Novel Method to Manage Student Questions in the Anatomy Laboratory Using a Virtual Meeting Platform

Publication Date Aug 17, 2022

Abstract

Large class sizes and often few instructors in anatomy courses make it challenging for student laboratory groups to have their questions addressed in a timely manner. Instructors are often unaware of the number of requests for assistance, as well as the order in which assistance is requested, and students often spend a long time waiting for an instructor to become available. As a result of brainstorming with some of our students, a call button system of sorts was suggested. Instructors in consultation with the college’s IT department came up with the idea of using Zoom Meetings question and answer (Q&A) feature to manage student questions. Zoom allows one to broadcast a Zoom Meeting to up to 50,000 participant attendees, and instructors, logged in as panelists (on a mobile device, e.g., iPad), can interact with the student attendees via the Q&A feature. The students join the webinar using their dissection table number as their ID and request assistance in the Q&A. These requests show up with a time stamp and are automatically queued on the panelist’s Q&A window. Instructors employ the type answer feature to acknowledge the question by typing in their respective initials, which can be seen live by the other instructors (panelists). This allows student questions to be queued so that the instructors can address them in a timely, first-in/first-out order. Student feedback regarding the use of this system for the Small Animal Anatomy course was positive.
