Read all about it! “Teaching medical and health sciences students to develop ePosters with Learning Toolbox”. Nearly 200 students in a University in Oman were taught how to produce ePosters using Learning Toolbox. You can read the research paper, reporting on this study and its evaluation, on MedEdPublish. We love the quote from the first reviewer that “I feel that this paper demonstrates that this [practical ways of using new innovations] is possible and [this paper] should be read by all those in TEL and curriculum planning as well as those involved in conference organisation“.

Happy New Year! To get 2018 off to a good start we have made some great, new updates to the Learning Toolbox. Authors, you can now upload powerpoint presentations to your stack/ePoster and we will automatically convert these to PDF files that are viewable from within Learning Toolbox. Viewers will soon be able to pinch and zoom in/out (within the app) on images that you have uploaded. Domain owners, we have added some new functionality to help you to very easily invite authors to join your domain and start creating stacks/ePosters.
