Abstract

Professional schools across the country are increasingly integrating technological tools into the curriculum. This purpose of this study was to examine the types of technology tools used by the third-year professional students in pharmacy enrolled in two courses in the Pharm. D. curriculum in Spring 2014, and find out which tools were most helpful to support active learning and group collaboration in a multi-site environment. The findings showed that Google Docs, among other tools, was used the most, and considered most helpful by the students for group collaboration in a multi-site environment. The findings on using a videoconferencing tool such as BigBlueButton™ embedded in Canvas showed mixed results: While about one-third of the students found it helpful, others indicated technical issues such as audio and bandwidth connection issues that impacted their learning process. The findings were discussed.
