With SIMTICS as part of your curriculum, your students are able to optimize the way they learn skills. The rich learning environment enables them to study and experience each procedure in a variety of ways - video, text, anatomical models, simulations and quizzes. This multi-dimensional approach not only engages students and allows them to create their own learning path through each module, but it also helps them to build deep and strong knowledge as they experience the information in multiple formats.
Each student can study at their own pace, which is particularly beneficial for ESOL students and those who need more time to feel confident. They can repeat simulations as often as they need to build both competence and confidence. They arrive for labs and externships much better prepared, ask better questions, and achieve better results when they're there. An additional benefit is that instructors often find that face-to-face time can be structured differently to allow more opportunity for higher-level learning.
Guided, skill-based learning via virtual simulations helps students learn faster, increase competence and gain a higher level of confidence than with traditional education methods alone. Immediate formative assessment keeps them on-track, supporting deliberate practice, and there's built-in summative assessment too, with quizzes and test-mode simulations.
Your web-based simulation environment can be available immediately. Students don't need to travel to a specific location. All they need is a laptop or tablet with internet access, and they can use SIMTICS from anywhere, anytime, when they have time - even at home. SIMTICS lets you see their progress, so it's perfect for blended and flipped classrooms.
SIMTICS offers your students unlimited practice and testing opportunity, and built-in progress tracking in their personal logbooks. This encourages more accountability from them and gives you an objective assessment of their competency against pre-defined standards. LMS integration is available to link to your gradebook.
There's no extra hardware or equipment to be purchased, housed or maintained. Our web-based technology can reduce the use of resources, including consumables, and because students are better prepared when they come to lab sessions, in some circumstances it can potentially lengthen the life of your 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 an engaging, multidimensional training experience that delivers superior learning to ultimately achieve better patient outcomes.
Like an online flight simulator. Students learn, experience and test their ability to perform skills 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 demonstrates how to perform the procedure step-by-step. The learner can toggle to the text to access more detail about each step.
Detailed step by step, "how-to" guidance including pre- and post-procedure considerations. Enriched with illustrations, key term look-up, and hyperlinks to external references.
Two types of simulations: Learn Mode provides clear guidance and cues, and Test Mode benchmarks skill proficiency. Scores and errors are tracked.
Multi-choice quizzes check the learner's theoretical knowledge that cannot be tested in the simulator. The quiz changes for each new attempt.
Each learner has a personal logbook that tracks their complete learning history with simulation and quiz scores, study time, and errors made in the simulations.
View and print your students' study activity and results directly from the SIMTICS reporting menu. You can
also have scores automatically sent
to your LMS.
Students always come first in our books so we provide comprehensive support for both instructors and learners, but we're pleased to say our software is extremely reliable.
Our cloud-based software runs on Windows and Mac, and also supports mobile devices. (Simulations need at least a tablet-sized screen due to the need for accurate positioning.)
If desired, you can use our LTI interface to integrate with your LMS. This provides single sign-on and enables students' scores to be transferred from SIMTICS directly to their gradebooks.
