I have been working on the development of an interactive teaching module
for teaching undergraduate pharmacokinetics classes. I completed the first
topic and installed it on the internet. I will appreciate if the group can
examine this module and give me any comments and suggestions. This will be
very valuable for me in modifying this current topic and in developing
The address is:

Dear Dr. Hedaya,
I just tested your software on pharmacokinetics and I enjoyed it very much
because it allows students to choose values of pharmacokinetics parameters.
Interactivity is very important in the learning process.
My comments are the following :
1. The lines of text are truncated on my 14 inch monitor. Could you
decrease the size of the font so that it can fit on a smaller monitor ?
2. I suggest that the scaling of the x and y axis be ajusted automatically
depending on the maximum value of Cmax and the half-life calculated from
the values of the parameters. I have done so in my pharmacokinetics modules
and it works well.
I have also created several pharmacokinetics modules on pharmacokinetics
for my students using Authorware for Macintosh. I will translate the
modules in PC format on Windows because the majority of our students use PC
computers on Windows. The modules I have created are the following :
Linear pharmacokinetics for a one and two-compartment model, for iv or ev
administration and single or multiple dose and iv infusion
Pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic relations (in preparation)
Non-linear pharmacokinetics (in preparation)
My modules are in french. If you are interested in testing my modules, I
will place it on our FTP site so you can retrieve it.
Congratulations for your module et continue your good work.
