Hipokrates - E-Learning

The film takes us on a journey through two and a half thousand years of the teaching and learning of medicine. Printing, colour photography and modern information and communication technology are milestones in the conveyance of the exponentially increasing and rapidly changing knowledge available on this path. “Blended learning” is the magic formula which successfully makes the most of this situation and creates a dynamic, interactive system of learning in which, in addition to traditional teaching methods such as lectures, courses and bedside teaching, also self-responsible learning in the internet (e-learning), available anywhere and at any time, comes to the fore.
