Experiences with SVC projects
A web based course in medical Embryology:"Well thought out"
Nils Corson

(Cont. 2, Nils Corson)

Integration into teaching
"There was an introduction to web-based training with questionnaires to complete before and after the course. We dealt with the subject for about three or four months. Two hours a week were set aside for self-study on the Net, and we had a lecture in addition. This was usually a summary of the subject-matter we were expected to work with on screen. Then, twice a week, we were able to put questions to the professor and the head of the Fribourg Histological Institute in a chat session. The chat was held in two languages, sometimes even three, since the head of the Histological Institute also speaks Italian. There was also a forum where we could put down questions, which were answered by the professor, outside experts or fellow-students in one or two days. In our class, which numbered 120 students to begin with, there soon emerged a hard core of about 15 forum visitors. People who couldn’t face the forum had the opportunity to send an email to the professor personally.”
