The DiSTI Corporation, a leading developer of interactive 3D software and customized training solutions, announced today that L-3 D.P. Associates (L-3 DPA) has successfully integrated Replic8 content into its enterprise-level courseware development system, known as C3. In adding Replic8 to its C3 Editor tool, L-3 DPA has broadened its training capabilities by expanding the spectrum of supported assets to include high-fidelity 3D interactive materials.
As a leader in human performance solutions, L-3 DPA provides comprehensive analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation services for any training environment. The C3 enterprise-level courseware development system offers significant improvements to existing development tools of SCORM-conformant interactive multimedia instruction, including front end analysis, an enterprise web portal and web-enabled development tools. C3 facilitates online collaboration for all members of the development team and enables customers to provide essential feedback.
As a ground breaking new tool, Replic8 creates 3D interactive maintenance and task training applications in less time than it takes to make a video. Working directly with Autodesk’s 3ds Max, Replic8 takes 3D models and converts them into interactive content to create training applications. Replic8 turns traditional page-turning learning into an interactive training experience that increases knowledge retention, shortens training schedules and engages the student. With its Java-based framework, Replic8 material easily integrates into L-3 DPA’s C3 Editor.
“L-3 DPA’s integration of Replic8 into C3 is a perfect example of how DiSTI strives to deliver top-tier products to our customers in order to further their development portfolios. Our goal with Replic8 is to offer an easy to use, intuitive editing environment in which to create interactive 3D learning content,” said Joe Swinski, President of DiSTI.
L-3 DPA’s C3 courseware development system (l-3training.com) is used for military, government and commercial markets.
