  • About MRS

    Multimedia Repository System (MRS) is a web-based database management system, which was developed based on Instructional Management Systems (IMS) standard. This system provides interface for uploading multimedia objects to a central server system, enabling health professionals to catalog and organize their multimedia learning materials and resources. Cataloging fields include the description of the image, keywords, clinical information (such as diagnosis) and technical information (e.g., magnification). Importantly, health professionals can share their collections, or portions thereof, with students and colleagues who can browse the collections, through proper authentication, in a variety of ways: by keyword, disease category, by laboratory sets and by user customized queries. A query results in a display of thumbnail images or hyperlink and summary information about each multimedia item listed. The multimedia object can be downloaded to user storage media by clicking on the thumbnail or the hyperlink. A description, tutorial notes, clinical information (if applicable) and a copyright statement accompany the multimedia item. The repository can be integrated with Learning Management System, LMS, as online resources for teaching and learning purpose.

    This project was supported by Universiti Sains Malaysia short-term grant.
