Government agencies are using Teleplace for distributed training and learning, including information-centric simulations and virtual instructor-led classrooms.

  • The Air Force’s Air Education Training Command, as part of its MyBase project, used Teleplace for virtual instructor-led classroom training of enlisted personnel to save time and reduce costs by eliminating the need for trainees or instructors to travel to physical training facilities.
  • The Army TRADOC provides a complete virtual environment for teaching about specific incidents by using Teleplace to hold pre- and post-simulation virtual classroom briefings in conjunction with incident simulation exercises it had already built in Active Worlds.
  • The Navy uses Teleplace to create virtual mock ups of submarine command centers and perform individual and collective training to teach crews how to operate systems and equipment, and execute missions as a team.
  • vGov, the federal government virtual world program that includes partners from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Air Force, Department of Homeland Security, National Defense University and U.S. Department of State, is using Teleplace to provide secure and trusted immersive virtual environments for federal agencies and military organizations.
