OPENPediatrics™ is an open-access, online learning platform designed for healthcare professionals. Accessed by healthcare professionals in every country worldwide, we publish peer-reviewed content incorporating the best practices in adult learning and multimedia design. Our team of videographers, medical illustrators, graphic designers, and technology specialists create videos, courses, podcasts, and screen-based simulators for multidisciplinary healthcare professionals. Our research aims include how to make online learning more effective, more efficient, and more engaging.
An example of one of our research activities includes a study of our mechanical ventilation simulator showing that residents could learn as much from using the simulator as they did during a month in the pediatric intensive care unit, that they retained more knowledge from the simulator and that they learned best when using the simulator before their clinical rotation.
