We attended the Technology Enhanced Learning “pre-conference”. Interesting talks and discussions on the “near future” of Technology Enhanced Learning in Medical Education.
E-learning and Technology Enhanced Learning featured a lot at the main conference itself. There was much emphasis on cutting edge areas such as AI and Virtual Reality. Our feeling is that this will take a long time to get to the mainstream of medical education – if it ever does. In the meantime medical educators are lacking the tools to get engaging content online in sufficient volume. This needs to be an everyday activity and educators will need Authoring Systems such as Causeway to achieve this.
