Courses on iBiology
iBiology offers several different types of courses. We have a custom OpenEdX platform where we host courses on professional development for trainees, flipped courses based on our videos with added discussion questions and assessments, and course series, including our highly-viewed microscopy series, which are series of videos that cover a particular topic or area of research.
iBiology Courses on OpenEdX is dedicated to bringing you hosted and self-paced courses that help you do good science and enhance your career and professional development. Through this excellent learning platform, we bring you world-class instructors, high-quality videos (unlike any online course videos you’ve seen), peer-to-peer interaction, and in-depth, reflective assessments. Courses currently offered on this platform:
We’ve created modules (series of videos), that go together in a structured way. These videos all have questions and answers (accessible to everyone) to test your knowledge and understanding throughout the series.
In the Flipped Courses section, you can find several flipped course curricula, where a topic in biology is explored through a series of our seminars. Each seminar in the series has a discussion question that addresses the bigger picture, as well as assessments that are educator only (register here), so educators can use them in the classroom.
