8 EXAMPLE OF BLACKBOARD DATA Fall Semester 2012 Course Activity

9 EXAMPLE OF BLACKBOARD DATA

10 Virtual Laboratories WebMic Virtual Slide

11 WebMic An interactive web accessible virtual microscope Composed of nested static photomicrographs delivered by java applets 157 specimens comprehensively annotated to highlight important microscopic structures Two self-assessment opportunities for students to assess their knowledge of microscopic structure.

12 Virtual Slides created with Digital slide scanning technology has made it possible to convert a biological specimen on a glass slide completely into a digital format…….. So that microscopic architecture can be explored using.. …a computer…. …the Internet….. …. specialized software! You examine the specimen over the Internet just like you would using a microscope! Virtual Slides

13 Virtual Slide Creation Microscope equipped with a motorized stage, digital camera and computer software to control scanning and image collection. Self-contained systems where the objective lens and the mechanism to move the slide or camera are enclosed. MBFbioscience.com Aperio.com

14 Digital Data in a Histological Slide MBFbioscience.com

15 Advantages of Virtual Slides Multiple levels of resolution are available from a virtual slide Overview 0.08x Entire 2x3 inch slide scanned with a 20x objective (~300x absolute mag). It is not possible to see this large a field-of-view with a standard microscope. Single section 0.63x Even a single section overview is impossible with a microscope Anatomic detail 5x Cellular detail 20x
