This interactive module allows students to examine fossils of early humans and compare them to modern primates.

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.

Interactive Assessment for Evolving Switches, Evolving Bodies

A number of interactive questions are embedded within the short film The Making of the Fittest: Evolving Switches, Evolving Bodies, which illustrates how mutations in gene regulatory regions can result in the evolution of major anatomical features.

Interactive Assessment for The Biology of Skin Color

A number of interactive questions are embedded within the short film The Biology of Skin Color, which explores the hypothesis that the variations in skin color in humans arose as adaptations to the intensity of ultraviolet radiation in different parts of the world.

Interactive Assessment for The Origin of Humans

A number of questions are embedded within the short film Great Transitions: The Origin of Humans. The film explores the major fossil finds from Africa that provide insights into the evolution of modern humans from a common ancestor we share with other primates.

Interactive Assessment for The Beak of the Finch

A number of questions are embedded within the short film The Origin of Species: The Beak of the Finch, which explores four decades of research on the evolution of the Galápagos finches.

Interactive Assessment for The Birth and Death of Genes

A number of questions are embedded within the short film The Making of the Fittest: The Birth and Death of Genes, which illustrates how gene duplications and mutations have led to remarkable physiological adaptations in Antarctic fish.

Explore Your Inner Animals

This interactive module explores different anatomical features of the human body and what they reveal about the evolutionary history of humans.

Stickleback Evolution Virtual Lab

This interactive, modular lab explores how stickleback fish and fossil specimens are used to study evolutionary processes, with an emphasis on data collection and analysis.
