Video Based Review: Otago University
Online technologies have an important part to play in health professional education. They allow us to shift learning into the student's control, and provide opportunities for students to address tasks when they are ready to do so. We needed a flexible technology to help us teach critical reflection to health professionals, and the video annotation tools in Bracken provided everything we needed. The team at Bracken have been very supportive and generous with their time and have helped us complete a successful pilot designed to improve health professionals' ability to reflect on their communication with patients and whanau.

OP online was an appealing prospect for my teaching and my students. In previous years running our biomechanics and video analysis course, student surveys showed that the few online lessons available on Silicon Coach live where engaging and taught them more than conventional lectures. This year we have decided to replace all lecture classes with Bracken built lessons, specially designed to cover the content and theory needed in this course. Early impressions are good with students engaging and enjoying this new learning environment. This mean formal class times can now be spent on, doing stuff and not sitting around listening.
