This is a nice overview of biometric technologies. It would be useful in an introductory security and loss prevention class, or perhaps introductory criminal justice or business courses, to give students a basic understanding of the capabilities of this technology.

Technical Remarks:

No technical requirements beyond a basic Internet connection to the site.
