    Many thanks to SABER for providing a place where instructors are able to share ideas about how to keep college courses running during this crisis. We've had many instructors and departments reach out to us over the past few days about using SimBio's modules for remote learning due to school closures.

    Our inquiry-driven, simulation-based modules explore a wide range of biology topics and work well as homework assignments. Please take a look at our website (https://SimBio.com) to see if we have content of interest. If you identify content you'd like to use, if you and your college course are new to SimBio, we will be happy to set you/your course up with a free trial in our SimUText System, which lets you assign and deliver our materials to your students remotely. (If you already use SimBio modules, please see the email announcement we sent today.) 

    [Important note: our software requires installation of an application and is not currently compatible with chromebooks or tablets.]

    As you might imagine, as a small company we’re pretty busy trying to keep up with the sudden and immediate need for distance learning options. We'll do our best to respond quickly to your requests. We can only imagine how difficult this must be and we hope we can make it a little easier!

    Hi all,

    I would like to share a community curated list of resources from staff at American Society for Microbiology (ASM). Both google sheets are "living docs", and resources are updated daily. There is a place to contribute as well.

    1) Resources from ASM and 34 peer-reviewed Journal of Microbiology and Biology Education articles about online-related instructional techniques or tools http://bit.ly/ASM_JMBEresources

    2) Collection of undergraduate biology education resources for helping to move classes online, including example lectures, online labs, coronavirus info: http://bit.ly/Move_Biology_Online

    Good luck everyone!

    Learning Assistants (LAs) in online learning: If you are using LAs and would like resources for online learning and teaching in LA-supported courses, the Learning Assistant Alliance (LAA) has provided guidance and resources at this LAA eLearning Resources website (https://sites.google.com/view/laa-elearning/home).  You do not need to be a member of the LAA to access these resources.  If you are interested in becoming a member (free), you can register here (https://learningassistantalliance.org/index.php).
