Insights learned from teaching pathophysiology on the World Wide Web

Document Type



This article describes a one-credit, graduate level pathophysiology module taught using the World Wide Web. Student outcomes are compared to those of students who took the same module in a traditional classroom setting. Although the majority of the graduate students were not Web literate, they became more comfortable with this instructional medium over time. A comparison of the Web-based instruction with the traditional format, both directed by the same instructor, showed no significant differences in student performance on a multiple choice examination.
