Abstract

This paper describes the transformation of a traditional medical curricula into a
problem-based learning technology-enhanced educational setting. The use of Information
Technology (IT) is an important feature of the new curriculum. Case-based medical problems
are delivered to students in a tutorial setting via TopClass over the Web. Additional learning
resources such as Web sites, image banks, practical experimental simulations, self-assessment
tests, Shockwave learning modules and multimedia modules are also accessed via
the computer. This paper outlines the critical attributes of this educational context, and then
discusses the web-based and computer facilitated learning (CFL) based aspects of the
curriculum.
