MARLA – Germany
MARLA is an educational game with which trainees in metal and electrical engineering can practice fault diagnosis. The game was developed for use in vocational school lessons and in inter-company training centers. The trainees learn the various steps of fault diagnosis on a complete offshore wind turbine – directly in the classroom using virtual reality on the Oculus Quest.
In subsequent lessons, they reflect on and deepen the virtual learning content in-group work and apply the fault diagnosis skills they acquired in the game to other professional situations. In terms of content, the focus is on expanding competence in fault detection, localization and the procedure for rectifying faults, the so-called fault diagnosis competence.
