Your Voice: student feedback
The Your Voice app was developed so students could have a simple method of supplying feedback on various aspects of teaching. Students can feedback on any session or workshop and when gathered, the feedback is anonymous.
Students have two options when composing feedback, spontaneous and requested. Spontaneous feedback is delivered to the relevant feedback team who will then anonymise and forward any actions to the necessary teaching staff. Alternatively, requested feedback is used when the provider ‘requests’ feedback from a particular teaching session (e.g. at the end of a taught lecture).
Forensic Dentistry is an iPad app developed by Digital Education for Dentistry that is designed to help students’ identify teeth through abnormalities or blemishes. Students are tasked with matching a collection of individual teeth to their owners who have all died from a gas explosion in a gang hideout and to identify which gang member escaped unscathed.
The player is given dental records for each of the gang members which show the unique characteristics used to identify the teeth, and once they have matched the teeth to the gang members they can deduce which member escaped.
eBuddi helps towards Sierra Leone's Ebola-free status. The project relates to a digital toolkit designed to provide a virtual classroom.
The technology uses both 2D and 3D simulation to teach local health carers and members of the public how to care for sick members of their families, how to clean up and disinfect, and how to protect themselves, their families and their communities.
More about the story can be found on the University website.
