Abstract

When cutting-edge discoveries in biotechnology research are made, it is important that the information be disseminated throughout the academe, the medical world, and to the public. The understanding of the complexity of the technique can be simplified through the use of multimedia as a form of scientific education. A pilot study is underway at Arizona State University, researching rich media technology for Web-based document distribution for biotechnology education. This study is a collaboration between the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Arizona State University’s IDeaLaboratory, a creative thinking and usability engineering laboratory.

I. Introduction

The biotechnology, engineering, and medical education community in today’s world need informed professionals, who are aware of emerging technological strategies to communicate and disseminate state-of-the-art laboratory procedures, such as non-viral gene therapy for lung diseases. The need for global dissemination of new procedures to a wider audience has resulted in a change in pedagogy on how higher education content is delivered.

Emerging digital technology has been changing the way biotechnological discoveries can be communicated and the way that scientific content can be disseminated through Web-based distribution. When cutting-edge discoveries in biotechnology research are revealed, it is important that the information be disseminated throughout the academe, the medical world, and to the public. The understanding of the complexity of the technique can be simplified through the use of multimedia as a form of medical education. A pilot study is underway at Arizona State University, researching rich media technology for Web-based document distribution for biotechnology education. This study is a collaboration between the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Arizona State University’s IDeaLaboratory, a creative thinking and usability engineering laboratory.

The scope of this research is exploratory in nature. It will compare two e-learning technologies, address the impact of using e-documents, and will produce usability engineering tools. This research will benefit both the academic world and the business world. This paper will present an overview of the proposed pilot project, summarizing basic media arts approaches that can be used to communicate the research of pre-clinical gene delivery treatment –– specifically for non- viral gene therapy for lung diseases. The findings from this study can be applied to graphic presentation of other medical procedures.
