CRAFT Virtual Learning Environment Provides Machine Learning Through Simulation
Working in heavy machine shops can obviously be a hazardous environment. Learning how to work in such spaces and properly use heavy machinery carefully in a simulated virtual reality environment makes a lot of sense. Craft, by video gaming company Little Chicken, provides this kind of safety training platform for craftsmanship.
Craft is an innovative training platform for technical craftsmanship in metal, electrical and mechanical technologies. 3D virtual simulation or real-life equipment, combined with moodle integration and gamification elements, provides engaging, realistic and safe learning environments for professionals and students alike.
The Craft platform is a unique blend of expert knowledge training, gamified simulation technology, and engineering. Training operating staff by using the CRAFT creator-tool: let your experts build step-by-step procedural tests for the machines you use and introduce students to safety and operating procedures before they enter the workplace!
