Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC’s)
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC’s) are in the news. Making lecture recordings freely available online is useful to students searching for information, and is an excellent way for academic providers to market their high quality degree courses.
The next step up from MOOC’s is for academic institutions to offer carefully structured online courses where students’ knowledge can be assessed by the completion of multi-choice questionnaires to obtain learning credits, (eg, CME). Such courses can provide an excellent resource for those unable, through geographic, financial or professional pressures, to participate in formal academic degree programmes.
MIS is currently working with Imperial College on a Multi-Media Guide to Allergy - Series 2 which will be available to clinicians around the World, to be launched this autumn. We are excited to be taking medical education forward in an M-learning format that will be easily accessible from mobile devices, facilitating study at times and venues convenient to each student.
