ProtoGenie in the Classroom
A powerful application of ProtoGenie is its integration into online and offline course work on research methods where it gives students opportunities to learn the principles and practice of research through hands-on creation and execution of research protocols based on different designs. ProtoGenie provides learning-by-doing support for traditional classroom courses on research methods and design. It is ideal for online courses and distance curricula related to research. It provides unique opportunities for inexperienced as well as non-technical students to learn the complexities of research designs, such as clinical trials, in safe environments without long periods of on-the-job internships in research projects. It enables students to leave courses on research with the ability to actually put into practice what they have learned in the classroom.
