LONDON, March 27, 2012/PRNewswire/ —


A new version of Caspian Learning’s powerful military training software was launched this morning. The software, called VBSWorlds, allows military and defense organisations to create virtual training scenarios that run on handheld tablets and mobile phones.

Caspian Learning today announced the release of a new version of their popular SCORM compliant military training simulation software, VBSWorlds. The software, currently being used by NATO to create maritime interdiction operations simulations, now includes technology that enables any virtual training scenario to be published to the internet, to an iOS-based device (iPhone/iPad) or to an Android device.

The latest version of the software is based on technology grounded in cognitive behaviour study, and is designed to ensure that actual learning and behaviour change takes place within training simulations. This is achieved by allowing developers to create highly immersive 3D training scenarios or ‘serious games’ to improve learner engagement, immersion and interactivity.

VBSWorlds is part of the Bohemia Interactive Simulations suite of products, which includes the formidable VBS2, and is compatible with existing VBS2 art objects. Virtual training scenarios created with VBSWorlds can be linked in to any SCORM compliant learning management system to support real-time performance feedback and tracking.

Lee Rushworth, a spokesman for Caspian Learning said that “VBSWorlds is one of the few mobile training applications that has been completely designed from the very beginning to support and encourage actual behaviour change. We’re extremely proud that scenarios created with VBSWorlds can contain all the information found in PowerPoint slides, pageturners and traditional elearning, whilst making their contents infinitely more engaging and effective.”

VBSWorlds was launched today and a free trial version is available to download from the VBSWorlds website [http://www.vbsworlds.com/?page_id=1106 ].

Caspian Learning will be at GameTech 2012 in Orlando, Florida this week on the Bohemia Interactive Simulations stand as a partner and would welcome the opportunity to speak to anyone about VBSWorlds.
