One of the attractive features of Learning Toolbox is its flexibility and the freedom it gives authors to create stacks of resources that they can share and use for different purposes. Whilst our main use case is as an ePoster platform, we are finding a growing number of authors are also using Learning Toolbox within their teaching.
The Medizinische Fakultät at the Universität Duisburg-Essen is one of the pioneers in this area, as they have been using Learning Toolbox to support their medical teaching since early 2018.
They have recently published an interesting paper about this work exploring the acceptance and use of the tool by their students. We’d like to congratulate Stephanie Herbstreit, Daniela Mäker and Cynthia Szalai on this study and we are very interested to see how their use develops further over the next few years. If you are considering using Learning Toolbox within education then we’d encourage you to read their paper.
