Please contribute to an eLearning Library in Myanmar

MY-NORTH has built the infrastructure for eLearning in University of Medicine 1, Yangon. We are in the process of developing a library of eLearning lectures which can be accessed in a local intranet.

eLearning lectures

We are interested in lectures in the fields of public health and anatomy for medical students, master- and PhD students. We are also interested in lectures helpful for health personnel in remote areas of Myanmar, both theoretical lectures in public health and more practical lectures that can help health assistants, nurses, midwifes and doctors in their practical daily work.

ELearning lectures should preferably not be longer than 15 minutes. If longer lectures are needed, please divide in shorter chapters.

We accept all common High-quality video formats. However, recommended format is MPEG4 (.mp4) encoded in H.264 format and soundtrack in AAC, Bitrate: 1,5-4Mb/s: Resolution should be: 720p or 1080p.

Quizzes, internet resources, pbl:

We are also interested in questions-answers (quizzes); list of internet resources; problem-based-learning (pbl) texts of relevance for eLearning lectures.
