Technology Rollout

iMedEd will be rolling out several new systems for the School of Medicine:

Ilios

Ilios is our curriculum management system that allows us to map the School of Medicine curriculum to identify what is being taught in our courses and find gaps/redundanices. Ilios also allows us to create a report of our curricular data for annual upload into the AAMC Curriculum Inventory and Reports system.

All curricular resources for a course or clerkship should be uploaded to Ilios. These resources should be appropriately identified by topics, MeSH terms and learning objectives.

To access Ilios:

1. Visit: https://curriculum.hs.uci.edu/

2. Login with your HS credentials

Canvas

Canvas is our new learning management system (LMS). An LMS is a software tool that enables you to support administration of a course with features like course web pages, grade books, online quizzing, discussion boards, etc. Canvas will replace the features that we have previously taken advantage of through EEE and MERLiN. It will become the primary interface for course materials by our students and the location of Med Ed Calendars for faculty/staff/students in the Fall. 

Canvas will integrate with Ilios so that all curricular resources can be accessed via the Calendar of a Canvas course.

To access Canvas:

1. Visit: https://ucisom.instructure.com/

2. Login with your HS credentials

Examsoft

Examsoft is a system that supports creation, administration, scoring and analysis of assessments/exams. Having Examsoft at the School of Medicine will enable us many opportunities including the following:

  • To maintain robust question banks
  • To securely administer exams on the iPad (as well as other devices) and limit our dependency on Scantrons
  • To analyze and improve the quality of our assessments
  • To track assessments in relation to competencies and objectives to support our accreditation/compliance efforts.

Poll Everywhere

Poll Everywhere is an audience response tool that enables you to interact with your learners by asking them questions that they can answer via text message, Twitter or a web browser. With this tool, there is no need for physical hardware, like a clicker device, and responses can be seen in real-time embedded directly into your Powerpoint presentation (no need to jump between your slides and another window!) as well as from a web browser.

1. Visit: https://www.polleverywhere.com/
