OEG LLC recently announced a significant new strategic learning partnership with AVEVA. The partnership will integrate OEG’s 3D advanced, remote learning content into the AVEVA Unified Learning offering to optimise and ensure remote operator safety and efficiency, which has become particularly important for industrial organisations during the current global pandemic.
AVEVA Unified Learning delivers engaging off-the-shelf and customer training programmes for industrial operators, bringing together the latest technologies with sound instructional design to deliver competency-based experiential learning, empowering operators to perform better in less time. The OEG content will be used in conjunction with AVEVA’s Learning Management System and high-fidelity Operator Training Simulators to provide a library of on-demand, cloud-based, experiential courses for industrial customers to enhance the training of process operators.
Discussing the partnership benefits, Ravi Gopinath, Chief Cloud Officer & Chief Product Officer, AVEVA, commented, “The OEG Knowledge Library will enhance AVEVA Unified Learning with rich, purpose-built content for basic process operator training, as well as reduce learning time and improve knowledge retention to enable our customers to build and sustain workforce competence.”
Today’s workforce is increasingly preferring to learn in an on-demand, self-paced manner versus a traditional classroom environment. This trend, fuelled by the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, is driving a shift in the training strategies of process manufacturing companies as more and more opt for a virtual environment.
Adding to Gopinath’s view, Ted Davis, President & CEO, conferred, “We are thrilled to partner with AVEVA to become part of the AVEVA Unified Learning solution. This partnership will accelerate our fundamental mission, to bring life-like, immersive content to enhance learner engagement, enjoyment, retention and facilitate greater efficacy in adult learning to the process industries.”
