Virtro secured funding from the Canadian Department of National Defence via the Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program. The project encompasses the development of three immersive language applications designed to assist armed forces personnel in refining and sustaining their proficiency in both English and French languages.
Each simulation has been meticulously crafted to cater to the needs of both English and French language learners, affirming Virtro's commitment to delivering comprehensive language training solutions.
The Human Interface Technology Lab at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand has just concluded a study comparing Real Humans to Virtual Humans teachers and the results concluded that:
"A virtual human is as good as a real-life person when it comes to helping people practice new leadership skills".
The advantages of using Virtual Humans was amplified once the training moved in Virtual Reality leading the researchers to conclude that the combination of Virtual Humans with Virtual Reality training is the most effective to train business leaders.
