eLearning in health sciences
eLearning refers to the use of ICT for learning. It can be used to improve the quality of education, to increase accessibility for geographically isolated persons or those who have poor local learning facilities, and to make new and innovative forms of education potentially available to all. It is increasingly used for training health sciences students and for the ongoing development of health professionals.
The following questions look at the application of eLearning for two main target groups including health sciences students and health care professionals.
Please note that these questions refer to the use of ICT for learning and should not be confused with those in Section 1 which are about the training of health sciences students and professionals in the use of ICT in health.
