Talespin Expands the Immersive Soft Skills Learning Content Library and Adds Desktop Streaming Support to Its Platform

Talespin | April 30, 2021

Talespin Reality Labs, Inc., a spatial computing firm focusing on employee knowledge transfer and capabilities insights, announced today the extension of its off-the-shelf learning content library as well as desktop content streaming functionality for its app. Talespin expands the library of digital soft skills learning resources with new 'Recognizing Bias' and 'Practicing Self-Awareness' content titles in this update. The learning modules, which were previously only available on extended reality (XR) platforms, can now be streamed via web browsers on desktop devices, lowering the barrier to entry for immersive learning.

The new content and streaming capabilities arrive at a time when individuals and businesses need adaptable learning resources capable of successful upskilling and reskilling. According to the Congressional Research Service, unemployment hit a 70-year peak of 14.8% in April 2020 after the COVID-19 pandemic. In February 2021, Pew Research discovered that 66% of unemployed adults had considered changing their career or area of employment, highlighting the need for more agile reskilling and knowledge insights solutions to guide professional growth.

Talespin has established itself as a leader in skills-based immersive learning, amassing a library of training material covering key leadership and communication skills usage cases. By extending its social impact acceleration relationship with JFFLabs, an innovative market-facing unit of JFF, a national nonprofit that drives transformation in the American workforce and education systems, the organization is aggressively targeting new audiences with its content offering and desktop streaming support. JFFLabs, in collaboration with SAP, is using Talespin's new training approach to engage high school-age learners from three areas, including Queens, New York, St. Paul, Minnesota, and Hammond, Louisiana in Southeastern Louisiana. The eight-week program offers high school students a one-of-a-kind comprehensive learning experience to learn employability skills while increasing student interest in and persistence toward educational and career goals.

New Desktop Content Streaming Support

Talespin's desktop streaming technology allows users to access emotionally authentic immersive learning content on Mac and PC devices through a protected website connection, increasing user accessibility. Talespin's content streaming technology employs sophisticated augmented human simulations, conversational interfaces, and voice feedback to provide a degree of consistency and user experience that exceeds that of conventional role play or remote learning solutions such as e-learning and video. Employees can use this experience anywhere to replicate training scenarios in a comfortable environment where they can fail and learn without being judged.

About Talespin

Talespin is developing a spatial computing platform to support talent growth and skill mobility in the workplace of the future. The business, which was founded in 2015, uses its proprietary XR technology platform to include XR-based learning and training applications, virtual reality field solutions to support employee job success, and a new skills-based approach to work and productivity. Talespin, which has offices in Los Angeles and Utrecht, The Netherlands, is constructing a future of employment in which the gap between learning and execution is bridged, allowing people to choose new career paths that address the needs of both firms and individuals.

iMocha launches project-based assessments to simulate real-world challenges and enable experiential learning

iMocha | April 13, 2023

iMocha, the world's leading skills intelligence and skills assessment platform launches project-based assessments to its growing portfolio of assessment types. It is built for talent development teams to gather whether employees are skill-fit and ready to be deployed on projects and determine ROI of learning programs. Today, tech assessments are usually done via single-task coding assessments, whiteboard interviews, and MCQs but that's seldom enough to gauge project-readiness of employees or know the effectiveness of the upskilling programs. Especially for job profiles like front-end developer, back-end developer, full-stack developer, assessments that go beyond algorithms, syntax, and logic are required. iMocha's project-based assessments help talent professionals overcome these challenges and determine skill readiness, including problem-solving skills, domain-specific skills, contextual understanding, and ability to think through a project. In August 2022, the beta version of iMocha Projects was deployed for iMocha's existing customers that included enterprises and learning platforms. Through the project-based assessments, L&D teams were able to automate time-consuming, manual evaluations that could be subject to bias. Further they also received detailed skills analytics about their employees – which helped in creating accurate and personalized learning paths. Some of the most popular skill sets beta users utilized were ReactJS, Data Science and Machine Learning, Java Spring Boot, MySQL, and more. Sujit Karpe, CTO and co-founder of iMocha, explained, "This is iMocha's version of capstone projects: we provide the data, the problem statement, and essentially everything required to successfully work on a project. Often, coding assessments fell short in determining real-life skills; they also cannot handle multiple project files like ReactJS, Angular, Jupyter Lab, and more. With iMocha projects, talent development leaders can bridge the gap between experiential learning and hands-on knowledge application by evaluating employees on real-world challenges, similar to what they would be facing on the job." He continued, "With iMocha Projects, talent leaders will be able to show true value gained via their L&D programs and measure training effectiveness objectively." About iMocha iMocha is a skills intelligence and assessment platform that enables talent leaders to make smarter talent decisions with its skills-first insights. 500+ organizations across 70+ countries trust the platform to acquire job-fit talent faster and to measure the ROI from their talent development initiatives. It empowers talent teams with the largest skill library with 2500+ assessments, AI-LogicBox (AI-based pseudo-coding simulator), AI-EnglishPro (AI-powered language analyzer), skill benchmarking, upskilling dashboard, talent analytics, proctoring, fraud detection, and custom assessment consulting, etc.

ViewSonic's display at BETT 2023 will offer attendees the ability to experience a range of EdTech solutions across different scenarios: Taking In-class Learning with Digital Content into the Future A teacher will use ViewSonic's ViewBoard IFP8652 4K display and the company's whiteboarding software to showcase how diverse pre-made digital lesson content from ViewSonic Originals, an online resource exclusively designed for interactive displays, can be used to create engaging learning experiences in the classroom.

The company's latest environmental sensor, Sensor Box, will show how educational institutions can harness technology to optimize conditions such as air quality, humidity, temperature, and automatically switch displays on and off, allowing schools to adhere to the UK Green Building Council guidelines. Additionally, demonstrations of myViewBoard Manager Advanced software will provide insights into how IT departments can remotely manage an entire school's displays—including multimedia broadcasting, permission management, and addressing technical issues, all of which avoid interrupting classes and allow students to focus on learning.

Attendees at BETT 2023 will be able to experience how UNIVERSE allows participants to engage in interactive classrooms with new 3D educational content and create unique learning spaces.
