A Unique Learning Environment
CAPSULE (Clinical and Professional Studies Unique Learning Environment) is an educational resource designed to help undergraduate medical students learn and improve their medical knowledge. Created in partnership between Brighton & Sussex Medical School and Ocasta.
It has over 650 realistic clinical cases with associated questions working through the scenario. All cases include high quality feedback to help maximise learning. Brighton and Sussex Medical School have written all the content, questions and cases. An editorial board, led by Professor David Howlett, keeps it relevant and up to date.
Encapsulating Digital Learning
With CAPSULE the user can create personalised quizzes, search for a specific case or topic in the extensive case library. CAPSULE allows the user to view feedback on questions answered as well as statistics to drive learning and progress. To keep the content correct and up to date the user can comment and feedback on learning content.
“We wanted to give students the opportunity and convenience to study any time and any where across all devices and platforms. Fitting into students’ digital habits and current preferred choice of device ”
