Augmented Reality Healthcare Scenarios

Back to Healthcare Open CourseWare


Audience: Instructional designers, Industry training and students

Augmented Reality Integrated Simulation Education (ARISE) scenarios merge the concepts of simulation with augmented reality and game-based situated learning theory within 150 enhanced scenarios for healthcare students.

Augmented Reality is an enhanced version of reality created with the use of technology. For the purposes of this project a media image, video, or sound is overlaid into the learning environment to provide a more authentic and immersive learning experience for participants. All components are focused on patient-centered care using scenarios across storylines, and lead to the transfer of knowledge/skills/attitudes to real world experience.

Scenario levels:

Clinical Case Studies

Serious Games Categories

Simulation Categories

Scenario Designs:

Each level is developed into one or all three scenario designs: serious games, clinical case studies and simulation.
