Abstract

OBJECTIVE: This review examines the use of e-learning systems in psychiatric education.

METHOD: The authors review the Instructional System Design process, focusing on ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation). The authors also report on two representative teaching projects, discussing the planning, work, and assessment required.

RESULTS: The basic operations of these education software systems are relatively easy to learn. The real work is the project preparation which precedes software use and final implementation.

CONCLUSIONS: Internet-based learning software is another tool in the educator's armamentarium. Educators must still utilize sound educational pedagogy to create effective learning instruments.
