Recent research (Jonas-Dwyer & Sudweeks, 2007) indicated that when virtual microscopes were introduced to third year health science students as part of their histology and pathology laboratory work, no detrimental effects were found. To investigate the use of virtual microscopes further, an extended study was undertaken with both second and third year health sciences students. In this paper, we report the results of students’ learning approaches and compare the outcomes to identify and evaluate changes in students’ learning approaches when using virtual microscopes rather than optical microscopes.
