INTEGRATED ANATOMY E-TUTORIAL DESIGNED BY MEDICAL STUDENTS, COMBINING ARTICULATE STORYLINE 2 WITH IMAGES FROM ANATOMY.TV
Increasing accessibility to a wide variety of anatomy teaching resources online has made learning complicated for students, due to the large quantity, mixed quality and lack of review by professionals. Therefore, we set out to develop a one-stop E-tutorial, which encompasses gross and surface anatomy with clinical applications and relevance highlighted, with content verified by medical and digital professionals.
The University of Glasgow’s medical curriculum was reviewed to identify areas of teaching that required extra tailored resources to aid in areas of complex anatomy. An Anatomy E-tutorial on ‘Hand-and-Wrist’ was created using Articulate Storyline 2 Software. The tutorial we created centered on the use of Anatomy.TV gross anatomical images. In addition, self-captured surface anatomy images and videos using digital-photography were incorporated into the package. Unique features of Articulate Storyline 2 were utilised to ensure the users remained engaged throughout the E-Tutorial.
We successfully created a fully interactive anatomy tutorial on hand and wrist anatomy using a novel software package. This was tailored to students undertaking the Glasgow Medical School curriculum, but has relevance to all those who need to obtain an in-depth knowledge of hand and wrist anatomy. Student evaluation will be presented on the effectiveness of this type of tool for learning anatomy of this region.
This innovative use of Articulate Storyline 2, developed by students, for students, has created an excellent revision tool bringing together key elements of the medical curriculum in a single, easily accessible format. This will benefit student engagement with a complex area of anatomy.
Produced by students and tailored to the integrated anatomy teaching, this product will prove beneficial for our colleagues and other health professionals alike.
