Learn About Your Cells Through a Virtual Microscope!

Now approaching its 3rd year of being taught, BIOL J530, Histology, is an increasingly popular distributed learning course that uses a virtual microscope to enhance the digital lectures.  Its first class had 150 students registered.  As the 2013 Spring semester approaches, there are already 171 students signed up to take the class.

The professors, Dr. Ogilvie and Dr. Sawyer, have made a 6 minute promotional video for the class.

Dr. Ogilvie also presented a report on the progress of his course over the 2011 Spring and Fall semesters.  The presentation is captured in this 16 minute video.  Included are results from student surveys.
