This video was recorded by a third student. Instructors didn't have to be there to supervise this skills assessment.
(Expand the image to see the student's reflection and the instructor's critique.)
"Students' positive comments about the experience of videotaping their performance included: the value of peer support and encouragement; an obvious and strong sense of teamwork to complete the task; the opportunity to engage in peer feedback, self-reflection, and self-evaluation; and learning from other team members. Students also reported that the video approach seemed less subjective than being evaluated by a live observer; and they welcomed the opportunity to repeat the skill until they mastered it (deliberate practice), using peer review and evaluative comments to improve their performance and learn new information."

At UBC-O School of Nursing, we used the system to record, share and annotate our mental health simulations amongst students and staff, and immediately recognized that this system was superior to any existing simulation recording software!
I really enjoy commenting on the videos, I watch them in 1.5 time so it’s quite fast. The students are truly appreciating the process now, there is much less stress, and more time for reflection… Overall we love it! just working out our own kinks with new technology and then updating our course outlines to match the new process.
I actually just did the WeVu set up and think I have created the assignment myself. This program is really slick!
Clinical programs need to produce trained practitioners. Programs need to demonstrate that they’ve trained their students. WeVu can significantly lower instructional costs as students can do low-fidelity simulation almost anywhere.
WeVu uses students’ phones or program webcams and IP cameras as recording equipment. Videos get uploaded to the cloud, helping you get a handle on the challenge of limited instructor time and limited training space.
WeVu allows students to upload practice videos and faculty to easily go through students’ video practice and give pointed, personal, time-stamped feedback. Students already take lots of video and upload it to YouTube and Instagram. Easy.
