Frequently Asked Questions
HackDentistry is an E-learning and a Crowd-Sourcing platform that aims make learning dentistry fun, engaging and light-hearted. Apart from routine classes to attend and huge textbooks to read, we believe students need quality online dental resources to complement their learning, understanding of core concepts and help them revise and practice efficiently. Our mission is to break the shackles of mundane passive reading, make studying enjoyable and also improve dental education in order to foster expert graduates, clinicians and researchers.
The E-learning aspect focuses on improving students’ understanding of the core subject/specialty and exam performance. We intend to accomplish this by creating
- a robust library of light-hearted sketch/whiteboard animation lectures.
- a huge library consisting of thousands of practice questions (multiple choice format) and
- notes for quick revisions
HackDentistry also provides for a crowd-sourcing platform, in which students can create their own notes,articles & multiple choice questions, post it on the platform and share it with their peers and other users of HackDentistry. The purpose is two fold:
- Create a community of dental students and dentists who can share and discuss academic material in order to facilitate active learning.
- Crowd-sourcing would give free access to valuable content created by dental students/dentists globally.
