The BIOL-O-GEE R.A.P. videos are exceptionally well-done and certainly add some accurate and exciting perspectives about many topics to my classes. This one, on the circulatory system, is one of my favorites. The detail and presentation style for all of these BIOL-O-GEE R.A.P. videos keep students actively engaged.

Used in course? Yes
Time spent reviewing site: Have used these videos for several years in the classroom
