4. What is meant by the “gamification of training”? 
Almost all training practical exercises and scenarios can be considered as games. However, we take that a few steps further, to engage your employees.  When there’s an emotional connection with an experience, it encourages learning retention and muscle memory.  That is what our gamification process tackles. We solve the problem of getting users excited to train and to help them retain as much training content as possible. trainPOINT implements gamification of training content in several ways. First, we offer training metric leaderboards, multiplayer-multi-user experiences, and implement feedback systems when positive or negative training practices are observed or when goals are being met. Second, we allow users to customize their in-training avatars to allow for a more personable feel. It is real-time feedback systems that stimulate users as they traverse through experiences and make them memorable and allow for greater skill retention.

8. What training metrics are captured while users conduct training?
trainPOINT understands the need for clear key performance indicators and reports generated from your training experience. We have a baseline of industry standard metrics captured that vary based upon the course content and procedure. We believe that metrics are most effective when they are defined by the client and customized to fit your organizations needs. These metrics must be defined and  displayed in a meaningful way that speaks to your corporative initiatives.

9. How interactive are your AI characters and what role do they play within the VR training content?
Most of our VR and non-VR training content works with 4 different types/levels of AI.

  • Ambient AI – This is composed of simulated characters operating around the training area. Some of these characters can be interacted with but mostly are in the area for visuals and realism. Some examples of this would include pedestrians around a construction site, workers in a warehouse, cars or other vehicles driving through or around the area, and other non-vital characters.
  • Vital AI – These are AI characters that are part of the learning experience. They can be simulated job leads within the training area that the user gets instruction from, or they can be other workers in the area that can be interacted with. Some examples of vital AI are workers not wearing proper PPE and must be identified, helpers working that give vital information to the user, a vehicle following user hand and arm signals on a construction site in order to safely navigate the landscape, and other workers that can help in a procedure. Both ambient and vital AI types can be utilized in ways to best organizational training needs and should always be used when possible. Furthermore, these types of AI, including their interactions, are highly customizable.
  • Learning AI – This type of AI is not seen within training scenarios. Instead, this AI collects data from the user in real-time and modifies the scenario to best fit the user’s experience. This AI will adjust difficulty levels based on user performance, and could even dispatch vital and ambient AI throughout the experience. Do not worry, this AI is not concerned with world destruction. Instead, it can be seen more as a coach that wants its users to push themselves to the max!
  • Backend AI – This type of AI is run on our servers and is used for data analytics and other tasks related to giving trainers the most usable, functional, and relevant data needed for better decision making.
