Interactive Exploration of Coral Bleaching

The added information provided at pause points within the animation Coral Bleaching allows for a richer exploration of coral reefs, symbiosis, and other topics in biology.

Understanding Global Change

This interactive module allows students and educators to build models that explain how the Earth system works. The Click & Learn can be used to show how Earth is affected by human activities and natural phenomena.

Winogradsky Column: Microbial Ecology in a Bottle

This interactive module consists of a virtual Winogradsky column, which can be used to explore the diversity of microbes, microbial metabolic strategies, and geochemical gradients found in sediments.

Population Dynamics

This interactive simulation allows students to explore two classic mathematical models that describe how populations change over time: the exponential and logistic growth models.

Sampling and Normal Distribution

This interactive simulation allows students to graph and analyze sample distributions taken from a normally distributed population.

Paleoclimate: A History of Change

This interactive module examines Earth’s past and present climate, highlighting the effects of two important factors: solar radiation and the composition of the atmosphere.

EarthViewer

This interactive module allows students to explore the science of Earth's deep history, from its formation 4.5 billion years ago to modern times.

Bacterial Quorum Sensing

This tutorial describes how bacteria communicate by a process known as quorum sensing, as shown through a series of experiments involving genetically engineered bioluminescent bacteria.

Symbiotic Bioluminescence

This tutorial describes the symbiosis between the Hawaiian bobtail squid and bioluminescent bacteria.

Cells of the Immune System

This tutorial provides an overview of the immune system, concentrating on the roles played by B and T lymphocytes, and on the antigen-presentation system.
