Cubic announced today that it was awarded Best Tutorial at the 2014 Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC).
Cubics tutorial describes how to leverage the vitality of commercial games in serious game-based training to create a more effective learning experience.
Cubics virtual reality courseware is being developed to help underpin the effectiveness of the U.S. Navys new Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) once they are deployed on operations and to enhance the training of the sailors who serve on them.
Designed from scratch, the innovative solution fully leverages the latest advances in simulation and learning technology. Studies estimate a 40 percent increase in retention of knowledge by using the experiential learning method found in Cubics technologies, as compared to the traditional courseware model that focuses on memorization.
This award is a validation of Cubics commitment to creating exceptional training experiences and putting our customers first. We continually strive to deliver innovative, best-in-class solutions and the highest degree of service possible, said Bill Rebarick, general
manager of Cubic Advanced Learning Solutions.
Cubics game-based virtual reality courseware is an example of how the use of simulation
technology is offering efficiencies and improvements in today's military training.
