Utilisation des réseaux sociaux pour améliorer l’apprentissage de la cardiologie pour l’examen classant national. Étude iec²n

Abstract : Introduction: the recent expansion of e-learning contributed to modernize pedagogy and teaching in universities. Furthermore, today’s students are the first users of social networks like Facebook, with a daily use close to 15 minutes. Objective: to assess the efficiency of an e-learning formation using Facebook to improve medical students’ knowledge in cardiology and to optimize their preparation for the entrance exams for resident. Materials & Methods: 258 multiple choice questions (MCQ) were prepared by cardiologists from Cochin Hospital, then sent daily and repeatedly through Facebook to the Paris Descartes University’s medical students. Regular evaluations were also sent every 3 months. A student who answered at least 50 MCQ was considered as a participant of the formation. We collected the exams’ ranking of each student of the University. Results: among 397 University’s students, 201 took part in the formation. The average rank at the exams was significantly better among students who participated in our formation (2439 ± 1830 vs 3609 ± 2253, p<0,001). This rank was correlated to the students’ participation and good answers rates in daily MCQ. Participation rates were also correlated to best results at the regular evaluations. Conclusion: this learning management system through a social network has been well adopted by medical students, and shows his effectiveness in teaching cardiology and predicting performance at entrance exams for resident doctors. A mobile application integrating other medical specialties and a personalized teaching program is under development.
