The Jerusalem Post — The ninth conference on digital learning technologies at HIT — Holon Institute of Technology was held this year with the understanding that a period of global crisis can also be an opportunity to improve processes and maximise business profits.
About 20 leading companies and organizations in the Israeli market participated in a competition at the conference, including Isracard, the Civil Service Commission, Migdal Insurance, Maccabi Health Services, Tnuva, Tel Aviv University, Israel Railways, AppsFlyer, and Magen David Adom.
Magen David Adom won first place.
The development and implementation team created a virtual reality (VR) training solution for paramedics. The team was led by Snir Feinstein, a paramedic and member of MDA’s online training unit and a student at HIT.
“Our goal is to make emergency medicine studies accessible at the paramedic level for MDA’s mobile intensive care unit volunteers,” said Snir. “This technology allows them to practice scenarios and experience saving lives. The game-style platform makes the learning experience fun, interesting, fast, and challenging.”
