Talk:Medicine 2010 - Statistics
Presenting Content Online
For several years now I have been providing both Medicine and Science undergraduates with web-based online educational materials. I would like to talk today about the use of the new online lecture and practical pages designed for Medicine in 2010. Previously, this content was provided as a mix of powerpoint presentations and online website pages. The current content has been prepared to demonstrate how freely available software, that is familiar to students, can be applied the changing online learning environment. The practical classes also included models and specimens permanently on display in the Wallace Wurth (room 106/108) Embryology Museum and computer laboratory.
This is the first time these classes have been prepared here for student use. In future cycles students will also have the ability provide feedback, prepare embryology projects and to add and edit their own individual pages to compile their embryology content for later use and revision. Currently page content can only be edited by registered users, the student unipass system can be used control student registration. An equivalent undergraduate embryology Science (ANAT2341) course has been used online since 2009. Lecture material can be prepared and presented directly from online pages, students can also print a simplified view for reference during the lecture and revision. Furthermore, students in this science course can also log-in and have prepared collaborative group projects as part of their final course assessment. The current site was presented at the MedEd L&T Forum 2009 demonstrating a student ILP Educational project on Cardiac Embryology.
The initial page view census date for the data shown below was 22 June 2010.
