This site would be an excellent supplementary learning source in an introductory/semi-advanced biology course. Hitting on all the key subjects in biology, there is a lot of information to be garnered from this site. The information all seems to be relatively current in terms of what is currently accepted by the biology community. Unfortunately the software for the applications on the site is no longer available which severely limits the ability of this site to be used as a learning object other than that of an open source text book.

This website provides exceptional interactivity. Users have the option of first reading through a text-style tutorial, and then testing their knowledge in either a series of randomized questions from a large selection, or in a systematic path from beginning to end that prevented jumping ahead (dependent upon each sections design). Topics are presented in a sequence that is logical to the subject, but different sections may be selected at will. This site was reviewed for part of a lesson plan assignment; it took several hours to travel and learn from the entire site; it would be great to use it in the classroom.
An exceptional variety of learning techniques were used in this site. The amino acid structural building graphics, and all of the equations and chemical formula, exhibit different approaches for all types of learners and not a typo to be found. There were no troubles in switching amongst its numerable relevant topics, and its use could be adapted for students preparing for tests on their own or for classroom use. Concepts and models are not only educationally significant; they are highly relevant and very well done.

Serves as a very good supplement for the multidisciplinary approach to intro or advanced biology. The structure of the site allows students the opportunity to review content as their knowledge base increases. The information is current and contains the general required subjedcts/materials an introductory to intermediate student should have. The content allows the instructor to assess the student learner in a wide variety of subjects. ***MAY SERVE AS A GOOD ASSESSMENT/TUTORIAL TOOL FOR A STUDENT ATTEMPTING TO TEST OUT OF A GENERAL BIO DISCIPLINE COURSE**.
Easy to use. Basic knowledge of the net needed only. Infrasctructure is well designed and has a basic, but very neat and appealing appearance.
