ACE! + Oculus and AtHand Serious Gaming

ACE! is AtHand’s modular gamification platform with easy configurable games, based on the clients’ wishes. Standard software, custom games. With our ACE! Platform we manage to make learning and development more fun, measurable and sustainable.

Oculus Insights partnered with AtHand to enrich their existing change program for Veterinary practices, by developing a Serious Game. Main goal: improve communication skills, personal resilience and collaboration. This is successfully achieved, both quantitatively and qualitatively.

During the game, participants were not tied to a specific moment. This gave them autonomy in learning and made it easier to connect with colleagues to collaborate on assignments.

Make Real & Keltbray

Make Real and partners Keltbray collaborated to design and develop “SkillShield” as an answer to some key issues facing training in the construction industry. With irrefutable video learner assessment evidence, organisations are more protected when onsite incidents occur within construction. At time of audit, learner records matching construction site workers can be corroborated as a result, to ensure those on site are those who undertook the training. Furthermore, the tool allows for VR training operation, replay and feedback, either in person or remotely. This tool has been rolled out across a number of high-profile construction projects during 2021.

OrCam Technologies

Pembrokeshire College

The Audactive project was borne out of the power of mobile devices to read aloud, understand voices with the challenges of engaging contemporary learners, more comfortable to using smartphones than computers and keyboards. Audactive enables teachers to create learning activities so learners can have a ‘conversation’ with coursework and avoid using a keyboard. This facility is particularly useful for learners with barriers to learning or who need to learn on the move. The successful trials of Audactive in UK colleges have led to a new fully functioning mobile learning technology that enables learners to have a conversation with their coursework.
