User Experience Design of Virtual Training Environments

Friday
10:00am to 11:00am
Grand Foyer

As new technologies are developed, we need to adapt and apply UX methods based on a deep understanding of the new domain and context. Designing virtual environments for healthcare training is a challenging application of UX principles. Interface and interaction requirements are elicited from not only a usability standpoint, but also an instructional standpoint, guided by a real-world need for skills training. This poster identifies key considerations for the design of virtual training environments, presenting two case studies from the healthcare field: an immersive virtual operating room and an IV insertion simulator. Attendees will learn how UX principles and methods can be used to guide the development and evaluation of training technology, and will gain an appreciation of how new methods can be developed and applied to other new technology areas.
