Abstract: We present a use of Grid technologies to deliver educational content and support collaborative learning. “Potted” pathology specimens produce many problems with conservation and appropriate access; these issues are exasperated by planned increase in medical students. A solution is to obtain accurate organ models using point-based colour laser scanning techniques. These large datasets create visually compelling and accurate (topology and colour) virtual organs, but will often overwhelm local resources, requiring the use of specialised facilities for display and interaction. We use the Resource-Aware Visualization Environment (RAVE) to collaboratively display these models, supporting multiple simultaneous users on a range of resources, including a direct video feed into AccessGrid.
