PPI-PROJECT 2020: VR SOSU Platform
VitaSim is developing a virtual reality learning platform for SOSU educational programs.
we create and customize solutions.
In collaboration with
In collaboration with the Knowledge Center for Welfare & Assistive Technology West Denmark, VitaSim will adapt their existing software package to a tailor-made learning platform. Using this platform, educators and students will be able to create, organize and visualize different types of educational material and train precisely the skills needed.
The platform is expected to save teaching hours and resources, remove large financial up-front consultant costs, and by acting as a safe, innovative learning environment bridge the gap between theory and professional practice.
VitaSim’s vision is to establish a common ecosystem that embraces both institutions and private organizations in the educational sector – the VitaSim software package will help pave the way for widespread development and easy implementation of virtual reality in education and training.
The aim of the project “VR SOSU Platform” is to customize and implement a virtual reality learning platform where users can create and share educational material and training tools. It provides a unique opportunity for integration with existing e-learning systems through LTI standards, creative in-house development by both teachers and students, and provides an environment for sustainable and future-proof content.
The project's target concept.
Specialized and professional development for the future.
The collaboration with the Knowledge Center for Welfare & Assistive Technology West Denmark will utilize a large network with professional experience in a number of relevant fields and all parties will draw value from open knowledge exchange.
The Knowledge Center was among the first institutions in Denmark to implement VR in their educations and has a wide network within Social Welfare & Health Training in Denmark, which they among other things support with educational resources.
The collaborative project is expected to provide VitaSim with a unique insight into the needed validation and further development needs of the software package. Furthermore, from a company perspective it will increase our end-user potential and therefore revenue, which in turn will lead to local job creation and increased export opportunities as a result of better product-solution validation in the public sector.
For The Knowledge Center the product is expected to save time for teachers, save costs for new teaching material and lower student drop-out rate – and ultimately make future social and health professionals better equipped for their professional careers.
The project has received support from the fund for Public-Private Innovation (PPI) Partnerships in the Region of Southern Denmark of which Welfare Tech is the main operator. PPI allocates financial funds for testing, adaptation and development of health and welfare technology products.
The economical ressources for PPI projects come from both Regional Business Development Funds and from the European Regional Development Fund and runs from 01/01/2019-31/12/2021.
A total of DKK 3 billion will be invested in the period 2014-2020 in growth and employment in Denmark, targeted for, among other things, innovation, education and employment promotion. The project “VR SOSU Platform” takes place in the period 01/02/2020 – 01/10-2020.
