Access from EThOS:
In 2004 a modular learning resource housed in a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) was developed at Bristol University to facilitate the academic orthodontic training for Specialist Registrars. The VLE was built in an e-education platform (Blackboard) which provides products that enable universities, schools, and corporations to host their classes on the World Wide Web. The VLE contains communication tools, course documents, learning resources and links to related resources. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether this new learning resource has reduced travel commitments for trainees and demands on academic staff and to investigate other effects of this learning resource on orthodontic training.
