Luma Immersion draws on the principles of immersive learning, an advanced form of a learning environment where technology brings the learner as close to the real environment as possible. The product allows for users to experience well-documented learning benefits of immersive learning, including: creating immediate relevance by providing exposure to learning in the simulated environment; an experience that reinforces concepts; and a self-controlled pace in a personalized, controlled environment with interpolated assessments.
This learning approach benefits the trucking industry because it saves training time and money, there are no additional technologies or skills required, and it give instructors a more impactful method to use when training learners.
