A 35-year-old man loses consciousness while playing soccer

A 35-year-old man from Mexico passes out while playing soccer. So begins a new online interactive case on the New England Journal of Medicine website. The case progresses with twists and turns, and comes to a surprising conclusion. I am very impressed by the interactive online presentation of the case, and I think it sets a new standard for medical educators. We need our medical textbooks and journals to “go digital,” and become interactive. There’s no reason for case reports to be published in typical, dull style (in paper journals, heavy textbooks, or online as PDFs). We must capitalize on the tremendous potential of online learning.
