Developing Virtual Reality Simulations for Novice Users
This presentation focuses on successful approaches to designing educational virtual reality simulations for healthcare education. We will present recent work on Virtual Essential Newborn Care (vENC) along with key strategies and lessons learned through developing and testing mobile virtual simulations in resource-limited settings.
