What happens when Cyber Security experts and cognitive science researchers team with next-generation virtual reality developers? COURSE. COURSE combines these principles to provide state-of-the-art immersion training in cybersecurity theory and practical technique. The result is modular, mobile, and effective training that increases retention by 500% over traditional classroom instruction.
The 9 Tenets of
Break up complex processes into smaller pieces and space them out
If possible, try to make the lessons evoke some measure of fear, anger or excitement.
Physically knowing how to perform a task.
The participation of the learner in the lesson.
The degree to which the VR environment matches the field.
Learners want to know why this information is important. Tell them early on to engage your audience.
Use both visuals and sound in conjunction to maximize applied understanding
Take advantage of existing knowledge by connecting complex topics to well understood ones
COURSE training theory is based on the findings of The Cognitive Learning Framework (CLF). The CLF maximizes the training effectiveness of the COURSE program. Responsive learning paths are unique to each trainee. These progressive paths adjust the learning environment based on performance, offering unique content delivery variants as needed to give trainees new perspectives and increase retention, performance speed, and performance accuracy.
SIXGEN, Inc. are the innovators behind Cognitive Objectives Utilizing Reality-based Simulation Engine (COURSE). The COURSE Virtual Reality Training platform provides an affordable entry to simulation-based instruction by using video game content modules that operate on easily attainable hardware. Backed by the Cognitive Learning Framework study by Resilient Cognitive Solutions, COURSE VR training is proven to increase retention of information. This game-based solution can be used to train individuals or used in a shared environment, providing military, tactical teams, machinery manufacturers, and other organizations with task-based training functionality beneficial in field practices. Our Expert Eye TM process allows for origination of relevant content backed by subject matter expertise as well as seamless integration of existing training materials and documentation. This promotes the relevance of content and reduces iterations. The result is a VR-ready immersion COURSE with multi-tenet features to appeal to the varied learning needs of all trainees. Optional VR means that learners can choose the level of immersion that works best for them. Our innovative Virtual Reality (VR) training technology enables:
