Immersion leads to a more focused learning experience. How do you retrofit course curriculums, and allow integration with traditional learning techniques?
The Waterford and Wexford Education Training Board (WWETB) is the largest educational provider in the Southeast of Ireland . It provides a comprehensive range of services through over 570 courses.When a building has a high energy rating, it performs with a minimal amount of input. This sustainable methodology in turn helps save resources for the next generation. The WWETB wanted to compliment their existing retrofit training programme with Virtual Reality. They needed a cutting edge simulator to onboard their students.
Emagine collaborated with course curriculum experts. We then armed ourselves with an intimate knowledge of the learning goals.Together, we created a space to practice techniques required for a retrofit. In 3D, we imparted vital skills for the Construction Industry's future workers.
Following this approach, we immersed the students in their own Virtual environment. The students repeated our Virtual Reality simulation without physical models or expensive waste.
Learning outcomes now come from repeatable, real-time choices. With immediate feeback, users gain a deeper understanding of the learning material. This leads to a higher level of confidence and application of skills in the real world.
