eLearning Object Co-creation
HACKATHON

The sudden CMCO extension turned out to be a blessing in disguise for
the inaugural eLearning Object Co-creation Hackathon held last Thursday (5th November 2020) as it forced the event to go 100% online. Truly fitting
for a hackathon focused on eLearning development.

The event saw teams of students and facilitators pushed their online collaboration skills in designing storyboards for eLearning objects on the
topic of Patient Safety on Zoom, using MURAL as a collaborative design platform.

This event was co-organised by the Faculty of Medicine eLearning Unit and the Medical Education and Research Development Unit. A total of 48 medical graduates and students, nursing students, staff and lecturers participated in this event. The stars of the event were of course the students who co-created seven brilliant storyboards on patient safety in a short span of a few hours.

Attached is a poster compilation of the participants and their storyboards. The best storyboards (from the top three winners) will be developed into
Reusable Learning Objects to benefit teaching and learning in the Faculty of Medicine.
