This case study examines the use and benefits of online user generated self-assessment learning objects in Medicine. Two medical students from the University of Bristol developed a free online website called Medicles, which allows medical students from all over the world to develop and share mini-tutorials on a wide range of topic areas. This case study examines how the Medicles system works, and discusses the benefits that user generated learning resources can offer.
