Microbiology Lab Panoramas

September 8, 2017

Over the past two years, eTV in partnership with the Medical Laboratory Sciences department has created immersive and interactive panoramas for three Microbiology Laboratories, showcasing different clinical environments: Red River College (educational), Westman Labs (urban), and Stonewall Diagnostics (rural). The success of these Microbiology panoramas has been recognized by students and professionals on a national scale.

The clinical setting for medical laboratory science students is diverse and unknown. Many of these spaces are restricted access to the public, so familiarizing/orienting someone to these environments is challenging. A student may not understand or comprehend the laboratories function within a rural community, which is drastically different then the tertiary facility. The panoramas allow for the exploration and understanding of these different environments that would otherwise be restricted.
