What Are Bricks?
Rx Bricks uses short, high-yield, interactive lessons called “bricks.” It is modular, flexible, and customizable. Content is broken down into the smallest cohesive learning units, or "bricks", and organized around basic science topics (e.g., pressure-volume loops) or clinical concepts (e.g., ischemic heart disease). Each brick uses clear language to explain and contextualize key topics, many in less than 20 minutes. Then, it offers built-in review tools to test understanding of the content right away.
What Is Rx Bricks Create?
Rx Bricks Create is an authoring platform designed to help faculty spend less time churning out content and more time building great learning experiences. With a user-friendly interface and intuitive navigation, Rx Bricks Create allows educators to focus on building meaningful content, rather than learning complicated software. More importantly, educators are also able to leverage over 800 existing Bricks from the Rx Bricks library and edit and customize them to meet the needs of their curriculum.
