- “The virtual microscope eliminates all of the problems associated with using microscopes . . . The frustration associated with these problems has been eliminated and is perhaps the greatest advantage to the VM labs.” ~Faculty member at the Medical College of Wisconsin
- “This program is phenomenal. I wish all histology could have been this clear when I took it. J”. ~Second year student at Medical College of Wisconsin
- “The ease of use probably contributed to me studying slides more than I would have with conventional microscopy”. ~First year student at Medical College of Wisconsin
- “…The value of the site [WebSlide Finder] is beyond calculation, and will increase with each passing year and each added collection. You''''ve allowed me to fill in gaps in my own collection with high-grade images that I could never have obtained "live" because I simply don''''t have the slides with special stains and/or the money in my course budget to buy or make them. VM [virtual microscopy] gives me access to stuff my students NEED to see to increase their understanding of what I''''m teaching them, and it''''s a Godsend to the course… This service is a national treasure, of value to the life sciences teaching community, far beyond any conceivable price in dollars. “ ~Dr. Tom Caceci of Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine
- “This may have been the greatest transition/update one could possibly make. Sure, it is probably good to be familiar with the light microscopic techniques. However, the goal of this course appeared to be learning various tissues of the body rather than [microscope use]”. ~First year student at Medical College of Wisconsin
- “I have checked out all slides and they load fast and work well…I am pleased with the work that you have done for us. On time, done as directed, etc…it seems rare these days to find people who accomplish what is asked in a timely manner. Thanks for being on the ball!” ~ Faculty member at George Washington University
- “I did not use virtual microscope for the first histology exam but used it extensively for the second exam and feel I was much more prepared. Maybe in the future we could use it for parasitology (also). Thanks.” ~First year student at University of Tennessee, College of Veterinary Medicine
- “I think this was a good idea and should be used in other classes because you were able to study at home.” ~First year student at University of Tennessee, College of Veterinary Medicine
- “…the slides that were scanned from our collection are spectacular. We couldn''''t be happier. [Students] like being able to take snapshots, bring those into PowerPoint and label cells and structures. I am thrilled beyond belief at this tenacity on their part. I have really come to like the chat screen on sync''''d images. I have tutored kids from my office to their homes and it worked exactly as advertised.” ~ Dr. Steven Kayes at the University of South Alabama
