Comparison between Pre-recorded Anatomy Lecture and Real-time Online Anatomy Lecture

  • 1Department of Anatomy, Yonsei University Wonju College of Medicine, Korea


Under the COVID-19 situation, face-to-face anatomy lectures have been rapidly replaced by nonface-to-face anatomy lectures. While there are various methods for non-face-to-face lecture, 3 teachers in the authors’ institution respectively performed screen-recorded lecture, camera-recorded lecture, and real-time online lecture. Regarding the three methods for non-face-to-face lecture, a questionnaire survey was administered to the 103 students and 3 teachers who participated in the anatomy curriculum. Based on the survey, strong points and weak points of the three non-face-to-face methods were analyzed and their improvement plan was established. As a strong point, screen-recorded lecture and camera-recorded lecture could be recorded and watched at any time and any place. As a weak point, the pre-recorded lectures were difficult to concentrate and real-time question and answer was not possible. On the other hand, real-time online lecture was easy to concentrate and realtime question and answer was possible, which are similar to face-to-face lecture. For convenient watching of the lecture, it was decided to improve the video quality, audio quality, Internet speed, and so on. Based on the analysis, other anatomy teachers may select the most suitable method for the non-face-to-face lecture under the COVID-19 situation. Even after the COVID-19 situation, the non-face-to-face lecture can be partially employed for effective anatomy education.
