Over the past two years, eTV in partnership with the Medical Laboratory Sciences department has created immersive and interactive panoramas for three Microbiology Laboratories, showcasing different clinical environments: Red River College (educational), Westman Labs (urban), and Stonewall Diagnostics (rural). The success of these Microbiology panoramas has been recognized by students and professionals on a national scale.
The clinical setting for medical laboratory science students is diverse and unknown. Many of these spaces are restricted access to the public, so familiarizing/orienting someone to these environments is challenging. A student may not understand or comprehend the laboratories function within a rural community, which is drastically different then the tertiary facility. The panoramas allow for the exploration and understanding of these different environments that would otherwise be restricted.

Take a virtual tour of Red River College’s Professional Photography Lab! eTV has created an immersive virtual tour of the professional photo studio, which guides you through the studio and classroom spaces, instructor profiles and alumni work. The tour will help potential students (and sponsors) with their decisions to enrol (or fund students) in the Professional Photography program.
“I am extremely proud to share with you the completed RRC Academic Interest Areas video series. This massive project – which took two years to complete – was made possible thanks to a tremendous partnership between RRC Marketing and RRC eTV studios. With the exception of hired voice talent and music track licensing, all work was completed using in-house personnel, equipment, and resources. Each video was carefully shot and scripted for a long shelf life, to align with and showcase RRC’s brand, and with the ultimate goal of providing prospective students from all over Manitoba and around the globe with rich media content to help them as they consider a RRC education – another set of powerful tools in our marketing and recruitment arsenal.”
– Christian Robin, Director, Marketing & Web Presence

Over the last several years eTV has helped to create a lot of outstanding media material for the Science of Early Childhood Development Resource. This piece (below), created by the Aga Khan Development Network, utilizes much of our footage from around the world. We in eTV/RRC have been very fortunate to be associated with this organization which works with governments and communities around the world to help children reach their full potential.
Wow! We talk about Virtual Reality as an immersive technology and we certainly were immersed in it over the last several weeks. With numerous tours through our studio combined with MADLaT (Manitoba Association for Distributed Learning and Training) and RED Forum presentations that focused on new technology, VR is buzzing around eTV and Red River College. And why not – this technology is brimming with opportunities to enhance the teaching and learning process in a very powerful way. eTV continues to be at the forefront of VR development here at RRC and as always we welcome any interest that will help forward this exciting technology.
On Wednesday, March 22nd, eTV was privileged to be part of the Let’s Talk presentation with our live streaming service. Michael Landsberg, TSN sports journalist and one of the faces of Bell Let’s Talk Day, spoke with college staff and students about the stigma related to mental health issues. RRC also tied in this event with the announcement of the Healthy Minds Healthy College initiative which will enhance mental health programming for the entire college community.
