Improving learning of anatomy with reusable learning objects
IntroductionThe use of modern educational technologies is useful for learning, durability, sociability, and upgrading professionalism. The aim of this study was evaluating the effect of reusable learning objects on improving learning of anatomy.
MethodsThis was a quasi-experimental study. Fourteen (reusable learning objects) RLO from different parts of anatomy of human body including thorax, abdomen, and pelvis were prepared for medical student in Yasuj University of Medical Sciences in 2009. The length of the time for RLO was between 11-22 min. Because their capacities were low, so they were easy to use with cell phone or MP4. These materials were available to the students before the classes. The mean scores of students in anatomy of human body group were compared to the medical students who were not used this method and entered the university in 2008. A questionnaire was designed by the researcher to evaluate the effect of RLO and on, content, interest and motivation, participation, preparation and attitude.
ResultThe mean scores of anatomy of human body of medical student who were entered the university in 2009 have been increased compare to the students in 2008, but this difference was not significant. Based on the questionnaire data, it was shown that the RLO had a positive effect on improving learning anatomy of human body (75.5%) and the effective relationship (60.6%). The students were interested in using RLO (74.6%), some students (54.2%) believed that this method should be replaced by lecture.
ConclusionThe use of RLO could promote interests and effective communication among the students and led to increasing self-learning motivation.
