Week 08: Review

Hi Group Week 8,

I thought it was interesting and fitting that you chose to focus on cloud-based learning in the medical field. The melding of education and healthcare is a fast-growing trend. An example is the MEd in Health Sciences Education program at the U of Alberta that was developed collaboratively between the education and health science faculties to address the needs of health professionals and medical faculty to enhance their teaching and educational research skills. Exposure to new technologies used in teaching, research and practice, like simulations, digital media in health care, and cloud learning environments are very important indeed. I enjoyed using even though I found that it had its limitations. It was great for brainstorming, but less ideal for more involved group discussions. I was not aware of so many cloud-based tools until I participated in your group survey and would love to check out some of them. Excellent work – thanks!
