Role-Play is one of the key instructional methods to engage learners in procedural and action learning as well as a method for assessment of competence. The role-play allows learners to rehearse and manage the learning through reinforcement and reviews (personal, peer and/or tutor).
At present, the role-play is recorded and uploaded into a system developed by ICE. This current system allows recorded videos (role-play) to be uploaded to the dedicated server, assigned to appropriate standards of comparison (e.g. sales protocol). Thereafter, the task to review the video is done manually and assigned to the role-play learner(s), peers and respective tutors. The review can be subject to biases, as learners tend to hold personal views of fellow learners in the role-play, giving a non-objective appraisal. Similarly, the tutor, though more impartial, will succumb to fatigue after reviewing many videos and as a result either grading them more strictly or less as he/she reviews them.
The seeker envisages a learning innovation that will help to:
The solution shall be able to run on a laptop (to upload the video and effect the automated evaluation of the uploaded video).
Learners shall be able to use their own mobile devices (e.g. mobile phones) to upload the role-play video from anywhere, as long as there is Internet access (or even from their mobile data plan).
The solution shall be able to be hosted on cloud or on the school’s onsite servers.
The solution shall conform to data security best practices to prevent unauthorized access or intrusion.
The solution shall consist of a mobile app solution.
A solution that is capable of:
A solution that may be optimised for mobile devices or apps based would be preferred.
