Keele Active Virtual Environment (KAVE)

Dr. Steve Chapman and colleagues are taking medical education to the next level through their development of a 3-dimensional interactive learning environment for pharmacy students. The KAVE is a physical room where ‘stereoscopic’ visuals are displayed on three walls and the floor, allowing students to ‘pick up’ digital objects, view and move around molecules, and interact with a virtual human body to learn anatomy and physiology. This outstanding technology allows students to be clinically trained in a virtual environment.
The system is being extended to develop 3D online environments using 3D laptop technology, stereoscopic projectors and web browser plugin technology.
