How does it work?
Skillsetter is based on over 30 years of research by our Chief Scientist Dr. Bruce Wampold of the University of Wisconsin. Our interactive system uses the science of deliberate practice to improve effectiveness and outcomes of interactions between people. Here's how it works:
- The student is shown a brief pre-recorded video of an actor portraying a relevant interaction, such as a client in therapy.
- Using a web camera, the student records a response to the video as if in the room with the person.
- The system then gives the student a set of guided feedback questions and an opportunity to re-record the response. The student then submits this video for further evaluation by the course instructor or teaching assistant.
How large is Skillsetter's library of videos?
Because Skillsetter regularly adds more videos to its library, the number will always grow. Skillsetter aims to provide users with videos that are as diverse as possible in terms of cultural background, demographics, and presenting conditions, and situations.
