External Funds and Material Development

Information on external funds and teaching material development involving the Multimedia Education Division


2004 Support Program for Contemporary Educational Needs: A Pioneering Education System for Cultivating International Medical Professionals
Blackboard (formerly WebCT), NetAcademy, and Streaming were introduced to make “practical use of e-learning” as part of the “systemization of English learning programs that support hands on clinical practice, training, and research abroad” program platform from the support program above.

2005 Support Program for Distinctive University Education: Establishment of Computer Assisted Education System on Clinical Simulation for Medical and Dental Practice Training
This is a multimedia simulation education system for improving the examination and research abilities of students. It was designed and developed by TMDU faculty.
This initiative was adopted as the 2005 Support Program for Distinctive University Education. Currently, content is offered for undergraduate students in the School of Dentistry, the School of Oral Health Care Sciences, the School of Medicine, and students in the School of Health Care Sciences Medical Technology.
This initiative was developmentally continued and implemented from 2009 in the Program for Promoting University Education and Student Support Theme A: Program for Promoting University Education Reform "Progress of the Computer Assisted Simulation for Medical and Dental Practice Training."

2007 Support Program for Contemporary Educational Needs: Integration of Information and Communication Technology into Clinical Training
This initiative will develop and create a new education system that will use multiple servers to mutually integrate education using information and communication technology, traditional clinical training, training with models, and lectures, all of which are currently implemented separately.

2007 Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Grants-in-aid for Scientific Research
Grants-in-Aid Basic Research (B): Development of a Medical Communication Training System through E-Learning for International Medical and Dental Exchange Students

This initiative will develop a system for independent study of medical communication using e-learning. Before the development of this system, topics such as the needs involved in actual communication education, learner readiness, and awareness of patient-side medical communication will be investigated. Based on an analysis of the results of these investigations, e-learning materials for learning medical communication will be developed.

2009 Program for Promoting University Education and Student Support Theme A
Program for Promoting University Education Reform: Development of a Computer Assisted Simulation for Medical and Dental Practice Training

This initiative will cross department lines to jointly develop educational materials shared by medical university students and files, etc. which should be mutually learned, and create an education system through which students in all departments can study without restrictions on time or space. This will cultivate students’ clinical reasoning, clinical judgment, problem solving abilities, and practical team medical skills, as well as ensure they have abilities appropriate to university graduates as medical professionals.
Persons interested in creating content should contact the media information clerk. Persons not affiliated with TMDU are also welcome.
Materials for the Medical and Dental Simulation Education System are created by teaching staff. Tools are also being developed to help teaching staff not overly familiar with computers to easily create materials.
