Anyone that is responsible for booking, planning, coordinating and paying for in-person instructors understands that this can be a very costly endeavor. Not only do you have to pay for the instructor’s actual teaching time but you may also be required to pay a standard rate for them to develop the training and adjust the training mode of delivery to your specific requirements. Add to that the necessity to plan and pay for planes, trains and automobiles and you can end up with a very costly training bill.
If you think that this is the end of the costs then you need to look again at your training agreement. You will most likely be responsible for paying for accommodation, vehicle rental, onsite parking, hotel rooms, and even each meal that the speaker eats from the time he or she leaves their home until they arrive back again. Even if this compensation is in the form of a per diem, you may be looking at hundreds of dollars per day plus the actual compensation for the training. This is all required even if the trainer has an “off day” and just doesn’t seem to connect with the material or the target audience.
Instead of using a live body in each training session, a better option is to use a 3D simulation or 3D virtual learning environment to allow an artificial intelligence “bot” to complete the training. This bot is an avatar, the teacher, which interacts with the avatars of the learners and users, creating a very realistic learning environment. Since the AI bot always behaves consistently you don’t have to worry about off days or on days, there will be complete conformity in the information and details discussed. This provides an incredibly uniform training program that is perfect for companies with multiple offices, that train multiple times per year or that use the same training from year to year. Needless to say this also cuts costs dramatically as there is no need to pay for time, travel and incidentals, the virtual bot does it all for free year after year.
Not only will the bot instructor be interactive yet also very consistent, there is the option for the students or learners in the virtual environment to repeat information and to repeat simulations and activities within the 3D virtual environment. People can literally repeat a section multiple times until they feel they have assimilated the information and have gained the skills and objectives required. This is far different than with a live trainer that is on a schedule and must leave one topic or module to move on to the next.
Not every virtual training or virtual simulation is the same, in fact at Designing Digitally, Inc. our focus is to make your 3D virtual training completely unique to your organization’s needs. This can include creating a completely original 3D virtual environment for the learning to occur based on your industry, requirements and specifications. Our staff has years of experience in providing ideas and strategies to create just the look and feel that you want, all you need to do is talk to our team and let us come up with ideas.

There are a multitude of racing types of computer and video games that give a variety of different perspectives of actually driving a vehicle. At Designing Digitally, Inc. we can create 3D training simulations for any state DMV. This will students the experience of actually sitting in a car and driving on the streets of your local towns, cities and rural areas. This is far different than a video game where speed and crazy driving may actually be encouraged. Instead the 3D training simulations we develop will focus on following the rules of the road, adhering to traffic laws specific to your state and even learning how to handle typical and atypical weather and road conditions.
The benefits of having a 3D training simulation to allow student drivers to work through different situations are obvious. This is a completely safe, no risk type of simulation both for the students as well as for other drivers and pedestrians. The virtual driving experience is just like sitting in a vehicle and driving through a town, city or area that is the same as the conditions that the student would face when they get behind the wheel of a real vehicle. Rural driving conditions can be set up in the simulation and for those driving in busy cities all aspects of driving and traffic could be replicated and experienced by the student in the 3D virtual world.
The rules of the road, including how to deal with 4 way stops, what to do when traffic lights are out and who has the right of way at round-abouts can all be included in the 3D online training modules. Students can practice and review these rules of the road over and over until they have them mastered, all without the need for an actual car, an adult to ride with them and the potential risk of an accident. Since the scenario can play out if a mistake is made students can also learn safely what happens when driver error occurs in the real world.
Driving and avoiding distractions, handling road conditions and driving in bad weather can all be simulated in the online virtual training environment. The experience is so realistic for the student that when they are actually in a vehicle and are faced with these conditions they will understand what to do and why it works. Learning to turn into a skid on ice, avoid breaking on a corner on a wet road and how to respond to fog to allow enough room to stop or maneuver around objects on the road can all be developed within the training.
Finally, and certainly not least in DMV training programs, the virtual 3D training simulation can also be used to teach students how to do the walk around and safety check of the vehicle before they drive. Different scenarios can be designed to help students to identify problems with the vehicle and what they can do to correct these issues should they occur. Designing Digitally, Inc. has a team of experts that can create just the driving simulation needed and expand student’s training possibilities through online driving experience.
