“We want to make training engaging, easily accessible, and fun. Humans are social animals and we often forget that playing has been an integral part of learning, since our very first cultural memory. But a safe space is needed for playfulness and curiosity to flourish. We are leveraging virtual reality, realistic 3D models, and a collaborative online training platform to create this safe space for corporate learning.”
How we got here
Games with a purpose
Kanda began with interactive educational games for kids with learning disorders. It was our introduction to the benefits of gamification and play in a learning environment.
Runerod contained two hours of gameplay and 12 hours of standardized math lessons.
We took the lessons learned from educational games and translated that knowledge into engaging professional training tools. Even adults benefits from interactivity, engagement, and gamification to support learning.
We explored new technologies, devices, and tools to develop our training platforms.
With the introduction of the Oculus Rift in 2016, we saw the potential for truly immersive training that could be conducted anytime, anywhere. We developed our first VR project within a few months.
Heavy Industry Projects
Together with Siemens Gamesa, we explored the use of VR technology to create an immersive experience when practising installation procedures in the offshore renewables sector. This was the proof of concept that we needed to revolutionise procedure training across industries.
This began a long-term partnership with Siemens Gamesa for ongoing development of virtual reality training scenarios.
Virtual Training Platform
When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down most face-to-face training in 2020, we had the opportunity to put the Kanda training platform to the test. Companies needed alternative ways to complete necessary employee training, and we were ready to deliver high-value resources that kept those businesses running safely.
Investing in Sustainable, High-Quality Training
We have made a sizeable investment in building the Kanda training platform, creating certified VR training simulations that meet international standards. By allowing employees to train remotely, organizations can save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with onsite training.
Introducing standardized courses
With an undenial demand from the wind industry customers to produce standardized GWO training content, 2022 was the year we launched the first of many training courses on a subscription model.
2023 and beyond
Seeing new customers on our standardised courses in the digital simulator for wind technician training come in from corners of the world we have not experienced before, we are very excited to expand our offering to the global market and help training managers all over the world scale VR training and benefit from the cost-efficient and flexible training solution in the digital simulator.
