Medical Students and Lecturers In the Know with Alexander Street Press Resources

Videos with Synchronized Text Is One of the Many Advantages of Alexander Street Press

The Library of MU-Varna hosted yesterday a training workshop on Alexander Street Press data bases. Its resources have been accessed 1200+ times (partially or in-full) only within the last month of free trial access available at MU-Varna. This was revealed by Krassimira Angelova, the Alexander Street Press representative. The ASP products are user friendly and flexible, not only academically oriented but extremely helpful for professional English learning altogether. Theory and practice are visualized in a mix-media: each video is synchronized with text which can be downloaded for itself. This proved to be exceptionally favored in nursing training and education for example.

Dental Education in Video, Rehabilitation Therapy, Medical Imaging in Video and Nursing Education in Video happened to be the most popular among Varna Medical University users.

Alexander Street Press data bases are exceedingly flexible: each video can be cut in segments and enriched additionally with lecturer’s annotations; one might use the ‘Send to Mobile’ option to direct a particular video file to a personal mobile for the next 48 hrs.; users are allowed to  create tailored play-lists, which can be enriched with outside sources as well.

Students and lecturers from the departments of neurology, physiotherapy and rehabilitation, English learning etc. took part in the workshop and expressed interest in the Alexander Street Press data bases and its future availability.

The free access trial is available until March 11, 2016. You can access the database through this link or the Library website.
