The Learning Pie
Picture a pie.
Make it your favorite flavour (it is starting to be cooler here, so I am picturing a pumpkin pie with whipped cream).

After fifteen years, ellicom is excited to unveil its new and improved brand identity, which includes new colours, taglines and fonts.

Virtual reality in education and training: Since the advent of virtual reality (VR), this type of sensory experience has promised even more motivating and engaging training programs by allowing learners to acquire knowledge through sight, hearing, and touch. 360° video exposes learners to content by allowing them to experience a physical environment or phenomenon. It can also be used to raise awareness of a cause or particular situation.
