Immersive learning cybercrime training programme nears completion

Immersive learning cybercrime training programme nears completion

Yesterday we reached round three of our immersive learning cybercrime training programme with Police Scotland. Running concurrently with some iconic sporting events such as the British Lions rugby tour to New Zealand and Wimbledon, sporting clichés naturally abound.  

So we recognise that whilst we ‘are in striking distance now’ that ‘it’s not over until it’s over’.  That said, we are rather proud of the fact that users seem to think that, ‘it’s a whole new ballgame‘ in terms of an approach to making cybercrime training accessible and engaging. 

Followers of our programme, may have noted that police architecture varies almost to the same extent as individual learning styles.  Contrast round two at Historic Tulliallan castle:

Cybercrime training v Braveheart ?

with the rather post-classical building at Glenrothes, in our featured picture for this article.  

Our new immersive learning cybercrime training doesn’t require buildings at all of course.  With users using tablets to access the training, the need for a classroom has long gone.

We felt it was important to help users adapt at their own speed to immersive learning.  Thereafter, the potential for them to access a catalogue of training courses and drive their own professional development, is huge.  As one user at our recent session said:

“Even officers with limited computer skills/experience are able to navigate through the programme.” – from a self-declared sceptic.

So it is looking like there is ‘everything to play for in the second half‘ but for now ‘we are just taking it one game at a time’
