Inversus is an immersive online learning platform made exclusively for the medical students at The Johns Hopkins University.
This is not your typical e-lecture.
Inversus takes online learning to a new level. Through this platform, the traditional one-hour lecture is broken into 5 to 10 minute clips that are interspersed with questions so that students can reinforce the knowledge they are learning, as they learn. The instructor can monitor the students' understanding of the material and adjust their teaching accordingly.
Because students learn the material on their own time, class time is dedicated to application of concepts. Students take a more active role in their learning, and learn from their peers by participating in small group clinical case discussions. Professors act as a guide as students lead discussions. This teaching method is also known as "flipped classroom."
Inversus was created by Joshua Cohen and Regina de Luna (School of Medicine Class of 2017). It is powered by the OpenEdX platform.
