Near-Life™: an immersive learning approach

Building on the years of experience of its founding partners in media and software production, Digital Training Solutions (DTS) is at the cutting edge of interactive and immersive online learning.  Our Near-Life™ immersive learning approach represents a step change in how learning is delivered online.

Near-Life™ allows users to experience immersive, role-play style training, which enhances engagement and knowledge retention at a fraction of the per person cost of traditional role-play training.  The Near-Life™ platform was inspired by cutting-edge research, not only into the benefits of immersive learning but also into the science of gamification. Gamification is a type of training which utilises a game-like approach to improve learning.

Near-Life™ offers a realistic, first person experience that challenges learners to make real-time decisions.  This new approach promotes highly immersive learning that improves knowledge retention and delivers enhanced feedback for users.  By adopting a unique filmed approach, using real actors and locations, the software makes the training scenarios as realistic and effective as possible.

In addition, the broader learning management platform allows for supplementary resources including documentaries, audio clips, written material, quizzes and questionnaires to provide a blended learning approach.
