Learning by playing
Playful learning during education or at the workplace is fun and learning turns into a positive experience. The „Medical Quiz“ supports learning by playing quizzes. The idea is to support nurses, currently in an education to become a nurse on a stroke unit as well as to motivate nurses already working at a stroke unit to refresh their knowledge. Four different types of quizzes were implemented, one “Quiz against time” and three quizzes consisting of a different number of questions – depending on how much time the current user has. Besides specific questions on relevant topics all quizzes are enriched with reflective questions, which motivate the player to think again about the currently gained knowledge and to deepen the learning success.
The current implementation of the Medical Quiz is a representative example of how work-related facts can be provided to nurses to become a specialist in their area. The “Medical Quiz” can be adapted to each specific field, where professional knowledge should be communicated in a playful way. Beside multiple choice and single choice questions, various other question types can be selected.
