Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The aim of this article is to describe the repurposing of classroom video surveillance and on-screen archives (RCVSOSA) model, which is an innovative, technologyenabled approach to continuing education in nursing. The RCVSOSA model leverages network Internet-protocol, high-defi nition surveillance cameras to record videos of classroom lectures that can be automatically uploaded to the Internet or converted to DVD, either in their entirety or as content-specifi c modules, with the production work embedded in the technology. The proposed model supports health care continuing education through the use of online assessments for focused education modules, access to archived online recordings and DVD training courses, voice-to-text transcripts, and possibly continuing education modules that may be translated into multiple languages. Potential benefi ts of this model include increased access to educational modules for students, instant authorship, and fi nancial compensation for instructors and their respective organizations.
