Brewster, S.A., Montgomery Masters, M., Glendye, A., Kriz, N., and Reid, S. (2000) Haptic feedback in the training of veterinary students. In: 12th World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia and Telecommunications, 26 June - 1 July 2000, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
This paper reports on an initial study into the use of haptic (or touch) technology in the training of veterinary students. One major problem faced in veterinary education is that animals can be harmed by inexperienced students who are trying to learn the skills they need. The aim of the work described here is to provide haptic models to simulate internal examinations of horses so that students can learn the basic skills required on computer and then transfer to real animals with much less risk of doing them injury.
