The ASRT Foundation has funded a study that will examine the role of e-modules in imaging science curricula at three academic medical centers. The research project will aim to determine whether case-based e-modules improve exam outcomes compared to students who participated in standard education methods.

An e-module is computer-based educational content that runs approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Focusing on one or two learning concepts, e-modules incorporate a blend of teaching and assessment tools that may include video clips, direct instruction, gaming elements, and social media.

A grant of nearly $10,000 was awarded to Tanya M. Custer, M.S., R.T.(R)(T), RDMS, RVT, an assistant professor and distance education coordinator at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, to fund the study.
