Temple Univ. dental school offers online learning system

The Temple University dental school has launched the first-ever online educational system offered by a U.S. dental school, according to a news story posted on the university's website.

The Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry's eCampus will provide lectures, webinars, and ePortfolios to dental students and practicing dentists for a minimal fee. Also, continuing education credits will be available for certain online materials.

"This project started with the idea that we have to have a mixed education model because we need to reach out globally as well as locally," said Kornberg Dean Amid Ismail, BDS, MPH, MBA, DrPH, in the story. "This is unique in that it is the first attempt to introduce global online learning as a supplement to dental education."

Currently, all materials on the site are free, but the site is expected to be populated and charging fees within the next six months, according to the story.
