This is a short video made by Silvereye Films to promote Monash University Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. The final segment features Pharmatopia, an interactive 3d simulated environment we (Oztron) have developed.
The faculty is leading the way in worldwide teaching innovation with the development of a virtual hi-tech teaching tool that is being enthusiastically adopted by leading pharmacy schools from around the globe.
Pharmatopia is an island on a virtual world. Monash is leading the Pharmatopia project which, as the name suggests, aims to develop a pharmacy education ‘oasis’ through the development of interactive teaching and learning tools.
There are currently 10 schools of pharmacy around the world involved in the project which is based on a shared practice model – each school contributes towards the development of a teaching tool and shares access with other members.
There is no cost to participate in the project or to access the teaching modules. Each participating university covers the cost of the development of their own teaching module and also retains the IP for their own project.
