AbstractTraditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) originates from ancient China with literature spanned over two millennium. The learning of TCM involves abundant hard facts, such as the properties of herbal agents, meridian and acupoints. Students are required to memorize these hard facts before proceeding to the learning of their clinical use. Suitable learning resources are rather limited. The School of Chinese Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong has tried to employ e-learning technology in the facilitation of effective learning in the past few years. Two smartphone apps projects have been conducted: (1) Acupuncture - Meridians and Acupoints, which contains text and graphics for the learning of acupuncture course; (2) Chinese Materia Medica Memorizer, which includes flashcards, e-book and quiz games for the learning of Chinese herbal agents. The production of these courseware suggested new initiatives of active learning of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The results show that these apps are welcomed by students and users.
