Securing Immediate Student Feedback

UPenn utilized SimCapture's evaluation tools to gauge students' confidence before and after simulations, and to assess the effectiveness of the exercises to provide feedback in a positive feedback loop.

High Center Throughput

SimCapture's automated recording, portfolio assembly, and reporting features allowed UPenn to run a high volume of simulation events more efficiently, freeing up time to focus on student progress.

Remote Student Portfolio Access

Remote debriefing options allowed UPenn to review course surveys and track student progress; overall quality of scenario debriefing improved among faculty.

#1 Ranked Nursing Scenarios

UPenn leveraged their 15+ years of simulation experience and SimCapture expertise to offer robust and proven simulation-based nursing scenarios to other nursing programs.

Universal Video Support

SimCapture is the only solution that can leverage any camera type; this allowed UPenn to utilize several camera types in order to maximize videos of simulations.

Multiple Simulation Settings

UPenn utilized SimCapture's flexible, multi-angle camera and monitor capture options to effectively capture student activity in a wide variety of mock healthcare settings.

Nursing success story

University of Pennsylvania


The University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing utilized SimCapture as a vehicle for assessing student performance, skills and comfort level with simulations.

They utilized the SimCapture technology to record and review course surveys, and so instructors could analyze student progress. UPenn utilized SimCapture's evaluation tools to gauge and measure students' confidence before and after completing various simulation exercises, and to assess the effectiveness of the exercises to provide feedback in a positive feedback loop. As a result, faculty were able to suggest improvements in students' technical and communication skills and instructed students on ways to make processes more efficient.

They were also able to improve the overall quality of scenario debriefing among faculty members due to SimCapture's robust feature set. Some of the automated processes in SimCapture alleviated many of the tedious aspects of running simulations, so that faculty could run recordings more efficiently, freeing up time to focus on student development.
