The VERBL online resource has been created as a project under the Flexible Learning Framework.
The VERBL online resource suggests ways immersive technologies, such as virtual worlds, can be implemented in risk-based learning in the future. It also includes three case studies that revolve around learning in the disability, alcohol and other drugs, and mental health sectors.
The project particularly focused on psychological, behavioural and emotional risks which are difficult to achieve within the classroom environment, as is assessing learners' management and coping skills.
Mr Beach said one of the key benefits of the project was the development of the VERBL model, which provides a mechanism for organisations and teachers to evaluate what would be suitable competencies to fit within immersive e-learning environments.
Consider some of the possibilities of this tool and remember Flexible Learning Framework Funding is coming up again in February.
