Completed Simulation Software Development
In April 16 phase two of a three phase redesign and rebuild of our VCC 2.6 simulation software was completed marking a significant milestone in online simulation development within the Faculty. Phase two provides a working version of VCC 3.0 which, although not complete, allows us to build new simulations and upgrade existing simulations that offer many affordances not found in previous software versions. Information on the features supported by 3.0 can be found here: VCC 3.0 Simulation Core Features
After 2 months of testing and quality assurance, both virtual and physical, our first 3.0 sims were trialled with students on a first year pre-registration nursing course during April/May 2016. Initial feedback from the students was overwhelmingly positive!
