Co-op Learning, one of the largest learning platforms for people with learning disabilities, has confirmed it is planning to add VR training and support to its service in Australia.
The company said the new capabilities would be rolled out in stages over the coming months.
“Our team is in the process of working on a suite of new VR features to enhance the learning experience, including a more streamlined, simplified learning system,” co-founder and CEO Peter Capps said in a statement.
“The new VR capabilities will be rolled-out in stages, with first rollout planned for the beginning of the year.”
Co-op Training said it would offer its existing users access to a virtual learning centre in partnership with the University of Melbourne and Melbourne University.
It will also provide new users with access to its virtual learning center through its new partnership with AEP.
“We have always been focused on offering a safe, accessible, immersive experience for all our users,” Co-ops chief operating officer Matt Leung said.
“Through the introduction of new virtual training, we want to continue to build on the foundation of the VR platform to help ensure our customers have the best possible learning experience.”
Coop Learning has previously partnered with the Queensland Government’s Learning Disability Services (LDSS) to offer access to virtual learning on its platform.
In 2018, the company partnered with Australian Government’s National Learning Centre to train up to 50 people.
The company said it was working closely with the LDSS to ensure the new training would be compatible with its existing customers.”LDSS will continue to partner with Coop Learning in order to deliver the best learning experiences for our users and will be in close contact with our customers to ensure that all of our customers receive the best service possible,” the statement said.
