Abstract

Computer-based learning has been developed for the beginning medical student and the experienced practitioner, for the lay person and the medical expert. There are many advantages to online and computer-based learning when compared to traditional face-to-face courses and lectures. Information technologies are providing new opportunities for linking medical schools around the world for sharing computer-based learning materials. In this chapter, the authors present examples of actual programs that are being used to support medical education for each of these categories of learners.
