Introduction to Computer Aided Learning (CAL)
It is a new way to learn medicine. The programs run on ordinary PCs and provide an interactive learning environment. Pages of text are displayed with graphic images, sound, and in some cases video clips. Many of the packages not only give you information to learn but can also test your knowledge and provide feedback on the quality of the answer given. CAL is a way of learning, not a computer package. One of the big advantages of CAL is that it allows you to proceed at your own pace and make as many mistakes as you like - all without the pressure of a tutor hanging over your shoulder. The feedback provided by the package on your progress helps identify your weaknesses.
Some of the examples of packages available are:
1. Reflex control of Blood Pressure
2. DNA Fingerprinting Lab
3. Inflammation – Pharmacology
The amount of time you should spend using CAL is difficult to decide as everyone has different ways of learning. Some modules use CAL programs as part of the course work.
