This is a seminar/hands-on course for graduate students interested in working
with and publishing CT data. This class will provide a forum for students to
become experts on cranial osteology in the course of exploring the technical
issues of acquiring, designing, manipulating, authoring, and publishing digital
content. This is a project-based course, where students will work towards producing a labeled CT data set on the Web and on CD-ROM.
Instructors: Tim Rowe and
