Carl Zeiss online campus

Did You Know…

…that ZEISS Puts the Classroom Online?

According to a current study by the ARD/ZDF Media Commission, more than 60 percent of Germans use the Internet on a daily basis, spending an average of two hours online. That’s plenty of time for them to further their education on the Internet. Online learning is the new trend: A growing number of universities offer attractive online learning platforms.

Together with Florida State University, ZEISS has launched an online campus for fluorescence microscopy. The knowledge platform illustrates this technology using different applications. It is no longer necessary to sit in a classroom to learn more about, say, the various techniques of fluorescence microscopy. At , you’ll not only find articles from trade journals, an image gallery, and interactive flash animations – you can also add your own contributions to what is offered.

The content of the online platform covers basic theoretical knowledge, technical backgrounds and practical applications. The program of study is topped off with articles by leading scientists. Experts see great potential in the further development of fluorescence microscopy. Super high-resolution microscopy, overcoming the diffraction barrier, and molecular-level imaging are the main subjects in 2009. Take a look at the world of luminous substances on the online campus.
