So, we posted a while back on our new Virtual World (Winning in Wireless: Year 1). I thought it was worth mentioning again as we put alot of blood, sweat and tears into the making of it.
What is Winning in Wireless: Year 1 you may ask?…Visual Purple partnered with BTS and took an existing Computer-Based Training (CBT) course and transmogrified it into a virtual world simulation. Not the whole enchilada but more than anticipated. Pretty cool, huh? The Visual Purple technologists have been working technology and creative approaches for months and months separating the wheat from the chaff until things really started to click. The virtual world sim depicts an eager, newly hired CEO of a wireless telecom company trying to find his way, complete with computer-generated voice for some of the non-player characters (NPC’s). No strings attached: no forms to fill out or marketing hurdles. Just click the download button and go.
Winning in Wireless: Year 1 does require a download, a browser-based experience is a cool option for deployment in the Enterprise space.
We have also compiled a short trailer showing the comparison of CBT to the virtual world transformation.
