Digital Learning: Healthcare Training by Tele-Simulation and Online Cooperation

Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS,volume 349)

Abstract

How can we design engaging and effective online learning in healthcare? How can we perform tele-simulation? How can we make digital learning authentic and not over-produced? How can we apply gamification strategies to enhance online cooperation? Tele-simulation and online cooperation are essential today in healthcare education and training, first of all for medical simulation: The e-REAL® online platform for healthcare simulation, aimed at fostering effective teamwork, knowledge sharing, and cooperation, is a solution that we designed to work within a highly immersive setting where learners and simulation instructors may interact all together in real time among themselves, as well as with virtual objects and avatars. This solution allows simulations in a virtual environment that display challenging situations; unlike other VR and AR solutions, e-REAL allows users to experience full immersion without the need for glasses or goggles, providing a memorable experience with a robust learning outcome. e-REAL is user-centric and easy to use: an Internet connection and a browser are the only requirements.
