This module provides an overview of select microscopy training resources and microscopy learning platforms suitable to users and staff of light microscopy core facilities.
MyScope is an online learning platform developed by Microscopy Australia (https://micro.org.au/). MyScope provides in-depth information into topics focused on light microscopy and electron microscopy. In addition, MyScope provides an opportunity to operate a virtual high-end microscope mimicking real life experience. MyScope can be used by researchers interested in learning microscopy technologies and by staff of imaging core facilities within the context of user training.
