Virtual Learning Environments Made Easy

Learning is never an easy task and being forced to learn is even more onerous. The question DDA and DDA Medical asks itself day in and day out is how do people learn best. The answer of course is they learn best the way they learn best.

No two individuals are alike, neither are there learning styles, preferences or abilities. Perhaps that is exactly why, school systems, around the world generally do such a poor job of sharing knowledge and stimulating the thirst to learn. Wanting to learn is as important as the curriculum, the teacher, the school room or the media utilized.

Wanting to learn is predicated on it being fun, easy, engaging - kind of an organic experience. Nothing contrived, nothing artificial, nothing forced. When you think about it, living, laughing, loving, sharing, dancing and a hundred other ings are organic experiences that no one teaches you…you just do.

DDA and DDA Medical’s capabilities in conceptualizing, designing, developing, and deploying organic elearning, virtual learning environments, virtual medical and non-medical simulation experiences goes well beyond the norm. We believe that it is virtually impossible to find a training or learning or teaching task we cannot enhance, maximize and successfully deploy in ways that every learner will feel comfortable with.

VLE and VMS by DDA and DDA MEDICAL

VLE or Virtual Learning Environment is really a catch-all for a wide variety of LMS, learning management systems, elearning, teaching, training, instructional, educational and informational electronic/cyber based online and mobile platforms. Encompassing textual content, video, animations, simulations, virtual medical simulations, personal video and narration based instructors, avatars, animated 2d characters, animated 3d characters, illustrated and animated devices and equipment, and more.

Virtual learning environments often include testing and/or quiz modules, dashboards for learner control, password protected log-ins, dynamic content display, tracking of user participation and a range of other features and options.

The possibilities are endless, the enhancement to the learning experience is significant, and the capabilities of VLEs by DDA Medical are ever evolving. Whether improving patient care, training industrial workers for safety or teaching students and clinicians, no one does VLE like DDA and DDA Medical.

Virtual Medical Simulations Revisited

When you look at a wide cross section of resource material relating to virtual medical simulations, one curious thing that becomes obvious is that much of the information was generated in the era of y2k. 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003, the good old days, the heady days of virtual this and virtual that, representing the world’s preoccupation with everything digital and every cool new technology.

Many of those initiatives went nowhere.  So while that time period laid the foundation for future virtual medical simulation discussions being held, even today, they are generally woefully out-of-date. Further, in this person’s opinion, like many y2k false starts and unfulfilled dreams, the early false start for VMS deveopment may have hampered future interest, growth and funding.

Today, the need for virtual medical simulations is greater than ever, the technology far better, the performance and benefits almost limitless and the actual activity, unfortunately, somewhat subdued.

Perhaps it’s time for a VMS renewal, a rebirth of interest and an acceleration in development. What is old is new again, just better, faster, smarter and more necessary than ever.
