The Internet has been used to increase the understanding of various technical topics. In the graduate biomedical engineering program at New Jersey Institute of Technology, there is a course that deals with medical instrumentation, including both the theory and applications for a wide range of instrumentation. While the textbook, which is one of the standard texts used by many biomedical programs, covered most of the material adequately, the author merged the use of numerous websites into many of the lectures, providing students with more details about the application of the instrumentation, in a multimedia format. This material enhanced the ability of the students to comprehend the material. Students were able to also view this material as part of a homework assignment. The paper will describe these various websites, and how they were incorporated into the various lectures, as well as the student evaluation of this process.
