The Avenor Virtual Trainer Project--A 3D Interactive Training Module on Energy Control Procedures: Development and First Validation Results.
This paper examines the implementation of 3D simulation through the development of the Avenor Virtual Trainer and how situated learning and fidelity of model representation become the basis for more effective Interactive Multimedia Training Situations. The discussion will focus of some principles concerned with situated training, simulation, interaction and immersion, which will help to set a background about the defining attributes of new virtual training systems. Through the Avenor project, the focus is on the instructional aspects of the technology and its importance in achieving a learning environment that challenges and supports effective training.
