Best Blended Learning Solution 2017
Blending VR, eLearning, and Face-to-Face for Radiology Students
It is a great addition to the skills labs we currently have and if a student does not have a partner to practice with, this is a great tool to supplement that needed practice time and it helps students improve upon positioning skills and also patient and radiation technologist safety with regards to radiation exposure.
Virtual Medical Coaching’s Virtual Reality Edition has been an invaluable, radiographic procedural tool for our students. In their immersive VR world, student radiographers are able to position a patient, select technical factors, and create multiple images without the use of ionizing radiation.
We implemented virtual reality learning resources using Virtual Medical Coaching radiography software in 2020/21 to supplement our simulation education in our digital x-ray room. We have utilized both the practice and assessment modes with our students and find that it provides a safe environment for them to learn radiographic techniques independently, with staff support when needed.
