Using the Intelligent Video Solution (IVS) Software

The Intelligent Video Solution (IVS) application provides video observation and recording software designed for clinical skills training, medical simulation, research, and performance assessment.  IVS is also used by the University to create effective aids for learning across all disciplines. 

Instructions below provide step-by-step instructions for accessing the IVS system, uploading an instructional video, and reviewing your recorded and/or uploaded videos. Students must work with their instructors in order to arrange for an IVS account to be created prior to accessing the software.
