Immersive environments and virtual worlds are powerful places in which to learn. But they have previously needed high skill levels in order to build the learning experiences. Since 2008 Daden have been working with clients across the world, using our award winning PIVOTE immersive learning authoring tool to create learning experiences such as training paramedics and nurses, emergency planning simulations and teaching students about knife crime, and letting subject matter experts directly edit and even build the experiences.
Building on the success of our PIVOTE system, we have now created a second generation immersive learning tool called OOPAL. OOPAL addresses the issues educators and trainers faced previously of not having the technical knowledge to create the “sets” nor manage the 3D environment. It enables lecturers and educators to create and edit the scenarios and simulations (including the sets) entirely on the web. Only when they are ready to “push the button”, do they need to enter the 3D environment to deploy the exercise. With OOPAL, educators – and even students – can create and maintain worth-while learning experiences without the need to become virtual world experts.
