uAlberta med students showcase talents on YouTube

March 16, 2008

Medical students at the University of Alberta created a popular online hip-hop video as a study aid.  "Diagnosis Wenckebach" was created collaboratively by the students using Homer, a new online learning system.  Homer allows students to access their schedules, lecture notes, slides, online libraries and journal articles, as well as their campus email, Facebook and other resources.  Homer allows for more student-submitted and peer-policed content than Blackboard, including quizzes, questions and study tips.  The Chronicle of Higher Education (Subscription Required) | Diagnosis Wenckebach on YouTube | The Gateway (Student Newspaper)
