Development of a Web-Based Related Learning Experience for Nursing Students in an Open University
Abstract: When the COVID-19 pandemic began, everyone had to alter their everyday routines. With the introduction of online education, it became difficult for nursing educators to offer specific lectures that required physical demonstration or to test clinical abilities. Since health workers were also in demand, there were few clinical preceptors to guide nursing students to improve their abilities. This study focused on developing a web-based related learning experience that will give students alternative activities for clinical learning experiences without the use of Computer-Generated Imaging and provide a useful platform where they will see a 360 view of different clinical setups and simulations. The researchers employed an ongoing quasi-experimental research design following the Successive Approximations Model (SAM) as a framework. The team developed the prototype currently being implemented and monitored the online platform this coming second semester school year 2022-2023. The researchers plan to share the developed virtual reality with other academic departments that require on-the-job training or on-site exposure for skills enhancement in the future.
