A scalable way to teach soft skills
Soft skills are often overlooked by universities and training organisations, even though employers know they are critical. So early career health professionals often lack these skills. With healthcare educators’ budgets under pressure, face-to-face mentoring is becoming increasingly difficult to resource, making it harder for students to practice their people skills. Traditional ‘1 to 1’ role plays are logistically impossible and expensive to organise, especially for classes of 20 or more.
Unlike other digital authoring tools like Articulate Storyline, Lectora or Adobe Captivate, vPlay was built specifically to support branching role play interaction with virtual patients. It outputs SCORM packages which makes it seamless for you to load vPlays into your learning management system.
vPlay makes it easy for teachers to create, customise and edit their own virtual role plays using simulated characters, each of which have a set of realistic reactions and responses to user input.
vPlay is also designed to help assessment and reporting: each interaction point captures learner data and remediation opportunities at the completion of a role play.
vPlay allows educators and instructional designers to create their own virtual patients, clients, customers or colleagues – selecting characters from a library and then creating dialogue using our online editing tool.
