    MED32/442: Internet Lectures: A five years experience at the University of Vienna


    Introduction: Internet lectures are a very useful specialized tool to distribute information to interested people. Our experience started 1994 and we want to give a survey.

    Methods: We started with a special lecture on atherosclerosis and improved the method within the last years. We had a lot of problems with certification and identification procedures, but they are solved now. In the last years we added web casting tools.

    Results: At this time we have 80- 140 student per term, which are participants of a lectures. These are students attending a certificate course. Additionally we distribute our content over two homepages which we have installed to improve our work http://www.lipidforum.at, http://www.billrothhaus.at (10000 hits/month).

    Discussion: Internet will be the most important tool for future teaching. It is an interesting experience to teach students from all over the world and you learn a lot from these people by yourself.
