Virtual Reality Ideal Learning: A Look into Future Medical Classroom
Virtual Reality (VR) is a new technology and is a convenient way to be used as a teaching method in this era. We presented an innovative way of new teaching methods for undergraduate medical students in learning the anatomy of the human body. Learning anatomy using the conventional method by reading books and lectures only creates a lack of interest and most of the time, students will have problems to enhance their memory due to lack of interactive sessions. In this study, we collaborate with industry which has the experience in developing the VR system module. By using virtual reality, it provides interactive learning sessions during the class and encourages students to participate during the class which helps them to build up their self-esteem in answering the lecturer’s questions during the examination. This technology was well received by the medical student and it can fasten their consolidation of knowledge in anatomy of the human body.
