The free course is designed for students, teachers, and parents to show them how to treat concussions.
1 out of 5 high school athletes will receive a sport-related concussion. However, 3 out of 5 high school students don’t report the issue often enough because they don’t recognise the signs. With proper care, the athlete can usually recover from a concussion within ten days. If the concussion goes untreated, it can have long-lasting physical and emotional effects
Crashcourse was developed to teach athletes, parents, officials, and coaches about how to identify and manage concussions. The engaging Virtual Reality (VR) course was designed with youth in mind and uses various strategies to increase knowledge retention. It covers multiple sports, uses famous athletes to teach the lessons, and includes interactive elements.
The course explains what happens to the brain during and after a concussion. This includes what symptoms to look for, and what to do if you or someone else has a concussion. Through immersive virtual reality education, the chances of long-term effects from a concussion are reduced. The product is currently available for free download.
