Tele-training is live remote training, carried out from a biomedical environment, and received by students and teachers in health education centers. This activity uses the HoloLens device, which makes it possible to use mixed reality, a particularly interesting tool because it allows the use of 3D or 2D holographs that can be “placed” in the space where the training activity takes place.
Below is an example of a tele-training session of an immunohistochemistry technique performed with HoloLens 1 from Bioaraba (Vitoria-Gasteiz, Basque Country).
HoloLens glasses offer a number of substantial advantages over traditional video conferencing:
Hologram support is particularly useful in this type of activity as the speaker can have accessible multimedia elements to assist in the explanations.
The students can ask questions or take notes directly as the HoloLens device has headphones through which the speaker listens.
It allows the speaker to move untethered as it is a stand-alone device.
The speaker’s vision is what the students see, so for environments where space is limited, it is an ideal tool.
In a simple way, you can access Web Resources that may be useful at the time of e-learning.
Since the activity can be recorded, a video is generated as a resource for later viewing.
The option for several groups to receive training at the same time offers the possibility of creating teaching-learning activities appropriate to current emerging methodologies.
