Abstract

Background: Recent studies indicate a shift in learning styles towards more self-driven methods. These methods have become increasingly important in medical education, resulting in the necessity for creation of more interactive means of learning. As a result, we have created an E-tutorial, aiming to reinforce the learning outcomes of the curriculum via a multi-platform program incorporating various methods of learning. Summary of work: Articulate Storyline 2 was used to create an E-learning program, covering anatomy, histology and imaging of the abdominal organs. We designed the program based on feedback regarding preferred learning styles. We then altered the program during its creation based on user responses. We incorporated a balance of information, diagrams and quizzes into an interactive resource to suit various learning styles of students. Summary of results: This is a pilot study prioritising user feedback in the creation of an educational resource. Peer feedback was collected from 29 students at a crucial early-stage in development and modified based on further feedback. The end product will be subject to an end-user evaluation then qualitative and quantitative analysis will be used for future developments. Conclusions: Feedback from 6 students in the initial user evaluations provided valuable feedback in the design and development process. Further feedback allowed for improvement of the program, enabling us to achieve the overall aim of creating a tutorial focusing on the needs of students. Take-home message: Our main focus was to ensure the feedback we received was incorporated fully into the development of our tutorial. This allowed our end-product to be tailored to the needs of users.
