ArcheMedX is a learning architecture created to both strengthen and simplify the learning process by helping learners take better notes, build in reminders so they can reflect on what they learn over time, search for further information to help them integrate learning into practice, and collaborate withand other learners to validate their perspectives on the information.
Using Learning Action Data to Build Better Education
Educational planners andalso can use the unstructured data to enhance what they’re offering. One user might set a reminder at seven minutes into an activity, while another might take a note at four minutes in. These data enable providers to see exactly what learners are engaging with, and how. This “fundamentally changes how we assess learning,” McGowan says. “At the individual activity level we’re using qualitative analyses to assess learning based on the natural language processes. Once we’ve done this across dozens of activities, we’ve just created the world’s largest learning registry of tens of thousands of notes and reminders and searches, all archived and connected back to the pieces of content that were driving those actions in the first place,” says McGowan. “We’ll be able to answer hundreds of correlative or associative research questions, which is where the field needs to go. Instead of asking ‘Does CME work?’ we can ask ‘Why does medical education work?’”
Adds Selzer, “Since the architecture provides a way for educators to assess the learning that’s taking place and update content dynamically based on real-time analysis, our educational partners can now create a continual state of improvement in programs powered by ArcheMedX. Together, we can ensure it doesn’t take 17 years for the next great advancement to become standard practice. “
There are currently more than two-dozen partners (including national medical societies, leading content providers, and academic medical centers) who are beginning to leverage the ArcheMedX learning architecture. To learn more about the system, visit archemedx.com.
