Since 2020, the global pandemic has posed post-secondary institutions with an interesting challenge: how can professors offer engaging, experiential learning tools online while in-person classes and resources were sparse, or unavailable.
While colleges are slowly returning to in person learning, this particular institution needed to find a way to offer hybrid options for said learning tools. This is when they approached XpertVR to develop a virtual training scenario that could be offered in person via VR headset as well as online for students in the Pharmacology course.
In the past, students in this program would practice the procedures of administering medications individually, under the live direction of the instructor of the course – either in person in the classroom, or online on Zoom.
The student would verbally describe the actions they would chose to take, based on the scenario parameters given by the instructor, also administered verbally. The institution decided to explore avenues for an independent exercise in lieu of instructors conducting these one-on-one with their students.
Results & Feedback
Although the college we worked with would like to stay anonymous for this case study, we can share that they were very pleased with the final product.
We look forward to future collaborations with this institution and are excited to see what comes next.
