The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way of working and living around the entire world. Unfortunately its influence on actions during scientific expeditions has to be evaluated as negative. Restrictions vastly limiting ability to travel around the world have frozen the execution of many institutional projects and initiatives, which has affected the cultural heritage domain as well. This article presents a methodology of temporarily avoiding travel restrictions by organizing a virtual scientific expedition. The 3D Silk Road project, and its modification enforced by the pandemic situation, is used as a case study. The authors describe: (1) the methodology of organizing virtual scientific expeditions to 3D scan objects of cultural heritage, (2) the methodology implementation, and (3) its results - a virtual micro-exhibition of 3D scanned works by Haydar Boturov, a clay sculptor from Uzbekistan. The methodology was proven successful in practice and might be used in other projects affected by severe travel restrictions between countries.

The innovative Eye Movement Modelling Examples (EMMEs) method can be used in medicine as an educational training tool for the assessment and verification of students and professionals. Our work was intended to analyse the possibility of using eye tracking tools to verify the skills and training of people engaged in laboratory medicine on the example of parasitological diagnostics. Professionally active laboratory diagnosticians working in a multi-profile laboratory (non-parasitological) (n = 16), laboratory diagnosticians no longer working in this profession (n = 10), and medical analyst students (n = 56), participated in the study. The studied group analysed microscopic images of parasitological preparations made with the cellSens Dimension Software (Olympus) system. Eye activity parameters were obtained using a stationary, video-based eye tracker Tobii TX300 which has a 3-ms temporal resolution. Eye movement activity parameters were analysed along with time parameters. The results of our studies have shown that the eye tracking method is a valuable tool for the analysis of parasitological preparations. Detailed quantitative and qualitative analysis confirmed that the EMMEs method may facilitate learning of the correct microscopic image scanning path. The analysis of the results of our studies allows us to conclude that the EMMEs method may be a valuable tool in the preparation of teaching materials in virtual microscopy. These teaching materials generated with the use of eye tracking, prepared by experienced professionals in the field of laboratory medicine, can be used during various training, simulations and courses in medical parasitology and contribute to the verification of education results, professional skills, and elimination of errors in parasitological diagnostics.

In this paper we report on the use of the NetLab remote laboratory located in Australia, accessed outside the country, including Sri Lanka, Poland, Singapore and Sweden and other tens of locations. After a review of the current use and the development of NetLab, we concentrate on the overseas applications of the remote laboratory. There is an increasing recognition by students using remote laboratories that their learning experience is comparable with working in real laboratories. Remote laboratories enable working in a safe, an international, multicultural environment, becoming more and more important in the era of globalisation and coronavirus.
