eTV at LABCON 2016

June 21, 2016

eTV and Medical Laboratory Sciences were extremely proud to present the Microbiology Panorama to an audience of national delegates at LABCON 2016 in Charlottetown, PEI. LABCON is the annual national conference for medical laboratory professionals hosted by the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science. Recognized in the closing ceremonies as a highlight of the conference, audience members were taken through the process of creating the interactive Panorama and the many components, its purpose in teaching and learning, and were given a chance to view it with Oculus and Google Cardboard technology.

“It was apparent to the national delegation that the eTV department has many talented individuals with skills and abilities related to new teaching technologies that can be used in the classroom. Dylan and I were able to showcase the project and gain national recognition for the forward thinking and pioneering efforts being created and implemented at RRC.”
   – Michele Sykes, MLS instructor, Panorama content creator, and co-presenter

Supporting SECD – Update

May 20, 2016

eTV has recently returned from Kenya and Mozambique with more spectacular footage of Early Child Development activities. Working with the School of Health Sciences and Community Services Research Department, the AKF (Aga Khan Foundation), and PATH (Program for Appropriate Technology in Health) eTV gathered video material that will be used to support the Science of ECD multimedia resource. The footage, which focuses on maternal and child health programs that integrate early child development messages, will also be used by PATH and AKF in their educational resources. This successful filming project is yet another example of how eTV, in partnership, has established a reputation of excellence in video and media production both locally and internationally. Below are some pictures of the trip with video to come soon.

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

December 19, 2014

In case you had any doubt about this quote from George Orwell’s Animal Farm check out the “all knowing” nod from the sow 48.seconds into this video. It’s all a part of eTV’s/TLTC’s work with Apprentice Manitoba and Assiniboine Community College to create unique immersive educational products. The interactive panoramas that are being created will be completed early in the New Year but in the mean time we thought you might enjoy this romp through one of the pig barns at the University of Manitoba’s Farm and Food Discovery Centre.

Happy Holidays from the eTV gang!

eTV Studio A Panorama

November 10, 2014

eTV is currently piloting a teaching and learning technology that allows students to experience spaces without ever having to physically travel there. The eTV pilot offers a 360° panorama of our Studio A – Paramedicine classroom. Incorporating images, video, and interactive activities, users can explore the classroom, travel to one of our rural sites in Portage, and learn about the streaming process. As we continue to develop this pilot, we are looking into 3D imaging as well as 360° 3D video with Oculus technology to offer users a fully immersive experience.
