3D models of UBC’s unique soil monolith collection provide students with opportunities for more “in-depth” observations of soil properties. Those observations are a valuable addition to both in-person and online classes. [read more]

(Resource creation began in February 2021) Students can “fly-through” various virtual tree canopies to observe the light penetration level of different tree species. Real-life observations would have been logistically impossible.

(Resource creation began in May 2021) 3D models were first implemented in January 2022.  Students can study the morphology of the entire animal as well as zoom in to see the fine  details of specific areas on each 3D fossil model. This effectively simulates an in-person lab  experience in an entirely online class.[read more]
