Clinical education is difficult for actual practice of medical students. In particular, the practice in the field of obstetrics is more difficult to many students. Moreover, the education of sub-fields of obstetrics such as birth or abortion needs many materials of women's reproductive organs. However, the ordinary paper-based textbooks have some limitations for clinical education of obstetrics. The electronic textbook system based on multimedia data enables that many student, doctor, and public user overcome these difficulties, as a computer assisted learning. We developed multimedia database system which is connected with web using ODBC(Open DataBase Connectivity)and ASP(Active Server Page)/IDC(Internet DataBase Connection). Many text and multimedia data are gathered in the database. This system serves various multimedia data using internet and intranet in the student's class or home. In conclusion, providing multimedia data of obstetrics using ODBC, ASP/IDC method reduce the limitation of clinical education. This model of the electronic textbook would be a reference to develop multimedia database on the network.
