The Internet is becoming an important way of delivering medical and other educational information. We have estabilished neuroanatomy education website in Korean (http://anatomy.yonsei.ac.kr/neuro-web/home.htm) based on textbook of medical neuroanatomy written by the authors. For searching database indexed text and figures, Microsoft SQL (Structure Query Language) server version 7.0 on the Microsoft Windows NT platform was used. HTML (hypertext markup language) template files were designed to show the results of database queries. The bulletin board was added to answer the questions.
Log file analysis of the website server revealed average 112.3 visitors per day viewing average 26.1 pages in the period of four weeks from September 1st to 28th, 2001. Much appreciation was expressed in bulletin boards as well as questions and comments. We have reported process of website development for other educators in anatomy in order to share the lessons learned to develop and enhance their own information through the Internet.
