Installation Deployment Officer (IDO) Training Simulation
Skills and Ideas Taught: This IDO Training Sim is intended to be a capstone experience that students play after completing a full traditional classroom course and curriculum on the roles and responsibilities of being an Installation Deployment Officer (IDO). Therefore this does not explicitly teach concepts directly, but allows the students to apply the knowledge they have acquired and exercise their critical thinking skills, based on the learning objectives.
Goal or Challenge: To resolve any issues that are presented, manage personnel resources, and problem solve all logistical challenges in order to keep all CHALKS and flights on time (or as much as possible.)
Primary Audience: Students who are completing the Installation Deployment Officer course at the USAF Expeditionary Operations School (+18 years old)
Assessment Approach: All events in the serious game, including every action (or inaction) the player performs is tracked and displayed in a detailed After Action Review interface that allows them to self-assess as well as an instructor facilitator to review their performance.
Game Engine: Unity Pro
Operating System: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10
Special Hardware: None
