- 1 - MEFANET 2011 Conference 3D ANIMATIONS IN EDUCATION OF MEDICAL STUDENTS J. Majerník 1 , D. Kluchová 2 , K. Kozlíková 3 1 Department of Medical Informatics, Faculty of Medicine, Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, Trieda SNP 1, Slovak Republic 2 Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, Šrobárova 2, Slovak Republic 3 Institute of Medical Physics, Biophysics, Informatics and Telemedicine, Faculty of Medicine, Comenius University in Bratislava, Sasinkova 2, Slovak Republic Abstract Traditional forms of education in the area of human anatomy were supported by the system of 3D virtual projection installed at the Faculty of medicine in Košice. 3D projection system, based on principles of virtual reality, is located in the lecture room with the capacity of 200 students. Using specialized glasses the students feel an existence of 3D space and they are allowed to study human body in more detailed forms. Even if the students’ response is very positive, the education using virtual projection is limited to the time schedule of lecture room. Due to this, the teachers asked us to create education materials playable also outside the lecture room and its virtual projection system. To meet these needs we started to prepare so called 2D versions of education movies. These can be equipped by audio and text comments and/or explanations of teachers. At the present, the movies are prepared according to the syllabus for Anatomy guaranteed by Department of anatomy. Database of such materials will be available for the students in the classroom equipped with 10 personal computers as first. Later, we suppose to create also an off-line version in the form of DVD and after completion of all necessary modules the movies will be offered and available in on-line forms as well. Using this way, we expect to reach our primary goal that is to offer students the possibilities of detailed study of human body, its organs and their topographical relations. On the other hand, these materials will be useable repetitively during different education activities. Key words : virtual projection, 3D movies, anatomy, education 3D virtual projection The 3D system of virtual projection was installed in the lecture room with the capacity of 200 persons with the aim to make education more effective and more illustrative. Its three main components were continuously tested and improved according to the skills we have reached while preparing first
