For serious higher education learning, Second Life probably isn’t the ideal virtual world platform. New and innovative “Serious Game” virtual worlds include Virtual Heroes. This RTP-cased serious game company develops simulation and digital game-based learning systems.
A recent Virtual Heroes initiative is an interactive healthcare team trainer called 3DiTeams, which has been designed in collaboration with Duke University Medical Center to train medical and nursing students. It uses HumanSim, a simulation technology that closely mirrors human ability and motion.
Virtual Heroes’ healthcare team learning system, which utilizes Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 2.5, was created with funding from the U.S. Army’s Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center. The leaning system is based on a healthcare team coordination curriculum called TeamSTEPPS, developed by the U.S. Department of Defense and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
