The revolution has even reached the realm of teaching petrographic techniques in the shape of the Open University's Virtual Microscope. What does the Virtual Microscope offer? Is it a replacement for the teaching miao scope? Or replacement for the lecturer or demonstrator? Or both? Is there hope here for re vitalising student interest and expertise in petrogTaphic techniques, the scope of which in most undergraduate courses (at least in the UK) has seen constant and extensive erosion in recent years as traditional course contents have been squeezed?
