New VR Disaster Simulation Project Shared at the XVR User Working Group Meeting in Manchester

[中文翻譯版本即將推出。]

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI) works with the XVR simulation which develops Virtual Reality (VR) simulation software for emergency response professionals. On 26-28 June 2019, two representatives of the HKJCDPRI participated in the XVR User’s Group Meeting 2019 held in Manchester, United Kingdom.

 

The user group meeting is a global platform for VR simulation training providers to learn about the latest developments in VR simulation tools, learning pedagogy and exchange innovative ideas with other VR disaster simulation users around the world.

     

Mr Gary Law, Manager (Innovative Learning) delivered a presentation on the integration of online VR simulation exercise into traditional lecture-based e-learning courses which is a pioneer project in the field. This pilot project is in collaboration with the Emergency Medicine Unit of the HKU Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine. Participants of the e-learning course will be put at different VR simulated disaster scenarios online to handle various emergency responses.

 

The meeting was ended with a learning tour to the Coventry University and the Simulation Centre, Health and Life Science Building and National Transport Design Centre.

 

It is hoped that the new knowledge shared and learned at the meeting will help the global VR disaster simulation training community to strive for excellence in VR disaster simulation training!

The HKJCDPRI staff, Mr Gary Law, Manager (Innovative Learning) presented on “Update on the development of the HKJCDPRI E-learning with the XVR 360 Viewer”

Mr Jeffrey Shum, Project Officer, experienced the new VR training tools

The learning curve interactive screen and real-life scenarios was used in the Simulation Centre of the Coventry University

The virtual reality environment was adopted into the research project in the National Transport Design Centre of the Coventry University
