Title Case-based e-learning in occupational medicine - The NetWoRM project in Germany
Bibliographic information 2006, Vol.13, No.1, p.93-98. Illus. 14 ref.
Internet access Case-based_e-learning.pdf [in English]
Abstract The aim of the NetWoRM Project is the development, evaluation and implementation of a case-based e-learning tool for occupational medicine to increase knowledge in clinical aspects of occupational medicine. To date, 19 e-learning cases have been developed. Cases were validated by two experts and evaluated by users. This article presents the results of the user evaluations at three German medical schools. Of 557 medical students registered for the online course, 377 answered the online evaluation form. Depending on the case, the median time spent on a case ranged from 25-43 minutes. The level of knowledge required to work on the cases was rated high. This was supported by the fact that on median only 47-71% of the questions were answered correctly. Cases focusing on occupational health problems such as needle stick injuries were rated highest. Students enjoyed working on e-learning cases as a complement to traditional teaching.
