The School of Medicine decided to implement a large scale mobile learning initiative in 2012. The e-Learning team set up a working group of about 30 people including academics, administrators and students. The group focused on the assessment of the potential mobile learning implementation from a contextualised and situated learning point of view.

The School of Medicine issued iPads Mini to students in years 5 and 6 of the MBBS course at the beginning of the 2013/14 academic term.

Main learning and teaching objectives:

  • Some sign-off forms (DOPS) will be available electronically on the iPads allowing clinical teachers to assess students and submit the DOPS to the Faculty Education Office electronically, keeping a record on the students’ iPads.
  • Students will be able to participate during lectures using virtual clickers hosted on their iPads.
  • Students will access interactive iBooks for different clinical attachments.
  • Students will be able to receive updates from different sites directly on their iPads providing a direct communication channel with clinical sites.
  • All the course learning materials will be accessed via Blackboard Learn.
  • Students on placements will be able to readily and easily access learning materials and their own notes, and be able to add reflections.
