Developing Virtual Simulations to Support Retention of Skills in Essential Newborn Care
This presentation highlights the approaches to developing scenario-based virtual simulations including level design and flow, responding to the needs of novice users and gamification. We will use as a case study, vENC, a virtual simulation supporting the retention of health professional skills in essential newborn care
Mr Cook is a Research Engineer at the University of Washington and lead developer for the virtual ENC project.
