Using VRP MIL, learners can walk up to game characters in a VBS simulation and engage with them in the local language.
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) June 25, 2015
NATO ACT (Allied Command Transformation) has ordered Alelo’s VRP® MIL product for use at the NATO Joint Force Training Centre (JFTC) in Bydgoszcz, Poland. JFTC plans to use it to prepare NATO personnel for key leader engagements in Afghanistan, as part of the Resolute Support 15-3 training exercise in July.
VRP enhances commercial game engines with Virtual Role-Play training capabilities. Learners speak and choose screen-based options to interact with artificially intelligent characters that behave in culturally appropriate ways. The Alelo VRP approach is grounded in proven pedagogy and social-science research. Simulations include tasks and situations similar to what learners are likely to encounter in the real world. Life-like practice without the risk of failure ensures that learners retain and sustain their acquired skills, and can confidently apply them during their missions.
NATO has licensed Alelo’s VRP MIL plug-in for VBS3, together with virtual role-players (VRPs) for Afghan culture and the Pashto language. Using VRP MIL, learners can walk up to game characters in a VBS simulation and engage with them in the local language.
This purchase follows a successful trial of VRP MIL in conjunction with the NATO Resolute Support 15-1 exercise in February 2015. Trainees participating in that trial consistently rated VRP MIL highly as being fun to use, realistic, and helpful for developing conversational skills.
Alelo has developed game-based cultural awareness training courses for over 80 countries, under the highly successful VCAT (Virtual Cultural Awareness Trainer) product line. VRP MIL fully integrates cultural awareness into VBS virtual training, so that cultural skills become an essential contributor to mission success.
