Virtual Learning Environment - A new way to learn.

Sometimes virtual can mean unreal. In the context of a learning experience, virtual should mean more real and true-to-life than other learning experiences.

What could be less real than a text based description of a medical procedure or an industrial process? What could be less engaging than a classroom instructional session? What could be less memorable than line drawing illustrations and captioned still images.

Performing a medical procedure in a virtual OR, simulating a cardiac point tagging procedure in a virtual ep lab or performing an aortic valve replacement on a virtual heart, can be an adrenalin producing, heart pumping, virtual experience like nothing else, short of the real thing.

Perhaps the definition of  virtual as being something unreal is less accurate than defining virtual as actually being closer to reality.

Making A Difference

With the advent of the digital age, like it or not, the English language has changed. Whether Mr. Webster would appreciate the new acronyms and abbreviations is subject to debate. But he would not contest the fact that today’s idiom is peppered with colorful phrases and terms courtesy of the ever exploding cyber world.

Two terms you should add to your own mix if you work in marketing and advertising are VLE and VMS. VLE is the umbrella term and covers all learning done virtually from simple how to subjects to complex medical procedures utilizing lab tools and machines.  Medicine has become such a specialized field that it is comforting to know that nurses, doctors, medical techs in cardiology or oncology or urology to name a few have ways to learn what is required of them through virtual simulation without practicing on real patients, and DDA is privileged to be immersed in several medical projects that are not only life saving but also light years ahead in application.

We are proud of the interactive media work we are doing requiring video, 2D and 3D animation and complex web platforms. Check out our online portfolios and see for yourself, and then call us if you are in the market for a new website or want to embed video in your present site, or better still want to know more how you can utilize VLE with your product or service.

RLS is not VLE or VMS

Seems like everything medical these days is a 3 letter acronym for something. I read an article recently about a firm whose main business was creating 3 word catch titles for diseases. Their work was commissioned by Big Pharma and no doubt most often later supported by extensive Direct To Consumer (DTC) advertising campaigns. Apparently, there is nothing in medical advertising as catchy as 3 word titles for diseases few have heard of but many could have. RLS or Restless Leg Syndrome is one of the more recognizable success stories.

Of more interest to DDA Medical is another pair of Acronyms, VLE and VMS. Virtual Learning Environments and Virtual Medical Simulations, while not quite as catchy as Restless Leg Syndrome, their impact on real world diseases and treatments and their ability to maximize physician training budgets and physician knowledge levels and skill sets cannot be overstated. Unlike the typical Learning Management System (LMS), a virtual training/learning environment or a virtual medical simulation is the single most effective and cost effective tool a medical school or healthcare facility can have to teach, share and enable clinicians across all specialties.

It is somewhat ironic that a Virtual Experience can have more real world impact than a real-world disease title. So despite DTC and LMS, a VMS or VLE from DDA is more than AOK.
