Training by iPod

Found these two articles describing how a hospital is using iPods to give new staff induction training.

I find the idea that an iPod is better for training than an interactive, one-to-one session is quite fascinating. People assume new technology will give benefits.

I wonder how they are going to demonstrate the "expected benefits to patients include improved safety and less exposure to clinical risk."

It is also a great example of where we measure achievement by saying people have received training, not whether they have learnt anything.
