The DUSON trio uses video as an instructional tool for high fidelity or "lifelike" clinical simulations. Students view the video in Google Glass or on an iPad while delivering care to a mannequin. This creates a sense of realism, known as augmented reality, which helps students learn in a safe environment before stepping into a hospital.
