Intulogy, LLC, an outsource training provider, has announced the formation of a working partnership with Heartwood Studios, a 3D Training and Visual Storytelling studio. With joint-venture simulation training and interactive elearning projects in mind, the two firms have joined forces to meld Intulogy’s proven evidence-based instructional design and adult learning techniques with Heartwood’s C2Act™ 3D simulation learning platform.
Intulogy specializes in design and delivery of custom training programs tailored to clients’ internal subject matter, including software, systems, processes, business model and corporate culture. Understanding that any successful training program must incorporate both solid instructional design as well as a delivery mode that will maximize learner absorption and retention, Intulogy expects the partnership will create new interactive courses that will leverage the unique learning habits of the “next generation” workforce; the GenYers and Millennials.
“The workers coming into the workforce today are accustomed to getting their information over the computer. They are used to animation and interactive games, and to nearly instantaneous feedback and scoring on performance. Handing an employee manual to this new breed of worker may not be the most effective training delivery method. With Heartwood’s technological expertise in PC-based 3D training simulations, Intulogy can offer new training delivery options to our clients,” said Lonnie Harmon, co-founder and managing partner of Intulogy, LLC.
“In addition to offering course delivery based on demographics of new workers, simulations can expedite the rollout of training programs, since companies don’t have to take the trainer to the site where the system, materials or machinery are. With simulations or interactive e-learning, the trainer and the virtual work environment comes to the learner. Experiential training can take place without risk to materials or people, while also saving money in time and travel,” said Bill Sherman, managing partner of Intulogy.
"Training and development leaders face a tough challenge. With Heartwood's C2Act™ 3D Training Simulations, leaders are able to deliver custom simulation training for hands-on procedures -- such as field installations, maintenance/repair techniques, and critical-task operations. With Intulogy’s expertise in instructional design and background in adult cognitive psychology, Heartwood can take its 3D Training simulations and animated e-learning programs to the next level, offering hands-on training via the digital experience” says Neil Wadhawan, Founder of Heartwood Studios.
