With SIMTICS as part of your curriculum, learners are able to study and experience each procedure in a rich variety of ways to optimize their learning. Each medium complements the others, creating a multi-dimensional learning environment that delivers a superior experience to achieve better results in labs and clinicals, and ultimately better patient outcomes.
Guided, skill-based learning via virtual simulations helps students learn faster, become more competent and gain a higher level of confidence than with traditional education methods. Benefits for faculty too, like more time to concentrate on advanced topics.
Have your 24/7 web-based simulation environment running in a matter of hours. Students don't need to travel to a specific location. All they need is a computer with a mouse or other pointing device, and an internet connection, so they can use SIMTICS from anywhere, anytime - even from home.
SIMTICS offers your students comprehensive learning, unlimited practice opportunity, plus testing and built-in progress tracking. This gives you an objective assessment of their competency against pre-defined standards. LMS integration available, to transfer scores to your gradebook through LTI.
There is no need for extra hardware, and no additional equipment to be purchased, housed or maintained. Our web-based technology helps to reduce the resources required for training, including consumables, and because students are better prepared, it helps you get more value from your instructor face-to-face time with them, as well as making the most of your existing investment in physical simulation equipment.
With SIMTICS as part of your curriculum, learners are able to study and experience each procedure in a rich variety of ways to optimize their learning curve. The four media complement each other, creating a multisensory training experience that delivers superior learning to achieve better patient outcomes.
Like an online flight simulator; learn, experience and test your ability to perform procedures in real time via the patented "SIMTICS Integrated Cognitive Simulator”.
Learners can rotate and zoom in on the 3D anatomical models, with the ability to drill down through layers of anatomy and click on specific structures to see labels and descriptions.
In the video section an expert shows the learner how to perform the procedure in a step-by-step demonstration.
Detailed step-by-step guidance for performing the procedure, with illustrations, key terms and hyperlinks to relevant external references.
Users can study the procedure in Learn Mode which provides clear guidance and cues, then test their proficiency unaided in Test Mode. Scores and errors are tracked.
Learn, practice and test yourself on the go via text, video, anatomy, simulation and quizzes.
*Available from the Apple store.
Multi-choice quizzes are included so the learner can check theoretical knowledge that cannot be tested in the simulator.
Learners get access to a personal logbook that tracks their complete learning history with simulation and quiz scores, study time, and errors made.
Access your trainees’ results directly from the SIMTICS reporting menu or have the scores automatically sent to your LMS.
If desired, you can use LTI or our API to integrate SIMTICS with your LMS. This provides single sign-on and enables students' scores to be transferred directly to their gradebooks.
Our cloud-based software runs on Windows and Mac. Apps are available for iPad and iPhone.
Sonography trainees can use SIMTICS unique Dual Mouse interface to simulate using both hands simultaneously while performing a scan.
