Virtual Medical Coaching
Because fantastic education doesn't just happen
Our education platform offers Virtual Reality intertwined with adaptive learning and metric feedback for learners which allows novices to be guided through the correct steps and have good habits ingrained while letting more experienced students have the freedom to experiment by adding complexities into the simulations.
The simulations allow for unlimited training in an immersive, safe environment. In addition, our adaptive digital learning platform moves e-learning from linear training to a more sophisticated program able to adapt to both learners and their instructors. This offers accurate analytics on the progress made and the areas still to work on.
This framework advocates that learners obtain knowledge, skills and abilities through the following combination of sources: • 70 percent from on-the-job experiences • 20 percent from social sources, such as interactions with others • 10 percent from formal educational events
But is it still accurate or appropriate? It is a mistake to assume it’s the only ratio that works or that it’s the best among many possible ratios.
Take the example of medical professionals: Do you want your health care professional to be learning most of what they know with a scalpel in hand while patients lie on the table? Or would you prefer them to have undergone extensive formal training in surgical techniques before ever going into the operating room? In such scenarios, surely there are cases that the healthcare professional will learn from, but these aren’t jobs where formal training on foundational skills can be minimized at the risk of patients.
This is where simulation is key. It allows the OSF ratio to be fluid and alter depending on a learner’s needs.
