Immersive Training with View360 Global™

By July 21, 2019view360global

View360 Global™ is an easy to use, versatile, stable, multi-lingual training platform. It is used as a modern-day blended learning approach to education.

View360 Global™ transposes the linear paper feed case study principle. Providing an immersive learning environment in which participants learn and are challenged through media-driven exercises. These can be based through any scenario: whether testing policy, resilience, or working through an investigative case study. Training can take place over a period of hours or days.

The principle is based on small groups of learners/participants (within a larger group environment) using allocated laptops, on which they are fed various types of media (includes movies, audio files, JPEGS or any picture files and PDFs of any document) through a structured and time-critical process.

Participates are required to respond to a challenge or task during which time they are required to evidence critical thinking processes through the recording of decisions and rationale. The recordings are attributable to individuals and therefore, can be used for formal educational assessment processes. We capture the whole process for audit, analysis, debriefing and management reporting purposes in MS Word document format, and this facility will also translate responses into English from any one of 90 languages.

The facilitators can monitor all of the groups, at any time, through an input on a separate device. During the training, facilitators can observe and use the time to identify gaps in knowledge in realtime during the live sessions. Relevant points are debriefed in plenary at the end of the sessions. This, therefore, reduces the time taken when delivering traditional didactic presentations where knowledge is often repeated, or time prohibits or restricts learning and comprehensive debriefing.

The proven benefits are:

• Creates a safe environment in which errors can be made, and learning is remembered (sustainability).
• Simulation of a critical incident or investigation process based on the experience of an organisation makes it meaningful and relevant to the participants. Creates an immediate ‘buy-in’.
• Decisions are fully recorded, tracked and audited, which allows all participants to contribute and to share experiences that might not be drawn in traditional methods.
• Each participant is fully engaged throughout the exercise; they assume identical roles and responsibilities which would be undertaken in a real-life incident.
• The use of experts with specialist knowledge and expertise acting as facilitators provide a wide spectrum of learning and analysis.
• Pre-/de-brief major or complex investigations and work through investigative decision-making and actions;
• Examine and ‘stress-test’ existing policies and procedures;
• Create or enhance policies and procedures;
• Enhance decision-making and risk management;
• Increase learning opportunity through more effective use of training time representing increased value for money
• Can be used as a training needs analysis tool

There are two versions of View360 Global™

The training facilities provided View360 Global™ can be delivered securely using a system based on a Local Area Network (LAN – Desktop version) which does not require the internet or delivered through a Cloud-based system through a browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox.

The Cloud-based version platform is capable of delivering the training in over 90 languages either from one location or remotely between locations in different cities or countries. An exercise can be facilitated from London with the participants being in many different countries. Up to 18 participant laptops can be logged in to an immersive training at any one time on either version.

We can demonstrate the security of this platform to the acceptable industry standard and work with the client to ensure confidence is achieved, which would include the setting up of the client’s Government standard Amazon Web Space to hold any course materials.

The significant difference between our platform and others is that the client can exercise complete autonomy in the course design and use of the platform. There are no restrictions or conditions placed on its use in terms of oversight of any materials or course programs by AML Consulting (Global) UK Ltd. The client is not required to use our materials, pre-designed programs or use our consultants for delivery.

The only requirement for any intervention by AML Consulting would be for the provision of training, upgrades any technical support or the separate contracting by a client to assist in any particular design process that does not form part of the training offered under any contract awarded. The client also has complete control over the access to, and security of its course materials and product, as no materials, are held by AML Consulting or its subcontractors that are providing support.
