ARISE Project now has website

by chasleff is the location of our new wordpress site for our project. While it was developed mainly as a site for the users of the scenarios we are developing, it is also a place where anyone interested in what we are doing can go to learn about our project.

Blurb from home page:

The Augmented Reality Integrated Simulation Education (ARISE) Project provides healthcare educators with a unique opportunity to enhance student engagement using a novel adaptation of augmented reality (AR).

iPads, QR Codes, and the Augmented Reality and Interactive Storytelling (ARIS) platform, allow for a completely immersive student experience complete with:

    Realistic videos of patients as they experience health care events across the continuum of care.
    Videos of discipline-specific, hand-off reports for a more engaging learner experience.
    Genuine lung sounds and heart tones that can be placed in realistic locations for better diagnostic value.
    Vivid, high-quality images of wounds, lines, chest tubes, etc. to deliver what even the best moulage cannot.

In addition, many of the ARISE Project’s designed learning experiences include a simulated patient chart with an interactive Medication Administration Record (MAR), up-to-date diagnostic results and labs, and evidence-based, best-practice provider orders.

Wow Charles, this project continues to impress! What is the ETA for folks to be using the ARISE simulations in practice?

It is already being used in several WTCS schools. CVTC (obviously) has been using it, I believe WCTC and Western have been using it a bunch too. Many of our scenarios must be incorporated in a curriculum and kind of require the documentation to make sense for the simulations they enhance.

However the Therapeutic Communication serious games are pretty self explanatory and easy to use. If anyone wants to try them, search for 'therapeutic' in the ARIS search and all the results are ARISE products.

Please keep in mind for anyone who plays these, they were designed for Healthcare students to learn about serious subject matter, but they also try to encourage success through an attempt at gamification to inspire a desire to replay the 'game' until they achieve 100%, and also explore why some choices are not correct.

The gamified feedback of stars and Xs are not meant to trivialize the serious subject matter in any way.

By the way, the students really do play them over and over again until they get things correct. And they also seem to start to realize that there are certain types of responses that are better than others. These 'games' really seem to help make the practice more real, and are succeeding in helping the students create habitual positive therapeutic interactions with real patients.

The website looks great. If others out there are interested in following their blog, the feed should be

Congratulations on getting it up and running. I'm really glad to have a place to send people I tell about your work and expect to learn a lot from what you have to share.
