Game-based learning for Virtual Patients - Multi patients

Tom Werner from Brandon Hall Research has posted an intresting use of Second Life in the training of nursing staff.

The Faculty of Medicine at Imperial College London has developed a learning activity in Second Life (SLurl) for diagnosing and treating virtual patients.
They have five virtual patients suffering from problems such as lung cancer and pneumonia.
You can look at the patient’s chart, talk to the patient, listen to the patient’s breathing, select tests to run, and so forth.
