Medicine 2.0 (2012): Web apps for medical education

7 brides for 7 brothers. Or 7 low/no-cost web apps to use in medical education.
Teresa Heithaus of North Shore-Long Island Jewish health system’s Staten Island University Hospital, NY gave a talk  on web applications that can be used for low or no cost.
Some of the tools she adapted from applications designed for K-12 education.
Here are 8 of the promised 7:
  1. <Quia.com> for making quizzes and surveys. It also provides an online grade book.
  2. <Socrative.com> an audience response system that allows students to use their own smart phone, tablet or laptop. Very cool.
  3. <BigMarker.com> offers free video conferencing. The free conferences have to be public. If you want to make the conferences private it costs $9-99/month
  4. <Livebinders.com> is a website that allows the teacher to collect web resources for distribution as teaching resources. Pretty cool idea.
  5. Google Apps <http://www.google.com/enterprise/apps/business/index2.html> For Sites, YouTube, Blogger, docs, Google Drive)
  6. <http://www.mendeley.com> is a free PDF manager and reference manager.
  7. <http://animoto.com> for making videos
  8. <http://prezi.com> for making fresh pan and zoom presentations
