Background: Innovations in modern technologies allow students access to educational resources in very different ways to traditional teaching methodologies. As such, and as part of a Student Selected Component, we created an e- tutorial on the arteries of the human body, linked into learning objectives of the Glasgow medical curriculum. Summary of Work: An interactive e-tutorial on the arterial supply of the human body was created using Adobe Captivate 9. The e-tutorial details the arterial supply of the body in anatomical regions. Interactivity is incorporated as quizzes, clinical items, and detailed anatomy for early stage medical training. Summary of Results: The e-tutorial was designed by students, for students as a pilot study. We shall present the ongoing evaluation from student users from pre-and post-evaluation surveys. The methodology of how to create an e-tutorial will also be discussed. Discussion: The unique feature of this project is that the anatomical material is validated, and has involved students creating it for their peers. A constructivist approach has also been adopted, with students as co-creators of the educational and training materials, and enhances digital skills. Conclusion: The interactivity of e-tutorials allows an alternative teaching and learning method to lectures, books and dissections. The e-tutorial can be used in places where accessibility, or use of traditional resources may be challenging. The resource is easy to use and tailored to target students. Take-home Message: The e-tutorial created is a valuable teaching resource created for students, made accessible and user friendly for all. The resource can be used as both a teaching resource or a learning resource.
