A Better Learning Enviorment
Another benefit of this would be allowing for visual learners to better understand and learn about the processes of drilling and production. For one thing, it creates an interest that just talking about the process wouldn't be able to cultivate. In an article by Judy Brown and Michael McGrath titled "Visual Learning in Science and Engineering", they explore how being able to see processes while they are being explained creates a better understanding of more complex ideas. With the complications of understanding drilling and production, this bid will create an environment where students are able to better understand the material presented to them.
