Abstract

The remarkable increase of information posted on the websites requires critical selection of reliable sources, which can be used for undergraduate and graduate education. These resources represent mostly secondary references that help to deliver complex science concepts to students using visual materials (video clips, movies, and online lectures) and can be efficiently incorporated in a learning management system such as Sakai. As a part of additional resources for the upper year undergraduate courses in cell biology, we introduce references and videos from the websites of the American Society for Cell Biology and the life sciences companies. We have noticed that students become much more confident in performing laboratory exercises with animal cell culture and fluorescence microscopy, once they watched the corresponding video clips on these methods in advance. Primary references are also available on the web including peer reviewed and databases-indexed video journals such as The Journal of Visualized Experiments. We will review and summarize our experience in managing these primary and secondary resources in cell biology class.
