I use this as a supplemental resource for an online non-majors biology course that focuses on genetics. I particularly like the interactive activities, allowing students to build a DNA model, translate and transcribe a gene, as well as many others. The videos are simple, educational, and effective at presenting genetics concepts.
Used in course? Yes

to use the internet to enhance the learning experience for students, the
Genetics Science Learning Center is an excellent model for others to follow.
