OVA’s win was announced on December 14th, 2017. 获奖者是列在http://www.brandonhall.com/excellenceawards/excellence-technology.php?year=2017#Best Advance in Unique Learning Technology.

The project was the result of a collaboration between OVA, the company that developed the software; Co-DOT, the research laboratory who provided the cognitive sciences expertise; and Ville de Québec, the client via its programme Vitrine Technologique.

The outcome of the project is a civil security collaborative immersive simulation that simultaneously prepare supervisors (police, fire, paramedic, civil security) to adequately manage a threat in a public place. The trainees were unanimous that it greatly reduced the logistics and costs associated with this kind of training. Most of them also noted that it greatly stimulated information retention and that it trained necessary field reflexes.

Not only does it reflect how we went about the project, but it also rings true to the collaborative spirit that was at the heart of it all. As this award recognizes the cutting-edge technology we’ve developed at OVA, it’s also a promise that in the years to come, people will be able to collaborate in virtual reality all the more often. At OVA, we love to think that we can change the world. 今天, we are more than happy to receive this Excellence in Technology Award from the prestigious Brandon Hall Group; proof that our virtual and augmented world echoes our lives in the ‘real’ world.”
