Akram Jaffar's insight:
The use of online social networks in medical education can remodel and enhance anatomy teaching and learning; one such network is the video-sharing site YouTube. Limited research in the literature exists on the use of YouTube as a platform for anatomy education. The aim of this study is to assess student's perceptions and patterns of usage of this resource, as well as the effectiveness of YouTube videos within a problem-based learning (PBL) curriculum. The study was conducted on 91 second-year medical students for whom video links were suggested throughout the academic year. In addition, the Human Anatomy Education (HAE) Channel was launched on YouTube to support classroom teaching with videos that emphasized applied aspects of anatomy. The results demonstrated that 98% of the students used YouTube as an online information resource, albeit in different frequencies. Out of the 86% who have been to the HAE Channel, 92% agreed/strongly agreed that the channel helped them learn anatomy. The study also reports the popularity of and awareness about using YouTube as a social network as well as in learning. Based on these findings, YouTube can be considered as an effective tool to enhance anatomy instruction if the videos are scrutinized, diversified, and aimed toward course objectives. Faculty of average computer literacy should be enabled to produce videos on their own YouTube channels to support independent learning and integration in a PBL curriculum. The methods described for capturing and editing the videos can be used as a prototype. Anat Sci Educ. © 2012 American Association of Anatomists.

Exploring the use of a facebook page in anatomy education - Jaffar - 2013 - Anatomical Sciences Education - Wiley Online Library

Exploring the use of a facebook page in anatomy education - Jaffar - 2013 - Anatomical Sciences Education - Wiley Online Library | Social networks in education | Scoop.it
Akram Jaffar's insight:
Facebook is the most popular social media site visited by university students on a daily basis. Consequently, Facebook is the logical place to start with for integrating social media technologies into education. This study explores how a faculty-administered Facebook Page can be used to supplement anatomy education beyond the traditional classroom. Observations were made on students' perceptions and effectiveness of using the Page, potential benefits and challenges of such use, and which Insights metrics best reflect user's engagement. The Human Anatomy Education Page was launched on Facebook and incorporated into anatomy resources for 157 medical students during two academic years. Students' use of Facebook and their perceptions of the Page were surveyed. Facebook's “Insights” tool was also used to evaluate Page performance during a period of 600 days. The majority of in-class students had a Facebook account which they adopted in education. Most students perceived Human Anatomy Education Page as effective in contributing to learning and favored “self-assessment” posts. The majority of students agreed that Facebook could be a suitable learning environment. The “Insights” tool revealed globally distributed fans with considerable Page interactions. The use of a faculty-administered Facebook Page provided a venue to enhance classroom teaching without intruding into students' social life. A wider educational use of Facebook should be adopted not only because students are embracing its use, but for its inherent potentials in boosting learning. The “Insights” metrics analyzed in this study might be helpful when establishing and evaluating the performance of education-oriented Facebook Pages.

Akram Jaffar's insight:
Human Anatomy Education Channel supports classroom teaching with videos that emphasize applied aspects of anatomy including cross-sectional, imaging, surgical, clinical, developmental, and surface anatomy. The Channel was researched and the analysis was published in: Jaffar AA. 2012. YouTube: An emerging tool in anatomy education. Anat Sci Ed. 5(3):158-164. doi: 10.1002/ase.1268 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22383096 Human Anatomy Education Page on Facebook supplements the Channel. The videos are captured from cadaveric dissection, plastinated specimens and sections, plastic models, bones, radiographs, PowerPoint presentations, histology photomicrographs, and surgical operations both open and laparoscopic. Some self-assessment videos are provided in the form of a steeplechase exam in which answers and explanations are provided by hovering the pointer over a highlighted area. Feedback is highly appreciated from channel viewers.
