EL SHARABY, Ashraf A; ALSAFY, Mohamed A. M  and  EL-GENDY, Samir A.A. Equine Anatomedia: Development, Integration and Evaluation of an E-Learning Resource in Applied Veterinary Anatomy. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.4, pp.1577-1584. ISSN 0717-9502.

In Egypt, there is a growing movement to encourage veterinary student-centered learning using the most up to date educational technologies. This paper focuses on a computer-facilitated learning program "Equine Anatomedia", which comprises now two modules (head and digit) fully integrated with the applied anatomy curriculum at Alexandria and Damanhour Universities. The educational design of this program allows students and clinicians to explore anatomical concepts, principles and procedure guidelines in a manner more suited to their individual learning needs than traditional methods. The program comprises over 300 high quality images and diagrams, audio and video clips as well as animated graphics with colored keys highlighting the anatomical features. Staff and student feedback indicates that Equine Anatomedia is an effective and engaging learning tool which helps students to develop their knowledge in anatomy and to appreciate its relevance in clinical situations. In addition, it encourages student-staff interaction and is a useful tool in overcoming the challenges of limited resources and increasing numbers of students.
