platforms for virtual microscopy

Introduction

Platforms for virtual microscopy
  • Embedded pages (USCAP, AFIP)
  • Specialized solutions for virtual microscopy (SlidePath)
  • Localized standalone systems (Basel, Zürich)
  • Personal sites (Aachen)
  • E-learning Systems (Moodle, WebCT)
    • Course oriented
    • Community oriented
things to consider when choosing a system

Introduction

Things to consider when choosing a system
  • E-learning functionality
    • Authentication, LDAP support
    • Interactive Modules
    • Exams
    • Feedback
    • others
  • Easy to use content management system
  • Flexibility (Modularity)
  • Low or no cost
  • Community support
moodle

Introduction

Moodle
  • Moodle is an open source e-learning system
  • It is course-based
  • It uses a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) architecture

Modular,

Object-Oriented,

Dynamic

course management

Introduction

Course Management
  • A teacher administrator has full control over all settings for a course, including restricting other teachers
  • Choice of course formats such as by week, by topic or a discussion-focused social format
  • Flexible array of course activities:Forums, Journals, Quizzes, Resources, Choices, Surveys, Assignments, Chats, Workshops, Internalmail
  • Display recent changes to the course since the last login can be displayed on the course home page
  • Easy editing of text for resources, forum postings, journal entries using an embedded WYSIWYG HTML editor
  • Import and export custom courses, examples, and scorm compatible objects
topic based format

Basic Moodle

Topic based format
  • Lists of topics within one course
  • Within each topic „activities“ (such as lessons, hyperlinks, questionaire etc.) or „blocks“ (data, images) may be included
  • Convenient for presentation of a list of cases, such as a study set of digital slides
topic based format drawbacks

Basic Moodle

Topic based format- Drawbacks -
  • Not good for maintaining large cases series
    • Repetetive formatting of every cases
    • Maintainence of hyperlinks tedious
  • Not good for structured documents, such as unknown cases and solutions
  • No database facilities like search or sort
database module

Modules

Database module
  • Provides one or multiple sub-databases per course
  • Database fields include numeric, text, textarea, file, image, menu, URL and others
  • Teacher and/or student can enter data
  • Lists can be searched and sorted
database module further uses

Modules

Database module- Further uses -
  • Accessability of database content from other modules
  • Linking database from external sources (e.g. through PHP)
  • Interactive use, e.g. allowing students to enter data
book module

Modules

Book Module
  • Provides textual and non textual content
  • Arragend in chapters and sub-chapters
  • Input is plain HTML using the integrated HTML editor or not
  • No search of sort facilities
wiki module

Modules

Wiki module
  • Uses Nwiki (based on dfWiki), from Moodle 1.9
  • Syntax like MediaWiki (used in Wikipedia)
  • Ideal for collaborative editing
  • Students and Teachers can enter data
  • Usueful for collecting structured information, such as when building a course
  • Beware: Texts in the Wiki syntax cannot be used anywhere else in Moodle
lesson module

Modules

Lesson module
  • Interactive questions and answer pages
  • Case-based learning
tricks and hints

Tricks and Hints

Tricks and Hints
  • <iframe> tag
  • Javascript
  • Execution of custom PHP files
use of iframe and external php script

Tricks and Hints

Use of <iframe> and external PHP script

mysql_connect(localhost,$username,$password);

@mysql_select_db($database) or die( "Unable to select database");

$query="SELECT * FROM svs WHERE substr(kurs,12,3)='".$serie."' order by id";
