PCS is thrilled to announce that PCS Spark now supports integrating with learning management systems (LMS) such as Canvas through the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) framework.

This integration will make it easier than ever for educators to incorporate virtual simulated patients into their courses and provide students with interactive, case-based learning experiences. With LTI, educators can seamlessly integrate PCS Spark virtual patients into their existing course materials and workflows, streamlining the learning experience for both educators and students.

PCS Spark virtual patients offer students the opportunity to engage in realistic, interactive scenarios that challenge their critical thinking skills and decision-making abilities. Each patient presents a unique set of symptoms and challenges, allowing students to develop their clinical reasoning skills in a safe, low-stakes environment.

By integrating with Canvas and other LMS platforms, educators can easily assign virtual patients to students, track their progress and performance, and incorporate virtual patient data into grading and assessment. Additionally, educators can use PCS Spark’s detailed analytics to identify areas where students may be struggling and adapt their teaching accordingly.

With this new integration, PCS Spark virtual patients offer even more flexibility for educators to deliver high-quality, interactive learning experiences to their students. We’re excited to continue to innovate and support educators in their efforts to prepare the next generation of healthcare professionals.
