Abstract

The use of Virtual Reality in healthcare education is still uncommon. Measuring the feasibility of such resources into formal training is critical for quality, satisfaction, and ultimately improved efficacy over other methods. The Co-creation of Virtual Reality reusable e-Resources for European Healthcare Education (CoViRR) team used a proven development framework to co-create and analyze the feasibility and acceptance of 3 Virtual Reality Reusable e-Resources (VRReRs). The co-created VRReRs have been evaluated on usability, user acceptance and pedagogical acceptability using several formal and ad-hoc instruments. The results demonstrated that co-created VRReRs were on-par with other IT products in terms of usability. Also, users appeared ready to accept reusable VR e-resources as useful skills training instruments. Qualitative evaluation revealed that the user base is ready to accept VRReRs but require high technical fidelity and human-centric interaction schemes, supporting seamless integration of user activities in the virtual world, without technical obstacles. Ultimately, CoViRR analysis on feasibility and acceptance of virtual reality reusable e-resources will act as an example by other higher education institutions and tutors in techniques and topics for effective resource creation.
