Cyber Wingman™ is released at AETC
Cyber Wingman™ was a big hit with airmen at the 2011 AETC Symposium in San Antonio, Texas in January. The theme of the Symposium was “Developing America’s Airmen Today…For Tomorrow: Recruit, Train, Educate…Innovate”.
Northrop Grumman Corporation (NGC) invited us to co-exhibit in their booth. We demonstrated the Cyber Wingman™ learning game for IT Security on the big screen and iPads.
Sealund collaborated with NGC on this rapid development project. Northrop Grumman designed Cyber Wingman™, and our development teams created the 3D graphics, animations, and bonus video game. The Cyber Wingman™ games run on PCs, Macs and iPads.
Cyber Wingman™ Learning Games
The Cyber Wingman™ IT Security learning games consist of a 3D Stereoscopic trailer to engage the learner which then moves the learner to a high end 3D Motherboard in which their jet moves around the board as the aviator answers the assessments correctly. Points are accumulated which give the aviator an opportunity to play a bonus game for successfully completing the training.
Results of Deployment
Airmen were eager for their turn, and completely engaged in the Cyber Wingman™ IT Security learning games. Many commented that they would prefer to learn the annual compliance training while playing a learning game and felt they would retain the information much better.
Your thoughts? What do you think about using learning games on the iPad for training in the field?
