Boston University anesthesiologist Rafael Ortega, M.D., believes that creating digital content means much more than just posting a pdf of a textbook online.

Ortega and five colleagues did just that when they created the first fully interactive, mobile edition of the authoritative text in their field—Barash’s Clinical Anesthesia. Listen in as Ortega describes how moving images, sound, richness in color make a multimedia media experience more powerful, learner-centered, and most important of all . . . enjoyable.
