The Learning Resource Server Medicine (LRSMed) is a free-to-access catalog of electronic learning and teaching software modules for education in medicine and dentistry available in English and German.

History[edit]

The LRSMed was developed at the Institut für Medizinische Informatik, Biometrie und Epidemiologie (IMIBE) of the University Duisburg-Essen, Germany, within the joint research project "Vision 2003",[1] funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research.[2]

Content[edit]

The LRSMed includes electronic learning and teaching software modules for education in medicine and dentistry, which are deployed in the World Wide Web free of charge.[3][4] The learning resources are described with a quasi-standard of metadata, the IMS Learning Resource Meta-data Information Model.[5] Users are able to search for entries using several parameters as medical field, type of learning resource and language.[6]

Status[edit]

The LRSMed is maintained at the Institut für Medizinische Informationsverarbeitung, Biometrie und Epidemiologie (IBE) of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany (September 2013). As of 22 October 2013, 1705 learning resources are registered. The LRSMed was evaluated or used in several independent studies.[7][8][9]
