"Most e-learning research studies are not applicable to our students because of differences between countries in student age and Internet access. The mean age of our students is 18 years, which is 6 years less than that of Year 1 US medical students. Latin America represents only 9.4% of Internet users worldwide and in Argentina only 34% of the population has Internet access. This brings into question the applicability of results from e-learning studies performed with anatomy students 6 years older than those in Argentina and in countries where Internet access is twice as available. Because we found no answers to such questions, we decided to perform our own study to prove the efficacy of using an OFA in a South American anatomy course."
