The topic of interest is the development of a tablet-based educational application. For now, the Apple iPad2 is the designated platform for the new app, with future migration to other tablet device operating systems (OS) possible, allowing for greater flexibility. The app will assist novice students in their learning process in a medical ultrasound education program. Specific design goals include enhancing user spatial cognition during visualization of complex 3-dimensional structures, user navigation through representative applications and their intended real-world corollary, and user interaction with simulated or enhanced environments.
