Design and Evaluation of a Virtual Reality Simulation Module for Training Advanced Temporal Bone Surgery
Abstract: 
Surgical education has traditionally relied on cadaveric dissection and supervised training in the operating theatre. However, both these forms of training have become inefficient due to issues such as scarcity of cadavers and competing priorities taking up surgeons' time. Within this context, computer-based simulations such as virtual reality have gained popularity as supplemental modes of training.

Inductive learning of the surgical workflow model through video annotations
Abstract: 
Surgical workflow modeling is becoming increasingly useful to train surgical residents for complex surgical procedures. Rule-based surgical workflows have shown to be useful to create context-aware systems. However, manually constructing production rules is a time-intensive and laborious task. With the expansion of new technologies, large video archive can be created and annotated exploiting and storing the expert’s knowledge.

LiveBook: Competence Assessment with Virtual-Patient Simulations
Abstract: 
Virtual-patient simulators play an important role in modern medical education. These simulators provide a safe environment for learning, give contextual feedback to learners, and allow the learner to move beyond the time and space constraints of traditional face-to-face medical instruction. In this paper, we present an interactive simulation system, LiveBook. This system interacts with students in natural language, and provides detailed feedback on the student's performance after a case has been studied.

Implementation of process-oriented feedback in a clinical reasoning tool for virtual patients
Abstract: 
Virtual patients (VPs) offer a safe environment to teach clinical reasoning skills, but feedback is often provided in outcome-, rather than process-oriented fashion. For complex cognitive skills, such as clinical reasoning, the process itself is often more important then the end result, especially during learning phase. We have developed a tool that can be integrated into VP systems to specifically support the clinical reasoning process and provide both, outcome- and process-oriented feedback.

Novel Method for Storyboarding Biomedical Videos for Medical Informatics
Abstract: 
We propose a novel method for developing static storyboard for video clips included with biomedical research literature. The technique uses both visual and audio content in the video to select candidate key frames for the storyboard. From the visual channel, the intra-frames are extracted using FFmpeg tool. IBM Watson speech-to-text service is used to extract words from the audio channel, from which clinically significant concepts (key concepts) are identified using the U.S. National Library of Medicine‘s Repository for Informed Decision Making (RIDEM) service.

A Proposed Learner Activity Taxonomy and a Framework for Analysing Learner Engagement versus Performance using Big Educational Data
Abstract: 
The inclusion of information and communication technologies in Healthcare and Medical Education is a fact nowadays. Furthermore numerous virtual learning environments have been established in order to host both educational material and learner’s online activities. Online modules in a VLE can be designed in very different ways being part of different types of courses, while different models can be used to design the course based on what the creator aims to achieve. Thus, the types and the importance of the different elements of the online course may vary a lot.
