Abstract

In academic institutions, the use of web-based technologies to support is gaining global momentum (Kirkwood and Price 2014). As technological advances increasingly offer effective, efficient and flexible learning approaches, and as students are becoming more technologically astute, there is a need to further encourage the use of TEL (Walker, Voce and Jenkins 2013). Additionally, by incorporating virtual reality videos into the website, it reinforces practical knowledge and offers real life immersive learning environments for repeated skill development, and gaining experience of situational awareness and human factors, which are essential within healthcare (Minocha 2015; RCN 2016).

Multiple media is utilised to capture, deconstruct and rebuild clinical skills activities, as well as acting as a platform for resources focusing on non–technical skills. The material developed is housed in a central repository, which can be accessed and revisited on any media device at any time or location.
