Background: With increasing availability of a huge variety of resources online for anatomy learning, variability in the quantity and reliability of information makes learning complicated for students. Hence, we created a student-made E-tutorial as a one-stop resource, which integrates gross anatomy, surface anatomy, and clinical relevance, with content verified by teaching staff. Summary of work: Review of the University of Glasgow’s medical curriculum highlighted areas that needed reinforcement. Articulate Storyline software was used to create an Anatomy E-tutorial on ‘Hand-and-Wrist’. High-quality gross anatomical images from Anatomy-TV, and surface anatomy images and videos captured by digital-photography, were our main focus. Interactive features of Articulate Storyline were employed to allow an engaging user-experience. Summary of results: This is a pilot study and end-user evaluation will be conducted to assess the effectiveness of the E-Tutorial. Target end-users are Years 1 and 2 medical students at the University of Glasgow. Results will be presented at the conference. Discussion: Information online is not tailored to the curriculum and are not always verified by experts. Also, due to the lack of required resources online, production of our own videos and images was necessary to address requirements of the curriculum. After end-user evaluation, quantitative and qualitative data will be analysed and presented. Conclusion: This E-Tutorial encompasses various aspects of anatomy teaching, serving as a guide and revision tool. It is a unique attempt at creating an educational resource using Articulate Storyline, which has not been attempted before. Take-home messages: This product will help our colleagues as it is made by students and tailored to the integrated anatomy teaching.
