For the validation (pilot trials) of the final release of the EASIER project, a trial with external end users has been carried out. An online webinar was organized on December 17th, 2020 to recruit online participants even beyond the direct contact of clinical partners. Each participant has taken part in the validation of one or more case studies, depending on their particular profile. Users have tested the EASIER platform and have been requested to complete a questionnaire that comprises sets of questions to address:
1. Usability validation
2. Functionality validation
3. User’s perception and satisfaction
4. Pedagogical model validation
The results were overall positive! In terms of the Assessment Module of the EASIER LMS that the SEIT lab has developed, most participants (53%) have stated that its functionalities provide feedback in a meaningful manner, facilitating its comprehension in relation to the acquisition of surgical skills.
