For Health Professions
This video was recorded by a third student. Instructors didn't have to be there to supervise this skills assessment.
(Expand the image to see the student's reflection and the instructor's critique.)
The complete, easy, no-hardware solution so you can use video for skills learning.
Students use their phones to record psychomotor skills
Easy, private video sharing. Pinpoint reflection and feedback for better learning.
Programs spend tens of thousands on supplies.
Students spend hundreds on textbooks.
Surely $10 per student for year of video sharing, feedback, and discussion is a bargain.
The Research Tells Us That Video Works
"Students' positive comments about the experience of videotaping their performance included: the value of peer support and encouragement; an obvious and strong sense of teamwork to complete the task; the opportunity to engage in peer feedback, self-reflection, and self-evaluation; and learning from other team members. Students also reported that the video approach seemed less subjective than being evaluated by a live observer; and they welcomed the opportunity to repeat the skill until they mastered it (deliberate practice), using peer review and evaluative comments to improve their performance and learn new information." (DeBourgh & Prion, 2016. International Journal of Nursing Education Scholarship)
How are Health Programs using WeVu?
What do Instructors and Students Say?
Trinity Western University Nursing
I want to say how much the students and I are enjoying WeVu for learning/demonstrating their practice of nursing skills.
Selkirk College Nursing
I really enjoy commenting on the videos, I watch them in 1.5 time so it’s quite fast. The students are truly appreciating the process now, there is much less stress, and more time for reflection… Overall we love it! just working out our own kinks with new technology and then updating our course outlines to match the new process.
UBC Okanagan School of Nursing
At UBC-O School of Nursing, we used the system to record, share and annotate our mental health simulations amongst students and staff, and immediately recognized that this system was superior to any existing simulation recording software!
Selkirk College Nursing
I actually just did the WeVu set up and think I have created the assignment myself. This program is really slick!
Douglas College Nursing
WeVu is such a great piece of technology that isn’t complicated and lets students share their face-to-face skills work in safe environment, even during COVID-19.
Best of all feedback from faculty is personalized and timely!
See students practice.
Assess their skills. Without being there.
See them practice and do feedback and assessment across time and space
Huge benefits for programs
Clinical programs need to produce trained practitioners. Programs need to demonstrate that they’ve trained their students. WeVu can significantly lower instructional costs as students can do low-fidelity simulation almost anywhere.
You don't need to be there
WeVu uses students’ phones or program webcams and IP cameras as recording equipment. Videos get uploaded to the cloud, helping you get a handle on the challenge of limited instructor time and limited training space.
Phones and the Cloud. Simple.
WeVu allows students to upload practice videos and faculty to easily go through students’ video practice and give pointed, personal, time-stamped feedback. Students already take lots of video and upload it to YouTube and Instagram. Easy.
