Challenge

Robert Morris University’s nursing program wanted to offer their students more clinical decision-making opportunities beyond the classroom. For their pharmacology course, students have to learn a wide range of material in a short period of time. Therefore, the faculty needed to implement consistent, supplemental, self-paced learning experiences for students to enhance their engagement and accelerate learning.

Solution

Having had previously worked with Lumis to implement the InSight Platform technology in classroom settings, RMU instructors and faculty were already familiar with the immersive and comprehensive capabilities that Lumis technology offers. Two instructors, who were both teaching pharmacology, decided to offer their students an opportunity to use the web- based InSight Platform independently. They believed that seeing the physiological changes of certain medications could help students enhance engagement and retain the
material.

Results

Student engagement with the learning modules was very high, with more than 90% of the students using the learning modules on their own time, and about 50% of the students repeating modules to reinforce learning. This engagement demonstrates that students valued the on-demand access of our system to increase their knowledge on pharmacology and augment their clinical decision-making skills beyond the classroom.

Testimonial

“The Lumis platform is an engaging, intuitive piece of technology that anyone can use, students will appreciate this type of learning experience. Bringing tools like augmented reality into classrooms is the future of teaching.”
