Government agencies and offices can use Azivia in a variety of ways that will help reduce costs and increase the ability to provide direct communication and training to all levels of employees and management. In addition, the ability to develop real world simulations and serious games means that various critical incidents, planning decisions and even working directly with the public can be experienced online, preventing mistakes and problems when integrating new ideas and techniques in the real world.
Training sessions can be completely customized to the needs of the specific government office or agency. Since progress is trackable, managers can easily determine which employees are best suited for a variety of jobs and specific training programs. This immersive experience within a virtual world is also ideal for developing crisis response protocols and procedures as well as training military, police, corrections officers and other law enforcement agencies.
Counseling for post traumatic stress including critical incident debriefing and stress management can all be done in the virtual environment. This provides both patient confidentiality and a very user friendly platform between the therapist and the patient. Other employee assistance program services can also use a 3D environment to provide support to employees without the need for travel and other associated costs.
For campuses that are based online or in virtual world settings right through to traditional physical campuses, Azivia provides a highly motivational, highly practical way to provide learning and real world experiences for students in a virtual environment. Students can demonstrate an understanding of theory, knowledge and skills in a trackable, online virtual world where they interact with faculty and each other, just as they will when they are in a real world workplace. In addition, having a virtual 3D tour on any campus website is a simple and effective way to give prospective students from anywhere in the world a chance to view the campus, highlighting all the benefits of enrollment.
Virtual campuses can use the Azivia 3D virtual world platform in several important ways. These can include :
- Providing very interactive, highly visually appealing 3D classrooms and learning environments that engage students and provide a real world classroom experience online
- Streaming video conferences and training sessions on a virtual campus within a private virtual world platform
- Having more than a website for students to use to connect with each other and with faculty. Instead of a simple website, a 3D environment that is warm, inviting and personalized greets each student as they log on to the system
- Providing a variety of different virtual rooms and areas on campus including classrooms, lecture halls, student lounges and specialized rooms for real world simulations and practice
Corporations, like the agencies and organizations mentioned above, will definitely find a variety of uses for Azivia 3D virtual world environments. Businesses can host trade shows and conferences within a virtual world, allowing other business or clients to take a virtual tour of the company or the products right from the comfort of their own office or home computer.
Without the need for costly travel, managers from different offices nationally or internationally can hold virtual meetings in virtual boardrooms, using streaming video, live voice or text chat or even whiteboards to provide a very interactive online meeting. Client meetings, training sessions and information can also be provided to clients and customers in a highly visually appealing method, much more interesting than an online catalog or photo gallery of short videos and pictures. New ideas, prototypes and inventions can also be tested within the virtual world, allowing the best possible roll out in the real world.
Azivia can be used in a variety of ways to train professionals in the medical industry, providing real life scenarios in a 3D environment. The possibilities for using Azivia in healthcare settings reach far beyond the actual walls of the hospital, doctor's office, clinic, medical training program or patient care facility. The 3D world also allows medical professionals to develop specific online content for patients in managing health conditions in their own home. The patients can log online and be immersed in a 3D learning experience that allows them to practice home care techniques as well as understand more about their current health conditions. Patients, doctors, nurses or counselors can interact through virtual counseling sessions to provide support and assistance without the need for physical face to face meetings.
For training and consultation between and within the medical community Azivia opens doors to virtual online meetings, consultations between doctors and specialists, learning experiences and options for virtual trainings. In addition, staff in specialized areas such as emergency rooms, can be fully immersed in a 3D replica of an emergency response, becoming more knowledgeable on protocols and procedures. In the virtual world setting professionals can hone their skills and responses without any risk to patients. The sessions can be recorded for later playback and evaluation and scores can be used to track the progress of the various users.
