Shared Mode for PeriopSim VR
The advantage of the Shared mode is that you can switch quickly between learners whilst using PeriopSim VR and still be able to track your learners' individual progress. The sharing of devices is often used in situations where the devices are either available in common access areas, libraries, teaching rooms, simulation labs, or in a classroom setting. It also allows the learners to login without needing to have access to Internet/Wi-Fi.
- Open the PeriopSim App
- Log into your account as an Educator.
- Enter shared mode by selecting "Configure Shared Mode"
- Select the group of learners who are in the session
- This will bring up your learners in your group
- A learner can then click on their name and enter their 4 digit pin number
- Once a learner has completed a module they can come back to the group and the second learner can repeat the process.
- On completion of the session, you will need to logout of shared mode.
Shared Mode for PeriopSim / PeriopSim VR
If learners are arranged into groups within the User Management tab in the PeriopSim Experience Portal, the educator has the option to set up Shared Devices.
In this case the Educator logs into the PeriopSim App on the shared device, selects "Configure Shared Mode" and then selects a group of students to use that particular device. The "Configure Shared Mode" option only appears when an account Educator logs in
Once the Educator selects the Shared Mode group the learners can then select their name from the authorized list of users. Learners will then enter the unique 4-digit PIN number they created during their account creation, or their educator has assigned to them. If a learner can not remember the PIN they created, Educators can simply go to that Learners account profile and reset the 4-digit PIN
The device stays in Shared mode and can only be used by that Group of students until an account Educator turns off Shared mode.
While in Shared mode the individual students have the same educational experience as a student logging in individually. In fact, students who are registered in an account can also login as an individual user on their own device and access the same subscribed account. Shared mode only applies to Educator controlled devices.
