Immersive learning is a delivery technique designed to simulate the reality of critical incident management.
Immersed in a realistic environment, students can experience the decision-making process and understand the complex issues involved.
Immersive learning systems can be used recreate live incidents or major crime investigations such as train derailments, plane crashes, riots, armed sieges, etc.
Through the use of video, audio, photos, operational radio traffic, telephone, maps, intelligence, documentation and background noise critical incidents can be simulated. With careful sequencing and timing of the simulation incidents can be recreated in a vivid and very realistic way. Through Immersive Learning systems training can be delivered in a far quicker and more thorough way than is possible with traditional training techniques.
Feltech have recently completed the design and installation of the first of two cutting edge suites for Babcock and the London Fire Brigade. This innovative IP based solution routes signals through the local area network to allow content from both pcs and cameras to be monitored across large format displays and simultaneously recorded. This system takes the opportunities for realistic immersive learning to a new level by linking sites together over WAN networks. For the first time this gives the Emergency Services the opportunity to run linked interactive training sessions simultaneously from their own locations, with Fire, Police and Ambulance working together in a virtual training world, echoing what would happen on the ground at real disasters or accidents.
