Online lesson and site examples

Here are some mostly-Edinburgh examples of lessons. Further down, sites

Online lessons

  • Pathologia has a series of lessons on pathological topics (open access). It is intended as a replacement for the historic EROS-based PathCal series of around 200 lessons (see below). WordPress. Sample pages:
    • Infarction – a background-science lesson for Y1 MBChB, but reusable in other contexts. Text and images with short quiz Qs. Not very UoE-branded.
    • Normal healing, regeneration and scarring – uses a variety of quiz Q types at the end to check learning.
  • More WordPress examples:
  • Standard webpages -for example Jamie Davies teaching in MBChB Year 2 – plain webpages, podcasts.
  • Ancient :
    •  PathCal (UoE EASE login required) – created on EROS, an easy-to-author CAL (Computer-Aided Learning) platform on which Edinburgh pathologist Dr Sandy Reid wrote or instigated the writing of almost 200 CALs – useful to look back on these. Very successful in their day, though many require updating or retiring, and probably rewrites and migration – the format is long and clicky. See also…
    •    PathCAL (older, external version); an older set of the same for external users. Has not been updated at all for a long while. Can use UoE or other institutional login.

Presenting lessons to make curricula

  • OpenMed gives an example of a possible approach to this. It references only open-access, externally held sites though.
