The Medical University of Graz (MUG) uses MicroLearning to strengthen and innovate its entire undergraduate curriculum. MUG is a pioneer in technology enhanced learning with its VIrtual Medical Campus since more than 15 years.
More than 8.000 knowledge cards in 334 lessons and 102 courses have been developed in less than six months. Topics include all fields including histology, embryology, pharmacology, thoracic surgery, with demo lessons in a variety of other disciplines. Particular emphasis was placed on propositional learning cards in a multiple true-false format.
A first research paper reports early results from the roll out and the impact on student learning. The complete MicroLearning content is scheduled to go online in the winter term 2017/18.
