“We worked with Dynacor to inform them of what we needed and they delivered…We wanted something that is engaging in a way familiar to today’s technology-driven students. With this, we are able to bring the motivation from the world of gaming into learning. Already, students are coming back to ‘play’ the VR scenario over and over again until they master the game/skill.”
“I like how it is different from the lab environment, and the ways it makes me think about what I have to do next.”

“It feels like you are actually there with a real patient.”

The final result is an immersive virtual experience where students can perform step-by-step procedures. Feedback provided at the end of the scenario allows them to repeat the scenario and perfect their skills before interacting with a real patient.
The use of this technology is proving to be an incredible tool in building both muscle memory and assisting learners to develop confidence.
The “IV Medication Administration” virtual reality experience earned a Bronze International Telly Award for Immersive & Mixed Reality (Instructional & Training).
We’ve also received an EPIC MegaGrant for our creative use of the Unreal Engine to create a safe learning environment for nursing students.
