“Imagine more than 1,000 nurses learning how to use defibrillators at once, each delivering shocks to a single patient. If a patient dies, the instructor is immediately told which nurse failed, and the nurse then tries again, but with more assistance.
It’s not a process patients would want in the real world, but it’s one example of what can be done virtually with a new online-learning portal called Smart Sparrow, said Dror Ben-Naim, the start-up company’s founder. Smart Sparrow takes the idea, which can be found in products released by other publishers, and builds on it, Mr. Ben-Naim said, by giving educators the tools to create their own customizable interactive content as complex as a virtual operating table or oxygen-electrode laboratory.”
