Otis – the virtual patient presents a completely new approach to running training courses for audiologists.
During the actual audiometry course, the instructors focus on teaching the theory and providing the participants with an introduction to using the program Otis. After the course, the participants have the opportunity to deepen the theoretical competence they have acquired autonomously either on a distance learning course or in a suitably equipped skills lab and apply them with Otis – the virtual patient.
At the same time, exercises and analysis data are exchanged over the Internet so that each learner may be individually supervised and supported by the trainers.
These courses can finish with a test which the participants can take using a PC not tied to any particular location.
