the implications of supercourse on global health education and research
The Implications of Supercourse on Global Health Education and Research

I. Information Sharing

Through the Supercourse library of lectures, we can distribute lectures related to diseases, prevention, disaster preparedness, and research findings as well

II. Time Saving

New educators will be able to reduce preparation time needed to develop lectures

III. Content Quality and Enhancement

High quality and readily usable contents make better educators world wide

slide10

The Implications of Supercourse on Global Health Education and Research

IV. Free Content

The concept of library of lectures for all to use in many ways similar to that of “freeware” or “open source software’ on the computer

V. Easy Access

-Easy and accessible through the internet

-Medical and nursing faculty in developing countries have access to current scientific information which they would not normally have.
