As a member of the Instructional Design Network Board in 2021-2022, I had the opportunity to develop a collaborative lab for FLVC Florida Virtual Campus using the innovative technology offered by SPATIAL.io. This virtual medical lab provided an engaging and interactive learning experience for students, which was highly appreciated by educators and learners alike.
During my presentation with Chad Marin, we had over 140 live attendees, showcasing the immense interest and demand for this unique educational platform. By the end of the webinar, many attendees had already visited the virtual medical lab and explored the various elements of this immersive experience.
To bring this project to life, I built, animated, or modified all the 3D models required for the virtual medical lab. This included creating highly detailed and accurate models of various medical instruments, as well as developing interactive features that allowed students to perform virtual medical procedures in a safe and controlled environment.
What’s more, you can explore this lab right now in VR by using the Spatial app on a Quest headset, or you can access the web version online. This virtual medical lab is an excellent example of how technology can be used to enhance the learning experience and provide students with a more engaging and interactive educational platform.
