"Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real in Laboratory Science"
Now open... 3D Virtual Reflections of a Digital COVID-19 Memorial
You are invited to visit the latest Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real integration project... "3D Virtual Reflections of a Digital COVID-19 Memorial”. It was created to share information about United Memories, a digital COVID-19 memorial honoring Black lives lost to COVID-19 in the United States. You can access it by using the VLTCC Destination Directory at the Landing Area. Click here to browse the photo album. Click here to learn more about United Memories, or submit information about a honoree; share artwork (or poetry); or submit resources for the grieving process.
A Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real integration of United Memories
The Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center (VLTCC) also known as the “Virtual Laboratory Training, Career Recruitment and Retention (VLTC) Project” is a 3D immersive virtual worlds integration of STI laboratory training; information sharing; laboratory guidelines; and medical laboratory science career awareness as well as public health resources. The STI Laboratory Training Center and Laboratory Career Center were inspired by a vision of the creator and builder...
The vision, "Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real" (R2V2R ) is reflected in the project's tagline "Real to Virtual; Virtual to Real in Laboratory Science". The mission of the VLTC Project is to integrate STI laboratory methods training; showcase medical laboratory science; share lab and public health content; and promote medical laboratory careers within 3D immersive virtual worlds. The nine (9) region Virtual Lab Training and Career Center complex includes...

VLTCC Tour #01, “Intro to the Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center” features a real-life public health colleague’s first visit to the Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center to assess usability.
VLTCC Tour #12 , "Gono Cluster Laboratory" features the virtual-based "field" laboratory designed and built to share information; and to visualize laboratory methods used in the examination and identification of Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
The VLTCC team is pleased to present the “3D Immersive Virtual Worlds Series", a visual storytelling component of the “Virtual Laboratory Training, Career Recruitment and Retention (VLTC) Project”. The purpose of the Series is to share the VLTC Project creator’s experiences and “lessons learned” while building and using 3D immersive virtual worlds for medical laboratory training; information-sharing; public health updates; laboratory science career awareness and networking.
Each story features a VLTCC parcel, building activities, or other project-related topics. Th first story, VLTCC #01: "Intro to the Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center" features a real-life public health colleague’s visit to the Virtual Laboratory Training and Career Center (VLTCC). As my colleague explored the various areas within the VLTCC complex, we were able to assess usability, voice communication, and navigation skills as experienced by a first-time 3D immersive virtual world user.
The integration of 3D immersive virtual worlds for information-sharing; training; and public awareness. You can select any desired membership level.
