E-Learning in Medical Education: An Experience as a Doctor

Fariha Kauser, Anshoo Agarwal, and Madiha Younas

Abstract—I have created an e learning resource to develop and foster critical thinking skills in dental education. It is an audio podcast created using Mp3 voice recorder. The resource addresses the undergraduate dental students, junior dental faculty. The main aim of introducing this initiative was to facilitate and encourage the dental college to implement the knowledge of critical thinking using deductive reasoning approach. As many patients go unnoticed due to lack of judgemental skills at undergraduate and at faculty level. So, in order to compensate loss and to meet the patients unmet needs, this resource will be of a great help for dental institute and clinics to overcome the problems encountered every day at each outpatient department. I have extensively discussed in article about usability, accessibility, legalities and technical requirement issues related to my resource development. Maintenance, evaluation. Reusability, and stakeholders input also have been explained in depth.

Index Terms—E-learning, medical education, doctor, self-evaluation.
