Award Report – Web-based Educational Tutorial Development
The Schaffer Library of Health Sciences used the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Middle Atlantic Region Small Project Grant Award to fund the purchase of Adobe Captivate and Flash software. These products were used to create interactive web-based tutorials for third year medical students in the Family Medicine Clerkship.
Three tutorials demonstrate how students must participate in the editorial process of a daily news service, Physician’s First Watch. Each student is required to submit one newsworthy pitch and sign up for PFW conference calls. A fourth tutorial teaches students how to use Sakai’s wiki tool and the fifth tutorial teaches RRS technology.
