Screen cards

« Back to Glossary Index

Screen cards are units of information presented at once to the user in unfolding stories of virtual patients. The learner gets first a portion of information about the patient situation, is requested to reflect on the presented situation and after that is allowed to move to the next stage where more information is presented, and so forth. They would correspond to slides in PowerPoint presentations or printouts given to students in a problem-based learning session. Screen cards can also contain multimedia resources, interactive exercises (e.g. multiple choice questions), and expert comments.
