Digital Pathology is an enabler for Histology and Histopathology e-learning, transforming training world wide. Perfekt’s Digital Pathology solutions allow for educators to conference up to 50 students at a time, located anywhere on the globe, whilst examining tissue samples in the highest resolution for teaching accurate diagnosis.
Any online learning environment is only engaging when being immersed, interactively, with the slide image. Through the software layer of Perfekt’s Digital Pathology offering, Collibio allows for student interactivity in four key ways:
: clicking on annotations in the Layers pane will provide informative content about marked areas of the slide, whilst moving within the image to the area of the annotation at the level of zoom in use when the annotation was created.
: Allowing information to be imparted, and input sought on student opinions or assessments of their views of the slide content. Collibio provides 8 dialog constructs for form design to capture this input: whole number, decimal , single line and multi-line text boxes, drop down lists, radio buttons, multi-select check boxes and date entry fields. All content from forms is sent back to the lecturer for assessment via Collibio’s reporting function.
: An instructor can lead students in a virtual classroom, with Skype integration, online chat, pass and take control and follow-along capabilities. Importantly, each student user views an original quality image without pixelisation often seen in other remote viewing systems.
Attached Files and Documents
: At the slide folder or image level within the system an educator may upload a file that is a document or image that can be downloaded and opened by the student and displayed using desktop viewing software.
