WeVu for Clinical Skills Learning

Skills. Anywhere.

Practice
Feedback
Assessment

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.

The complete, easy, no-hardware solution so you can use video for skills learning.

  1. students or staff record skills and simulations
  2. students 'hand-in' their videos or share them with peer learning groups 
  3. instructors give pinpoint, time-stamped feedback 
  4. do formal assessments of their skills
  5. archive video and feedback for accreditation

Students can use their phones to record their clinical skills. 

Easy, private video sharing. Pinpoint reflection and feedback for better learning.

Programs spend tens of thousands on supplies.
Students spend hundreds on textbooks.

Surely $8 per student for video sharing,
feedback, and discussion is a bargain. 


The Research​​​​ Says Video Works

"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." (DeBourgh & Prion, 2016. International Journal of Nursing Education Scholarship)

How are Health Programs using WeVu?

  • For sharing video from formal simulation recorded in a simulation lab with fancy cameras
  • For low-fi, frugal sims, recorded with phones or webcams
  • In regular classes, for student submission of skills practice and demos for feedback and assessment
  • Collaborative annotation of images, e.g. in anatomy courses
  • For practice and feedback on presentations

This is actually going to save you time

Watch for one minute in WeVu itself to see how
Just click the Discuss or Annotate button to pop into the WeVu application and try making comments on the video.

What do Instructors and Students Say?

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 actually just did the WeVu set up and think I have created the assignment myself. This program is really slick!

See students practice.
Assess their skills. Without being there.

See them practice and do feedback and assessment across time and space

Huge benefits for programs

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.

You don't need to be there

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

Phones and the Cloud. Simple.

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.


WeVu is for learning skills.
Lots of different clinical skills. Use it for any of them.

WeVu is also a powerful, all-purpose video management system for your program, college, school, university, or business

But we care more that learners are practicing and getting feedback. The fact that WeVu does old-fashioned watch-and-learn video is just a bonus.
