Virtual campus room, University of Dundee
For the University of Dundee, Nitrospark created a virtual environment which allowed students to collaborate online and help integrate them into the university. The room also linked to the university’s matriculation process and tracked their progress – allowing them into the My Dundee portal once they were able to display the required level of knowledge.
Games-based learning, University of Dundee
Nitrospark developed a challenging games-based learning module, set within an immersive virtual world. Students had to work together to cross a river, using only available items (such as rocks). The programme had more than one outcome, but for each it was essential that students collaborated, planned and communicated. A debriefing session followed the module, to assess performance and alternative outcomes.
Games-based learning, University of Dundee School of Medicine
For the University of Dundee School of Medicine, Nitrospark delivered an immersive, problem-solving 3D simulation/game designed to build skills in critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and numeracy. Within the virtual environment, the team had to work together, against the clock, to save a bridge from being destroyed. Completing the task was a significant challenge – and impossible without close teamwork. The same programme has been delivered successfully, and with outstanding feedback, to organisations in both the public and private sectors.
