Wednesday, March 28 3:00 PM-4:00 PM
Collaborative nursing teaching and learning was a difficulty in classroom as well as online teaching settings at University of Hawaii at Hilo. Due to students’ residential geographical restrictions among the different islands in the State of Hawaii. The School of Nursing at University of Hawaii at Hilo started to adopt the Cyber-CANOE system for improving the effectiveness of group collaborative teaching and learning since 2017. Cyber-CANOE is an acronym for Collaborative Analytics Navigation and Observation Environment in Cyber. Dr. Jason Leigh, a co-inventor of the CAVE2 virtual reality environment, invented this group collaborative system. With Dr. Leigh’s supervision, University of Hawaii System has established multiple Cyber-CANOE among its major campus, which made the group collaborative teaching and learning possible. This paper describes how Cyber-CANOE has been established and utilized in teaching nursing courses at the University of Hawaii at Hilo.
