remote access to ImageJ

Joel Sheffield
Hi All,

I am teaching a Cell Biology course to a class of about 350 juniors and
seniors.  As part of the lab component of the course, we use ImageJ for
analysis of images.  Normally, ImageJ is loaded onto the computers that the
students use in the labs.  However, in the present chaotic situation, we
are teaching our labs online and, as you can imagine, struggling with how
to convey a lab experience to  students who are working from home.  For
most of them, it should be possible for them to download ImageJ on to their
own computers, but I am concerned that a number of the students may be
uncomfortable with downloading and installation, or may have equipment
issues.

So, I was wondering if there was a way in which students could log into a
central system and use the program remotely.  Any suggestions would be
welcome.  --

Thank you very much.
Joel

Re: remote access to ImageJ

Hi Joel- My class is much smaller, but we have been having students install Fiji on their personal computer for years.  This year, it was even more critical after the Spring semester shutdown.  We have had no problems getting everyone going on Fiji on their personal computers.  Between the Fiji installer package and an instruction sheet we put together, it went very smoothly.   I would suggest that it would be a good learning experience for anyone getting a college degree who is not comfortable with software download and installation.  I suspect that few will have problems that need support.  Dave

Re: remote access to ImageJ

G. Esteban Fernandez
I use FIJI with my high school students and they had no problem installing
at home, on both Win10 and MacOS, by just sending them to http://fiji.sc
with no further instructions from me. College upper class people should be
able to handle it.

For access to remote computers by my students and users I use
http://remotedesktop.google.com; works well on any platform and is free.

Re: remote access to ImageJ

Cammer, Michael-3
In reply to this post by Joel Sheffield
After the covid shutdown we quickly threw together a course on image analysis and ImageJ.   Initially, approximately 200 students reported that they were able to get ImageJ up-and-running.  A handful needed a little more help, typically because they did not read the instructions carefully, but following these guidelines, which were followed by instructions on setting options for memory etc, they reported all was working.  BTW, teaching ImageJ by screen-sharing and demonstrating over Zoom worked really well. We solicited data from trainees and this was great.

Cheers-

Michael


Unless you have full administrative permissions, do not install in the Programs Files directory or Applications (on Mac). Also, recommend do not install on desktop, especially if your computer has a home drive on a network.

Recommended: install in your documents folder. If you are on a network, make sure this is the local documents folder.

Installation is just copying a folder containing a bunch of files to your computer. It's this simple. You can even keep it on a USB key and run it anywhere.



To install

Fiji: Just go here http://fiji.sc/ and download.
Then follow instructions below for updating, setting memory, and setting up additional macro &/or plugins commands.

or

ImageJ: Download from http://rsbweb.nih.gov/ij/download.html.
Install bundled with Java 1.8
If you have problems installing on Mac, please look here<http://microscopynotes.com/imagej/getting_started/installingOSX/index.html>.
You need to install the LOCI Bio-Formats so that you may open files saved in different formats. The file is named "bioformats_package.jar" and goes in the plugins folder in the ImageJ folder. Get it here https://www.openmicroscopy.org/bio-formats/downloads/

Thank you all.  I am glad to see that you had so little trouble, and it
gives me much more confidence in setting this up.  I did teach a small
class at the end of the Spring semester, using Zoom and screen sharing that
did seem to go well.  Perhaps I am just overthinking this.
