  • RSNA’s Online Education Goes Mobile

    October 01, 2013

    RSNA’s redesigned online education portal offers greater accessibility, flexibility and interactivity—now accessible from your mobile device.

    Keeping pace with the digital age and the busy lifestyle of its users, RSNA’s redesigned online education portal offers greater accessibility, flexibility and interactivity—and it’s all now accessible from your mobile device too.

    Designed to accommodate on-the-go schedules, RSNA’s vast library of online CME content is now accessible from any mobile platform. Smartphone and tablet users who access the RSNA website from their devices will be automatically redirected to the mobile version of the site.

    Along with mobile accessibility, users will experience streamlined access to RSNA education content including Refresher Courses, RadioGraphics and Radiology content, and Cases of the Day. The sleek new interface, interactive touch-screen learning and instantaneous user feedback will instantly appeal to mobile and PC users alike.

    Long-time users will quickly see—and feel—the difference as they explore the exciting new features designed to maximize the learning experience from any computer platform. Users can start at the easy-access menu on the top of the page to access enrollments, transcripts and the newly reorganized RSNA online catalog that optimizes the search for courses.

    New online testing features provide novel, thought-provoking user interaction including instant, answer-specific feedback. After choosing an answer, the new system immediately provides a “Correct” or “Incorrect” response including a brief explanation for either. With one click, users can view RadioGraphics and Radiology articles directly alongside the test questions, providing easy reference to journal content. Users can also enlarge images for closer scrutiny.

    Also new: Users previously limited to taking a test three times can now take an exam as often as they choose.

    Easing the schedules of busy residents and fellows, the RSNA/American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Physics Modules have been redesigned in a mobile format, fostering an exciting, dynamic learning experience. Modules are color-coded by topic and feature a new interface allowing users to navigate to key module topic areas with a simple tap of the screen instead of navigating via a static course outline. Another new feature allows the user to walk away from the physics module and resume again from the same place.

    Along with RSNA’s commitment to staying in step with the digital age, feedback from users who have long relied on RSNA’s online education portal to fill their CME needs were major drivers of the redesign, according to members of RSNA’s Education Council.

    “The RSNA Education Committee recommended to the Board of Directors that RSNA embrace a mobile learning format to address the ever-changing needs of our members and to provide ease-of-use when accessing online education content,” said David E. Avrin, M.D., Ph.D., Chairman of RSNA’s Education Committee.
