System: CAMPUS System for Virtual Patients

Design/structure: CAMPUS uses different approaches for representing Virtual Patients using a simulative and a rapid e-learning player with one authoring system. Additionally, formative and secure, summative assessment software complement the didactic concepts. Mostly string of pearls/linear based.Target audience: Students, medical doctors

Users: Universities from Germany, Netherlands, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina

In what educational setting: All

Is this meant for PBL, independent learning, another learning model? CAMPUS offers three players: Simulative e-learning player, Web-based eViP capable player, and summative, secure, key feature capable exam player. It can be used for problem based learning, self-studying, simulative and rapid e-learning, formative or summative assessment.

License Model: Commercial or free for educational partners

Technical architecture: Can be used standalone, in a web browser or as adaptable SCORM package inside a learning management system. Runnable on all major OS.

Technical requirements: A modern browser for the Card-Player, additionally Java 6 for the other components.

TUSK

Design/structure: The TUSK virtual patient is part of a comprehensive enterprise educational system.  The Case simulator is both string of pearls/linear and global. It has a simple web-based authoring interface and a player for the students. There is also a system coordinator interface used to enter default tests and values which are accessed by authors.  The system contains rules that govern the student's ability to move on.

Target audience: undergraduate students, postgraduate students, CME, schools

Users: Medical, Dental and Veterinary Schools at Tufts University and  other users of TUSK in the US and in Africa and India

In what educational setting: The VP is used for independent learning and in small group learning sessions for Problem Based Learning and for Clinical Reasoning

License Model: Currently requires a free evaluation license, eventually this will be open source. There is a fee  for service if you require Tufts help to install the system.

Technical Requirements: The system runs on Linux from the server side.  The system can be access by any web browser.
