OpenAnesthesia to Launch OASelfStudyPLUS, the First Adaptive Learning App for Anesthesiology

OpenAnesthesia, a leader in web resources in the field of anesthesiology, today announced the availability of OASelfStudyPLUS on October 24. OASelfStudyPLUS is the first adaptive learning app for anesthesiologists. This easy-to-use app personalizes learning using novel and patented algorithms that assess and adapt to individual needs.

To highlight the app’s launch, OpenAnesthesia is promoting an online OASelfStudyPLUS Challenge to be held during the ASA 2015 annual meeting in San Diego, October 24-27. Registration for the SelfStudyPLUS 4-day Challenge begins today.

SelfStudyPLUS is a revolutionary new product that allows users to strengthen their knowledge and retention with innovative technology based on pioneering research in education, cognitive psychology and neuroscience.

SelfStudyPLUS benefits and features:

  • Access over 1500 questions curated by teaching physicians at top hospitals—via a fast, easy-to-use app
  • Enjoy learning with games and timed challenges: 20-, 60- and 120-minute practice tests
  • Challenge colleagues or compete against the app
  • Fit learning into a busy schedule; 2-3 minutes per question
  • Track progress at a glance with visual performance reports
  • Earn up to 240 hours of Continuing Medical Education (CME) — up to 10 hours for every 50 correctly answered questions

“Under development for almost two years, SelfStudyPLUS promises to revolutionize education in anesthesiology,” explained Edward C. Nemergut, MD and editor-in-chief, OpenAnesthesia. “SelfStudyPLUS is the first adaptive learning and continuous assessment resource for anesthesiologists. Leveraging the principles of test-enhanced learning, it builds upon each learner’s strengths, automatically finding and filling gaps in knowledge.”

About the SelfStudyPlus Challenge

The challenge is open to all resident anesthesiologists and anesthesiologists in practice. Participants do not need to attend ASA 2015 to participate. To participate in the Challenge, participants will register for the app—at no charge—then compete with each other using the app’s Game features. The Challenge will begin at 12 noon PT on October 24 and end at 12 noon on October 27. The overall winner will receive an iPad Air®. Daily winners receive a FitBit Surge ™. *

During the 4-day challenge, participants can track up-to-the minute scores by checking the leaderboard within the app. Leader updates will also be available by liking OpenAnesthesia on Facebook and following them on Twitter .
