SIMONETTO, Raúl et al. Development and Implementation of a Virtual Campus to support Diagnostic and Therapeutic Imaging Course. Rev. argent. radiol. [online]. 2011, vol.75, n.1, pp.49-52. ISSN 1852-9992.

Aim: To analyze the impact of didactic tools on virtual environments to support the Diagnostic and Therapeutic Imaging (T & I) course at the National La Plata University (School of Medical Sciences). We evaluated the commitment of students in comparison with their interest in extra classroom activities offered in a similar period. Material and methods: We developed and implemented a Virtual Campus using various programs to continuously create, organize, deliver, update and improve the teaching material. The project was developed in thirty days, after which the site was made available to the general public. The study sample consisted of 700 students, and the analysis was performed from October 1st, 2007 to September 30th, 2008. Results: A high adherence to the use of this new teaching tool was observed, reaching 82% of the students over the study period, compared to the low number of participants in the conventional approaches, who failed to exceed 40%. Conclusion: The implementation of an educational tool based on a Virtual Campus was associated with a rapid and high degree of voluntary student participation, compared with conventional activities offered by the same group of teachers.
