Red River College is required by law to educate and train employees and students on the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS), Canada’s hazard communication standard. As a result, a new WHMIS course has been developed and can be accessed by logging into LEARN. The course was created by RRC’s Environmental Health & Safety dept. and The Teaching Learning Technology Centre with some interactive activities courtesy of the British Columbia Institute of Technology – Learning and Teaching Centre, and a pictogram chart from the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety /Government of Canada.

eTV is pleased to have contributed to this important initiative with highly engaging, panoramic materials that enhance the learning experience for students taking this course.

eTV at LABCON 2016

June 21, 2016

eTV and Medical Laboratory Sciences were extremely proud to present the Microbiology Panorama to an audience of national delegates at LABCON 2016 in Charlottetown, PEI. LABCON is the annual national conference for medical laboratory professionals hosted by the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science. Recognized in the closing ceremonies as a highlight of the conference, audience members were taken through the process of creating the interactive Panorama and the many components, its purpose in teaching and learning, and were given a chance to view it with Oculus and Google Cardboard technology.

“It was apparent to the national delegation that the eTV department has many talented individuals with skills and abilities related to new teaching technologies that can be used in the classroom. Dylan and I were able to showcase the project and gain national recognition for the forward thinking and pioneering efforts being created and implemented at RRC.”
   – Michele Sykes, MLS instructor, Panorama content creator, and co-presenter

Time Lapse Technology

December 15, 2015

Earlier this summer construction of the new Skilled Trades and Technology Centre began. eTV has been tasked with documenting its progress over the next three years through the use of time lapse technology.

Mounted on the roof of Building A is an advanced camera system consisting of a Digital SLR and a special computer which schedules and takes the photos automatically. This entire system is encased in a heavy duty all-weather housing on the south east corner. Since Winnipeg is well known for being one of the sunniest cities in Canada we decided to run this entire system off solar energy!

For more information on the construction of the STTC please visit the link below.
