other learning methods simply can’t match.
VIRTUAL TRAINING BENEFITS
Computer-based interactive training is a powerful tool for teaching students to perform tasks which might otherwise be too expensive or dangerous to duplicate in the real world. Recent advances in computer hardware and software now make it practical and affordable to use this same technology to teach virtually anything.
Digimation trainers represent the visual state-of-the-art. Individual parts are detailed; including labels and wear. Mechanical assemblies are accurate in form as well so that part interaction is correct. This helps create a more compelling learning experience that encourages student participation and ensures that when a student sees the actual part in the field, it’s instantly recognizable.
INFORM, INSTRUCT AND INSPIRE
Digimation virtual trainers use a system of exploration, observation, and practice to teach equipment installation, operation, maintenance, and repair.
Become familiar with equipment in the exploration module by interacting with assemblies and animations that demonstrate functionality. Individual parts can be hidden or shown in x-ray mode; allowing equipment to be viewed in a way impossible to match in the real world, leading to increased understanding.
Interactive animation in the learning module allow students to review and learn procedures by seeing them broken down into easy to understand steps. Animations can be paused, sped up, and slowed down, allowing students to learn at their own pace.
The practice module allows students to repeat procedures demonstrated in the learning module. Students can remove and replace parts on the equipment in real time and if a mistake is made; automated feedback will guide him to the correct path.
