Dr. Chin's Tips for Using Biology Video Lessons in the Classroom

Dr. Greg Chin, Biology

I have worked with students from the junior high to graduate student level. One of the challenges I know instructors of all levels often face is how to pack all the content you want to cover into a single school year. Our online video lessons are a great way to supplement your base lesson plans. Here are a few ways you might be able to use them:

Visual Aides for Physiology and Anatomy

There are so many physiological systems to cover that sometimes you have to skip some or at least cover some more superficially than you would prefer. You might want to use's online video lessons to cover some topics like an overview of the brain to give yourself more classroom lecture time to cover other topics in more depth.

Showing Mitosis

Some concepts are easier to understand when you can see the moving parts like chromosome and spindle movement during mitosis. You may find our mitosis videos helpful as a study aide for students or a visual tool for your lectures.

Understanding the Metric System

Finally, the beginning of the school year often entails students reviewing basic information from previous courses. Rather than assign textbook chapters to read, you could assign videos like this one that covers the metric system. As an added bonus, the 'I forgot my textbook' excuse won't work since a student can watch these videos on his or her smartphone!

Speaking on behalf of the entire scientific faculty, our goal is to provide a high quality educational product that will make learning science fun and easy for even the most reluctant student. We hope that you find our video lessons valuable in your instruction!
