Enhance Flexibility with Multiple Types of Facilitation

UbiSim is designed to be versatile, allowing for flexibility in adoption and use within the curriculum.


Learners take turns participating in the simulation in small groups, alternating roles between the active participant who cares for the VR patient, the learner triggering the preset dialogs on the computer, and the active observer taking notes.


A facilitator triggers the dialog of the patient, the provider, family and friends, while the active participant cares for the patient in the role of the nurse. The simulation can be projected onto a larger screen so observers can see events as they unfold.


Up to 3 active learners can collaborate together in the same simulation, with the ability to hand each other objects like stethoscopes, assess the patient, and share information in real-time. This model challenges students to function within teams.


Peers can learn by actively observing the simulation on their computers or joining the simulation as a “ghost” in virtual reality.
