3D Systems is demonstrating the MentorLearn Cloud-Based Simulation Management System on mobile devices such as mobile phones and personal tablets for the first time at IMSH (International Meeting of Simulation in Healthcare) 2018. MentorLearn provides online access to the Simbionix simulators, and lets educators perform administrative tasks.
Its library of ready-to-use courses and interface to design courses makes it easy to create a standardized training curriculum, with the flexibility to add educational content and proficiency benchmarks. The online system takes performance data from all simulation training and saves it to one database, providing a single access point to all the simulator training data – and the program director can see how residents are doing by looking at the performance reports. It also has the end-to-end solution needed by simulation users and administrators.
“Modern evidence-based training programmes in technical simulation include a period of self-directed training sessions on the simulator before attempting to pass the relevant test and acquiring certification. The MentorLearn Platform is a great help for the course administrator in this respect. It is possible to follow the individual trainee from your home computer, assign cases to train and post study material, keep track of how the trainee does and how much time she spends on the simulator. The different 3D simulators in our unit may all be found in our MentorLearn access, and it is thus possible to see what other courses the trainee has worked on.” Says Karen Lindorff-Larsen.
