RNI GDIS Suports Army Research Institute in Game Based Training Effectiveness Study with Immersive and Desktop Systems

Posted on November 8, 2008

GDIS technologies will be used on both immersive (man-worn systems) and desktop game-based trainers to assess the pros and cons of training in these systems. The Immersive Desktop Analysis (IDA) effort will culminate in running candidates and evaluators over common scenarios and performing exit interviews to score the users comments in each system.

The study is being performed by Army Research Institute and the results have been published in Behavioral and Social Sciences forums as Usability of Wearable and Desktop Game-Based Simulations. Primary authors at ARI were John Barnett and Grant Taylor.
