Digital Pathology

We were able to achieve great results using the Smart Sparrow Platform with our in-house technical people. It will have wide application across Medicine at Monash University with capacity to expand to other universities.

In 2013, Arizona State University (ASU) astrobiologist Ariel Anbar launched the university’s now flagship “smart course” in science—Habitable Worlds. Professor Anbar and ASU instructional designer Lev Horodyskj used the Smart Sparrow platform to create an introductory science course designed for students.

A suite of 26 digital pathology quizzes with simple multiple choice questions were upgraded from Blackboard to the Adaptive eLearning Platform and now include an updated intelligent adaptive feedback as well as student and expert feedback on each case. These Adaptive Tutorials are being used to teach over 600 third year medicine students in Australia and Malaysia on a weekly basis.
