Phase I Project

In this project, researchers iteratively developed a prototype of Virtual Learning LaunchPad, a virtual learning platform designed to enable college students to learn health-related biological information at a faster rate than students who view traditional video lectures on the same subject matter. Virtual Learning LaunchPad combined non-traditional instructional delivery methods, such as the use of three-dimensonal anatomical reconstructions, step-by-step animations, streaming-animations, voice-overs, and instant replay of important components. The first topic covered by the prototype was reproductive science.
