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.

Time spent reviewing site: 15 minutes

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 sectionÂ’s 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.

Technical Remarks:

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**.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to use. Basic knowledge of the net needed only. Infrasctructure is well
designed and has a basic, but very neat and appealing appearance.
