Medicine 2010 - Statistics
|The following information and preliminary statistical information relates to the use of the new online lecture and practical pages designed for Embryology in Medicine for 2010.
Previously, this content was provided as a mix of Powerpoint presentations and online website pages. The website, online since 1997 and used by many external universities, is a comprehensive Embryology resource covering additional topics outside the current course.
Questionnaire, email and in-class feedback from students indicated that they found the online format very useful in their studies and readily available. There were also some common issues described by the students and observed during the practical classes. Firstly, the website had grown complicated and was now difficult to navigate and students could easily "loose their way". Secondly, embryology content contained many new and unique terms for the students and as these structures changed, so too did the descriptive terminology.
This is the first time these classes have been prepared here for medical student use. Note that the practical classes also included models and specimens permanently on display and accessible in the Wallace Wurth (106/108) Embryology Museum and computer laboratory space.
The current content has been prepared to demonstrate how freely available software, that is familiar to students, can be applied to the changing online learning environment. The platform is extremely stable, flexible and various media formats can be uploaded and linked (images, graphs, movies, animations, audio and quizzes). In addition, several structural changes have been applied to resolve the earlier described issues.
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. Content can be controlled by allowing only registered users editing rights and the student unipass system can be used control student registration. The software also maintains a complete history of all page changes and page views (analysed below).

An equivalent Science (ANAT2341) undergraduate embryology course has been used online since 2009. Lecture material can be prepared and presented directly from an online page. 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.
