The Virtual Microscopy Adaptive Tutorials (VMATs) teach histology and histopathology to over 1,200 students each year. The VMATs present high resolution digital images (+5GB in size) within the Adaptive eLearning Platform. In as little as 15 minutes, a teacher can define regions of health and disease, create questions around these and provide dynamic feedback including, text, images, video and links to further resources.
