Learning Made Simple

The DoT methodology to education uses various methods and approaches that enhance understanding, retention, and engagement - while making it enjoyable. Here are some key factors that contribute to simplifying the learning process:

  1. Clear Objectives: We start with well-defined learning goals that outline what needs to be achieved. Knowing the end goal helps learners stay focused and motivated.

  2. Structured Content: We format our content by organizing information logically and breaking it down into manageable chunks. We use headings, subheadings, and bullet points to make content easy to navigate.

  3. Engaging Materials: As you can probably tell, we utilize a mix of multimedia resources such as videos, infographics, and interactive augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (AR) elements to make learning more engaging and cater to different learning styles.

  4. Practical Examples: The DoT suite of solutions is created in collaboration with bus operator traininers.  For this reason, wherever applicable, we provide real-world examples and scenarios to help learners relate to the material and understand its application in everyday situations.

  5. Interactive Learning: We ncorporate quizzes, simulations, and hands-on activities to reinforce learning and allow learners to apply concepts in a practical setting.

  6. Repetition and Reinforcement: If you continue through our materials, you'll quickly see that we deliberately repeat key concepts and use varied practice methods to reinforce learning and improve retention.  This is true across devices and educational programs.

  7. Feedback and Assessment: DoT experiences offer regular feedback and assessments to help learners track their progress, understand their strengths and weaknesses, and stay motivated.

  8. Simplified Language: Wherever possible, we work with transit authorities to use clear, concise, and jargon-free language to make the material accessible to all learners, regardless of their prior knowledge.  In addition, we offer translation possibilities within our experiences.

  9. Active Learning: Group learning and multi-person experiences are encouraged, as we find active participation through discussions, group work, and problem-solving activities, can enhance understanding and retention - as well as the team effort can make learning fun.

  10. Support and Resources: Our programs augment the conventional content that the transit agencies provide, and therefore our combined knowledge libraries offer are a wealth of additional resources, such as tutorials, guides, and mentorship, to support learners in their journey available that support the learning anywhere anytime.

  11. Personalized Learning: A key concept of DoT is that we adapt the learning experience to meet individual needs and preferences, using adaptive learning technologies and offer personalized feedback.

 

By incorporating these elements, learning can become a more straightforward, engaging, and effective process, leading to better retention and and greater satisfaction for trainees.

To accomplish this approach, we offer the take-home training in three core formats

DoT Augmented Reality Bus in Office

Mobile & AR

The integration of mobile and augmented reality (AR) technologies is revolutionizing education by making learning more accessible and interactive. Mobile devices provide flexibility, allowing learners to access content anytime, anywhere.

AR engine on your desktop

Web

DoT web content is comprised of tourable vehicles, clickable procedures, and interactive media such as quizzes to enhance engagement and understanding.

DoT VR headset

Virtual Reality

VR offers users the ability to take complex learning environments with them everywhere.  The eyes-on + hands-on that VR offers enhances engagement and retention by making abstract concepts tangible, relatable, and experiential.

SELF TRAINING & SELF-TESTING

Learn every button and switch in the driver cab, understand the mechanics of the engine, and test your knowledge - all from the comfort of your phone, tablet, or computer.

HUMAN-CENTERED DESIGN

"Our Pre-Trip training was designed in collaboration with MXT, thus delivering expertise in driver training and technology"

BELIEVABLE RESULTS

"For the 1st time, our most recent class just had a 100% pass rate.  That is a $50,000k+ saving, while enticing new drivers and making better safer drivers on our roads"

TAKE HOME POSSIBILITIES

We offer tablet, mobile, PC and standalone VR experiences that help you learn the inside and outside of the bus.

You can pre-test, track results, and even view an Augmented Reality bus in your backyard.

Let's put the bus in your pocket!

LOSS PREVENTION &
RISK REDUCTION

Our CORE SKILLS TRAINING improves the driver's ability to acknowledge and prevent potential accidents by training them to anticipate the many different risk situations they will encounter while on their routes.  

REAL-TIME INFORMATION

With our assessment programs, you can understand how much trainees use the virtual training programs, and track their progress
