VIRTUAL LABORATORY AND HERBARIUM AS TEACHING TOOLS FOR BOTANICAL SCIENCES: EXPERIENCES IN MYCOLOGY, WEED SCIENCE AND PLANT PATHOLOGY COURSES

E. Gallego, J. Sanchez

University of Almeria (SPAIN)
Subjects in the area of Botany have an important practical component necessary for contacting with living organisms. Since 2005, the authors have been adapting to e-learning and b-learning different courses in this area of knowledge in the fields of Mycology, Weed Science and Plant Pathology in the Virtual Classroom at the University of Almeria (UAL) and the Andalusian Virtual Campus (CAV). Throughout this experience, various degrees and virtualization techniques have been used for developing the practice of subjects, with the main aid of microscopic and digital photography. In b-learning courses, some lab sessions have been realized virtually. In the case of Weed Science (at the CAV) a completely virtual model has been designed. Perhaps in the future may be extended to other subjects. Virtual herbaria were also used, where instead of collecting the plants, press them, dry them and include them in sheets, digital photography was used.
