In analysing the results, the stereoscopic VR video method had some problems and therefore a decision was made to use immersive 2D VR video which showed promise out performing the traditional method on all indicators, however the study size of (n=20) split across the interventions is under powered. Therefore, using the mean results of the usability pilot study it has been identified that a second round study should occur with an approximate sample size (~n=140) with participants to achieve greater understanding of the use of the VR intervention across two university campuses, Bond University and James Cook University in Queensland. This will also address usability issues with the proposed method outlined in the report. In this usability pilot study we aim to explore the pedagogical possibilities of a mobile stereoscopic VR video application to delivery spatial content on treating snake bite through the use of the Rescue Swag – Smart First Aid Kit - Snake Bite Indicator Bandage. The aim is to guide the user in learning and applying first aid correctly improving familiarisation with the skill and general confidence. In particular we want to answer the research question: “Can mobile stereoscopic VR video improve learner familiarisation and skills compared with traditional 2D image delivery in treating snake bite?”
