Abstract

The use of online multimedia content in nurse education is still in its infancy with limited research about its role and acceptance by students and staff within nursing courses. This paper describes the development of interactive web based delivery for the European Union Directive (77/453/EEC) for maternity, child care and mental health within adult nursing education. An evaluative study carried out by an online questionnaire with students, using both structured questions and free text, and a focus group with staff whilst identifying areas for further development found general acceptance of this approach. The study has provided important insights into both the content and delivery of the packs, and the format of the material. The use of IT, with multimedia elements, was seen as being beneficial by both students and staff. The findings will be useful in improving and developing the packs for future cohorts.
