This is a pretty good online textbook with some nice artwork.  More animations and simulations would enrich this site.

"Biology Textbook (on-Line) is like a library where you have any ressource you need when it comes to teaching biology. it has approsimately 59 texbooks which are short text on specific topics. They are very useful in terms of exposing students to varied sources of learning. When planing lessons it is important to consult more than one textbook. this website gives me as a teacher the oportunity to use mulitiple sources in planing instructions.

This site and its resources have been recently updated. Despite the lack of interaction, the images/illustrations and textual content are very worthwhile.

A collection of introductory biology lecture notes. Very thorough, but not
particularly interactive for students. Would be a valuable resource for
beginning teachers.

Technical Remarks:

Liked the hyperlinks to definitions of terms.
