The SIMmersion Difference
Our solutions take e-learning to the next level of realism skills development.
No Other Training Delivers as Much
Our systems incorporate:
- Knowledge base of textbooks and classrooms
- Play-anywhere accessibility of traditional e-learning and branching logic simulations
- Skill building and constructive feedback of professional role-plays or mentoring
- Realism and continuous variety of on-the-job learning, without any of the risks
Learning that Empowers Students
Textbooks, e-learning systems, and classroom lectures present content in a rigid structure, and can make it difficult for students to focus on the knowledge they consider relevant. Our systems let players navigate freely through educational materials to zero in on what matters most to them. Our convenient training portal lets players access our systems online whenever and wherever they want. This flexible approach to learning puts students in control of their own education.
Continuously Variable Training Develops Skills
Other simulations use branching logic, where every decision only has one possible result. Because outcomes are predictable, branching conversations turn into multiple-choice tests with low realism, low replay value, and low generalizability to real-world conversation skills. Our systems feature lifelike characters, meaningful player choices and all the unpredictable nuances of real conversation, giving them high realism, high replay value, and significant generalizability to real scenarios. Unlike one-off professional role-plays, players can repeat our systems as much as they like for continuous skill-building; and unlike on-the-job learning, players can experiment and make mistakes in a safe virtual environment.
Practice with Feedback Anytime, Anywhere
Professional role-players are effective at capturing the nuances of important conversations, and good mentors can provide personalized coaching and feedback. But role-plays and coaching sessions are expensive, isolated events subject to scheduling constraints. We provide the same realistic skill-building experience and immediate granular feedback players need to build skills quickly. Our online portal is easy to access on-demand for repeat practice or refresher training without any new costs or hassles.
Learning on the job can be risky, so branching logic simulations often use virtual environments and 3D avatars to mimic real-life scenarios. But when it comes to conversations, real people manifest so many nuances in expression, tone of voice and nonverbal behaviors that even sophisticated avatars often fall short. Our characters are portrayed in video by professional actors to make the interactions as realistic as possible. These authentic training conversations are more effective at building skills that generalize to real-life success.
