Clinical simulation experiences are captured via a video capture system which can viewed anywhere on campus in both real time and from previously recorded experiences, which provides the opportunity to share the benefits of simulation with larger audiences.

The LTRC is supported by an Executive Director, Director of Instructional Technology, Learning Resource Center Specialist, Healthcare Simulation Technician, Instructional Technology Specialist, graduate teaching assistants and student workers.
