We were having a discussion today about the possibility of using computers
as teaching aids in our botany department for example mutimedia boards
running CD-ROM sound etc to get across concepts like plant morphology
plant physiology, evolution, ecology....the list goes on and on.
With all this great new audio/visual technology out there i figure that there
must be some great programs which for example "let you take a ride through
the vascular bundle of a plant" or look inside a chloroplast etc etc.
Anybody got any ideas....i remember isaak asimos created some type of CD-ROM
based package for physics?
