Abstract
OBJECTIVE:
Continuing medical education (CME) has not taken advantage of the ability to communicate and collaborate online. Collaborative learning is an important learning principle, yet online CME programs are generally completed in a one-on-one relationship between the computer and the learner. This limits opportunities for reflective learning, and does not access the rich learning available from interacting with peers. We believe online CME will benefit from interaction between learners and from opportunities for reflection.
