Lucy Webster of the School of Biomedical Sciences is leading a collaborative project with uImagine in which subjects across three schools within the Faculty of Science will trial the use of the BEST network biomedical image database along with the Smart Sparrow adaptive learning tools. Students will benefit through the ability to access a wide range of microscopic biomedical images in the context of self-paced learning resources helping them to build their conceptual understandings of key anatomical or physiological material.
Significant & Benefit
Membership to the BEST Network provides CSU with access to courseware tools that allow the creation of rich, interactive and adaptive. It also gives CSU access to the world class SLICE medical Image Bank.
Access to rich, interactive and adaptive courseware.
Online tools that allow access to virtual lab environments and imaging resources
Access to SLICE – a premium cloud-based biomedical image bank.
Access to the Smart Sparrow authoring system to create adaptive learning resources.
The aim of this project is to assess the BEST network membership and it’s application across multiple schools and disciplines in the Faculty of Science.
