Enhance Your Healthcare Simulation Debriefs Using Video with Vosaic Connect
Today some helpful content from our sponsor Vosaic! Debriefs are a crucial element in the medical simulation process. Harnessing video to increase learning opportunities and expand the value of debriefs is an excellent solution for many medical simulation scenarios. While many tools exist to help incorporate video analysis in the simulation process, they often involve expensive subscriptions, specialized A/V equipment and hardware, and complicated onboarding.
Vosaic, formerly Studiocode Group, launched Vosaic Connect in July, and has become an invaluable tool for many simulation centers, as it solves many of the traditional challenges of integrating video into learning situations. Vosaic Connect is a secure, cloud-based system that allows you to record video, instantly upload, and mark moments for review during debrief. This is all accomplished via an iOS app. Utilizing video means that skills can be captured, reviewed, and shared, strengthening learnings while increasing collaboration between learners and educators.
When using Vosaic Connect for debrief scenarios, users can take advantage of a wide range of features to enhance learning.
- Annotations – Add context to marked-up moments, create new moments with attached notes, and comment on moments from other users, adding depth to debrief scenarios
- Multi-user timelines – Different users can contribute their markup to the timeline, creating a holistic snapshot of different reactions to the same training scenario
- Mark-ups – Tag important moments during simulation or after, and then review and analyze them during debrief
- Instant Upload – Capture video using our iOS app for instant upload or any other A/V equipment to pre-record video and upload later
- Customization – Create your own markup forms with buttons to address your specific debrief needs
Solutions Using iPad and iPhone apps, Vosaic Connect removes traditional barriers to video utilization in simulation training. By functioning as the sole video capture solution, Vosaic Connect is a low-cost solution.
A Suite of Products
Vosaic Connect is the newest product from Vosaic, which has gained a name in the video analysis industry with its flagship product, Studiocode. Studiocode, in tandem with Vosaic iCoda, provide customizable, in-depth video analysis. Studiocode offers features for those looking for a more robust analysis solution.
Low Cost of Entry
Vosaic Connect offers a variety of plans that fit every level of user needs. You’ll even start with a 14-day free trial that will grant access to up to five users and 20 hours of video content. Vosaic Connect is simple to use, meaning a two-week trial allows you to explore how it can make a difference in your simulation exercises. A Product Always in Motion Vosaic Connect is built on user needs and experience. That means that new features are constantly being added, tested, and rolled out, based on feedback from current users. Vosaic wants to provide users with constant insight into that process on the Vosaic Blog.
Incorporating Vosaic Connect into training and medical simulation scenarios will enhance skills training for learners and educators.
