The acceptance of computer assisted learning by medical students



The acceptance of computer assisted learning by medical students



Australian and New Zealand Journal of Surgery 65(8): 610-612



The use of computer assisted learning (CAL) in the medical undergraduate curriculum is increasing. Little is known regarding the acceptability of CAL among medical students. The present study was conducted to investigate the possible anxiety generated by and the acceptability of CAL among medical students. One hundred and twenty-six students completed a questionnaire after using a software package which has been as an adjunct in teaching urology. The present study demonstrates that there was little anxiety experienced by the students when using CAL and furthermore that there was a high level of acceptance for this type of instruction. This is encouraging for medical educators involved in producing multimedia packages for teaching medicine and surgery.
