Exploring volumetric video & VR on self-efficacy for first aid training - a pilot study
MetadataShow full item record
The health profession is currently in a global crisis due to the lack of health professionals, such as nurses and doctors. In response to this ongoing crisis, extended reality is being investigated as a potential modality for teaching the next generation of health professionals. In addition to extended reality being used for teaching, dynamic recordings of sequential 3-dimensional models, also known as volumetric videos, have been investigated for their use in education. However, there is a limited amount of research on how volumetric videos compare to conventional 2D videos. Therefore, this thesis compares how volumetric videos and 2D videos influence a person’s self confidence by having participants learn how to perform head bandaging in virtual reality through watching either video type. A significant difference in self confidence was found after viewing an instructional video on head bandaging. A significant difference in presence between the videos was also found.
