Maastricht University General Practitioner (GP) training program is the stepping stone for any doctor who has completed their fundamental medical training. Within their program they focus a lot on using digitalized student learning processes. This is done through coaching and evaluation using video observation and feedback.

The problem

Due to the sensitive information recorded in the training videos Maastricht University was looking for a safe, robust and closed system. Additionally, this system should allow them to upload, share, and comment upon the uploaded videos.

Before implementing Videolab, the university was using physical data carriers that made the process expensive, slow, prone to human error and most importantly insecure. Moreover the process in place required a certified courier to transport the USB sticks from the GP to the lecturer and back. This made the process not only slow but also for scaling. Therefore, this procedure tampered the ability of the university to use digitalized student learning processes.

Maastricht University was looking for a solution that is highly automated, reliable, fast in its upload speed, easy to use for students and lecturers, and available across the whole university.

“We were looking for a safe way to digitally exchange material between lecturers and GPs without requiring active intervention from our organization at each step.”

The solution

Maastricht University worked along with Codific to integrate Videolab to digitize the process. This overall operating costs by eliminating the need for physical data carries and couriers. This allowed the university to have more affordable and efficient digitalized student learning processes.

Ramona G., professor at the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, is working on streamlining the processes of secure and easy video sharing in Maastricht’s GP training. She was quite excited to share with us that the system is quite intuitive thus requiring no training in order to use.

“Exchanging recordings is fast and safe, requiring the minimal amount of steps. There is also a very practical feature to tag a moment in the recording and annotate feedback.”

Recently, the University of Maastricht chose Codific in a public tender to increase the use of Videolab and Cloudcontrol in it’s organisation. This new deployment will be used much wider across the organization for different training and simulation purposes, as well as being deeply embedded in the skillslab eliminating the need for expensive recording and debriefing hardware. Once again, Codific is helping Maastricht to improve its digitalized student learning.
