Challenge

How could 3D models be used in education of the professionals? How could games promote learning? How would professionals be able to train their skills during the working day? How to get students to become inspired about learning e.g. nursing skills? What ways employees could be encouraged to learn new things or rehearse previously taught things?

 

Background

There are various professionals working in the Mikkeli hospital campus. These may include doctors, nurses, cleaning staff, logistics professionals, social workers, psychologists, nutritionists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists, office workers, and students in various fields at various stages of their studies. The employees have rich and diverse expertise. In ever-changing world, ensuring and strengthening the staff’s competence plays an important role.

Part of the daily challenges may be routine work, but some of the skills may need updating from time to time. The daily work is hectic, so training has to be available at any time, when there might be suitable moment for learning and training.

 

Technology, data, and materials

IFC and FBX models will be handed out on-site.

There are five HTC Vives and 10 Samsung VRs available for development, testing, and for some gaming.
