Challenges and Opportunities for Learning Biology in Distance-Based Settings
Hallyburton, Chad L.; Lunsford, Eddie
Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, v39 n1 p27-33 May 2013
The history of learning biology through distance education is documented. A review of terminology and unique problems associated with biology instruction is presented. Using published research and their own teaching experience, the authors present recommendations and best practices for managing biology in distance-based formats. They offer ideas on resources for content, laboratory activities, safety and interaction among class participants. The need for research on the efficacy of virtual labs and simulations in adult biology education is noted.
