Google has brought many a resourceful applications through Google Labs.

Google Earth is a virtual globe, map and geographical information program that was originally called EarthViewer 3D, and was created by Keyhole, Inc, a company acquired by Google in 2004. The product was re-released as Google Earth in 2005.

Google launched the Google Maps API in June 2005 to allow developers to integrate Google Maps into their websites.

The list goes long with Google books, calendar, news, search, videos, wave and so on.

Last year Google launched its new high-tech 3D product- Google Body. Google Body is a detailed 3D model of the human body. You can peel back anatomical layers, zoom in, and navigate to parts that interest you. Click to identify anatomy, or search for muscles, organs, bones and more.

One can also share the exact scene being viewed by copying and pasting the corresponding URL.

Google Body, which is already available in web form, can now run on Android tablets that use the 3.0 Honeycomb version of Google’s mobile operating system. Using 3D graphics capabilities of the latest tablets such as Motorola’s Xoom, the hardware is now good enough to properly display a 3D-heavy app such as Google Body, which lets you look at your organs, muscles and bones.

It looks like a pretty cool way to explore the human body – just like earth or maps, you can strip away layers (i.e. skin, bones, etc.), rotate it in 3D, and search for body parts before having them highlighted in the app. Teachers are gonna have a gala time giving anatomy classes to students.

As healthcare facilities across the nation admit more patients, increase demands on doctors and face nursing shortages, they cannot afford to have their employees spend any more time taking federally mandated training than is necessary. They need to save both time and money while ensuring that their staff have obtained required certification.

Inspired by the increased need for effective healthcare e-learning and by the need for healthcare educators to understand e-learning technologies and standards, instructional design techniques, and adult learning principles; InfoPro Learning, Inc started it’s healthcare e-learning practice. This independent function provides information and collaborative solutions and opportunities to the diverse set of individuals involved in healthcare e-learning, including instructional designers, healthcare educators and administrators, publishers, IT system administrators, and web developers.

According to the executive leadership of InfoPro,  “Other industries, including aviation and defense, have successfully leveraged online learning to train their workforces, but as with other technologies, healthcare has been far behind in using learning technologies effectively. Finally, healthcare is beginning to embrace e-learning as professional societies, universities, teaching hospitals, government, and commercial enterprises include it as a part of their overall strategy. What we have not seen yet is a lot of high quality content or cost-effective use of e-learning resources.”

Often experienced healthcare education providers have problems understanding where and how technology standards map into effective e-learning, and IT implementers often fail to understand the role of pedagogy. InfoPro Learning brings together the realms of technology and pedagogy for effective e-learning.

Our heathcare function serves as a comprehensive source for entities who produce and distribute online healthcare education for all levels of learners. Through our continous learning and practice we thrive to provide information and collaborative opportunities and solutions on a range of areas in e-learning including pedagogy (i.e., instructional design, assessment, distance learning, and curriculum development), technology standards, educational technology, educational metrics, e-learning economics, and issues and methods specific to healthcare education.

Areas for online healthcare education: Clinical Training, Surgical Training, CME through Distance Education, Healthcare Sales Force Training, Medical Equipment Training, Practice Management Training, Occupational Safety & Health Administration, and much more.
