OVA AND ELLICOM JOIN FORCES TO TAKE IMMERSIVE LEARNING TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
Combining instructional design expertise with virtual and augmented reality technology, these two North-American powerhouses are coming together to empower businesses around the globe with world-class immersive learning experiences.
TRANSFORMING BUSINESSES, RESHAPING CULTURES AND INDUSTRIES ALL TOGETHER.
Harold Dumur, CEO at OVA
“We’re thrilled to partner with ellicom to bring our virtual and augmented reality expertise to life in immersive learning contexts. I strongly believe that together we can help businesses tackle this emerging paradigm shift.”
Soula Chronopoulos, President at ellicom
“We believe partnering with OVA will certainly take immersive learning to the next level. Already we’ve seen an increase in information retention and employee engagement. Combining our instructional design expertise with OVA’s immersive technologies will truly be a game-changer.”
OVA and ellicom teamed up to create an immersive simulation environment for Hydro-Québec that reproduces the extreme dangers faced by workers in high-voltage environments.
Combining virtual reality technologies and instructional design expertise to improve the learning process as a whole, the energy giant witnessed first-hand just how engaging and transformative immersive learning experiences can be. In fact, Hydro-Québec has noted a significant increase with regard to employee productivity and has dramatically reduced its training costs.
LESS STRESS FOR BETTER CARE
To improve the health industry and support medical staff, ellicom and OVA are collaborating with Northwell Health, New York’s largest hospital network, to provide health professionals with a virtually optimized and immersive stress-reducing program to help prevent burnout—an increasing challenge in this highly stressful environment.
Together, ellicom and OVA have developed a contextually adaptive immersive space that combines guided meditation with virtual reality to reduce stress levels and foster a healthier working environment. This research study is currently in progress.
SAVING LIVES WITH IMMERSIVE COLLABORATION
Crisis situations call for immediate action and efficient cross-functional team collaboration. OVA has developed a collaborative simulation space for the City of Quebec that allows emergency response teams to train in realistic crisis situations.
Using immersive technology and behavioral analysis, teams in simulated scenarios work together in real-time to resolve the complex problems they’re faced with in the field. The City of Quebec has noted higher information retention rates, as well as improved engagement levels amongst cross-functional teams.
Collaboration and performance are monitored in real time to improve interoperability and problem resolution responsiveness, which otherwise involves costly infrastructure implementation and logistics to bring all participants together.
As noted in a recent case study published by Intel, “VR has the potential to not only revolutionize the field of e-learning, but to redesign the global transfer of knowledge as well as how we engage with our audience.”
With a promising partnership in place, OVA and ellicom look forward to sharing their e-learning knowledge, in addition to their virtual and augmented reality expertise, to help businesses transform as they adapt to this revolutionary paradigm shift.
