Figure 3

Comparison of two learning strategies: e-Learning versus custom classroom training. Absolute score indicates results of a pre- and posttest multiple choice questionnaire including 20 knowledge or image questions. Left of vertical line: results of learning success of a one-day presence only training on lung ultrasound “THOLUUSE” including 50% hands-on of ( ) medical doctors without E-Learning (taken from Breitkreutz et al. [14]). Right of dashed line: learning with e-learning but without custom classroom or hands-on training. E-Learning access was available within a learning phase of 4 weeks followed by a break without access of 2 weeks and completion with a sustainability test within the 7th week, results of medical students. E-Learning was as effective as presence training regarding knowledge gain. (Boxslots contain median; line, box with 25/75 percentile, whiskers 5/95%, outliers, plus sign: mean), NS: not significant.
