Multimedia Support of Medical Education Utilizing On-Line Archive of Video Lectures

Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 606)


Recent trends in higher education utilize advances of information and communication technologies and web services more intensively than ever to support distance education forms. The reasons raised mainly because of the needs to minimize working load of teachers, to create reusable teaching resources and to satisfy students requirements to obtain electronic and on-line available study materials. Similarly to other branches, we applied such techniques to offer our students but also to all interested persons the latest knowledge from the area of infectious diseases, their prevention and treatment. Therefore, we realized specialized and scientific sessions that were live streamed, archived and shared through video gallery on our faculty portal.
